Frequently Asked Questions

Why did NBA leave Vancouver?

NBA pulled out of Vancouver due to a dispute over arena financing. The City planned to provide $40 million for the construction of a new arena that would feature 12 luxury suites and two restaurants. The City Council wanted to provide $60 million in taxpayer funds to team owners to repay their existing debt. This meant the city would have to borrow $200 million to build the arena, while the team owners only had to pay back $20 million in debt. This would leave the city's taxpayers responsible for the repayment of the remaining loan.

The City Council indicated that they would approve the plan if Rogers Arena was allowed to remain until the new facility is opened. However, the league refused to compromise and said that the arena was too small for them. Because it was too small, they didn't want anymore to play there. They felt that asking them to play in a smaller venue was unfair, especially since they weren't making any additional revenue.

The City Council then requested that the province step in to offer financial assistance. The province agreed to provide $150 million towards the project, but the City Council still needed another $100 million. The City decided to focus its efforts on building a new downtown arena and dropped its plans.


Vancouver had an NBA team.

Vancouver does NOT have a NBA team. From 1995 to 2001, the city was home to the Vancouver Grizzlies. However, the team moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 2001. Now, basketball enthusiasts in Vancouver support the Toronto Raptors as they are the closest NBA team to the area. Additionally, there are other professional basketball clubs that play in the Greater Vancouver Area. These include the BC Tigers from the Canadian Elite Basketball League as well as the Vancouver Volcanoes from the International Basketball League. There are many amateur and semi-professional basketball teams that play in local leagues.

Aside from playing basketball, there are many other recreational outlets for fans in Vancouver to connect with their favourite sport. Vancouver Grizzlies Alumni Association aims to help former players connect with each other, and raise awareness about the game in British Columbia. The association hosts events such as viewing parties for Raptors games and clinics to help young players develop their game.

The city's love of basketball has not decreased since the departures of the Grizzlies. And it continues to be a supportive community in numerous ways. Vancouverites continue to share their passion for basketball through attending games, watching Raptors games, and supporting the many initiatives taken by former players as well as other organizations working to increase awareness about basketball in the area.


How did the Raptors win the NBA title in 2019?

DeMar DeRozan was traded to Toronto Raptors by Jakob Poltl (protected 2019 first-round draft pick) and a Toronto Raptors player in return for Kawhi Leonard.

On February 7, 2019, the Raptors traded Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright C. J. Miles, as well as a 2024 2nd-round draft pick to Memphis Grizzlies, were traded by the Raptors for Marc Gasol--another All-Star and former Defender Player of Year--and signed Jeremy Lin shortly following.

Two big trades by the Toronto Raptors sent shockwaves through NBA. The Raptors first traded DeMar DeRozan, Jakob Poltl, and a 2019 first-round draft pick (that was protected) to the San Antonio Spurs. In exchange they received Kawhi and Danny Green from Spurs. They traded Jonas Valanciunas and Delon Wright C. J. Miles and a 2024 2nd-round draft pick to Memphis Grizzlies were traded for Marc Gasol--another All-Star, former Defensive Player-of-the-Year. These trades put the Raptors in an excellent position to contend for an NBA championship this season. Let's have a closer look at each trade.

Kawhi Leonard trade was a risky move by the Raptors. Leonard is an MVP-caliber player when healthy, and he's a top-5 player in league. His injury last season limited him to playing just nine games, and there is concern about his long-term physical health. However, the Raptors decided the reward was well worth the risk and settled for the deal. So far, Leonard has been healthy and has been playing at an All-Star level. Leonard is averaging 26 point, 8 rebounds and 3 assists per contest while shooting 49% from 3-point range and 38% from the field. If he can stay healthy, he gives the Raptors a real chance to win an NBA title this season.

Marc Gasol's trade for Gasol was more of an immediate move than anything else. Gasol is now in his 30s and clearly has reached his peak. Yet, he is still a solid player who can bring valuable experience to a young Raptors roster. He averages 15 points and 8 rebounds per game. He also shoots 34% from three point range. C.J. and Delon Wright were both young assets that the Raptors had to give up. Miles was acquired by Gasol. However, the Raptors believe his expertise will prove to be valuable during playoffs.

The Raptors started the season with a 6-0 record. They won their 16th game against Cleveland Cavaliers on November 23rd. This broke their franchise record of 20 consecutive wins. On December 1, they reached 20 wins faster than ever before. Also, after defeating Washington Wizards 140-138 in double overtime on January 13, the Raptors set a franchise record for scoring the most points in franchise history. The Raptors took precautions with Leonard and rested him for more 20 games to avoid worsening the injury. The Raptors still managed to capture the 2nd East seed, trailing only behind the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Raptors continued to be successful in the playoffs. They beat the Philadelphia 76ers, Orlando Magic, and Milwaukee Bucks to make it to the NBA Finals for first time in their history. Leonard was named Finals MVP after the Raptors claimed their first title, beating the Golden State Warriors 6 to 6.

The Toronto Raptors had a very successful offseason, which has paid off in a big way. The Raptors have two All-Stars and are ready to compete for the title in years to come. They have demonstrated that they can make bold moves and take risks if it means putting together a championship-calibre team. It will be fascinating to see if they can maintain this level of success in the future.


Why is Toronto Raptors called Raptors

The NBA's expansion into Canada in 1995 saw the founding of Toronto Raptors. The name and logo of the team were inspired by Jurassic Park's film. The team colors are bright red, silver, purple, black and silver.

The Raptors were struggling to establish themselves in the league during their first season. They ended up with a record 21-61. However, the team improved each year, and by 1999, they had made their first playoff appearance.

The Raptors' most memorable moment came in 2019 when they won their first NBA championship title. Toronto was led by Kawhi Leonard and Kyle Lowry in the backcourt, winning their first NBA championship.

The Raptors have been one of Canada's most beloved teams since that time. Toronto continues to excite basketball fans from around the world, with international superstars and local talent.

Canada's proud heritage is represented by the Toronto Raptors. Their success on the courts inspires young basketball players all over the country. The Raptors will continue being a favourite team because of their passionate fans and unique style.


What was the Toronto Raptors first season?

The Toronto Raptors won just 21 games during their debut season. The 1995-1996 Toronto Raptors season was the inaugural season of the Toronto Raptors in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Raptors were one of two expansion teams that joined the league that year, along with the Vancouver Grizzlies. It was also the first NBA season playing outside of the United States.

Isiah Tom, an All Star point guard and a Detroit Pistons legend was named the team's general manager. He helped draft Damon Stoudamire to be named Rookie and Year. In separate trades they also acquired Tracy Murray, Oliver Miller and Oliver Miller. Thomas introduced a new primary logo featuring a dinosaur playing basketball, and pinstripe uniforms that featured the logo on their jerseys. The Raptors added purple and red to their color scheme.

The Raptors' debut under new head coach Brendan Malone on November 3 ended in a victory against the New Jersey Nets at the SkyDome, but they lost their next seven games.

Murray was second on the team for scoring, with an average of 16.2 points per contest. He also led the team by scoring 151 three-point field goal attempts during that season. Miller scored 12.9 points, had 7.4 rebound, 1.4 steals and 1.9 block per game. Robertson added 9.3 point, 4.4 rebound, four assists, and two steals per night from the bench.

Despite having the worst attendance record in the league they still managed to attract over 17283 fans per match at SkyDome (now Rogers Centre).


How many years have the Raptors been together as a team?

Toronto Raptors, an NBA team located in Toronto (Ontario), is home to the Toronto Raptors. In 1995, the NBA added the Raptors to its expansion roster along with the Vancouver Grizzlies. The Raptors are the only Canadian-based NBA basketball team.

Toronto Raptors are based at Scotiabank Arena, where they play their home games. The Maple Leafs, a city's NHL club, also uses the arena. Since their inception in 1921, the Raptors have played in the NBA playoffs thirteen times. Their most recent appearance was in 2021 when they were defeated in six games by the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Raptors were eligible for their first playoff appearance in 1999/2000. They were swept by New York Knicks their division rivals in the first round.

The fans were few and far between, and the team wasn't too exciting either. There wasn't anything to root for, nor was there anyone who cared. After years and years of failure, the team decided it was time to change. They went to great lengths to appeal to the masses.

In 2001, the team hired a professional advertising agency to help develop a marketing strategy that would make them famous in national markets. They created a slogan that screamed "Hear me roar!"

The slogan was created to advertise the fact that all the games had been sold out. All they had to do was create a catchy phrase with a great logo. This is where the agency's creative genius shines. They combined the popular phrase "hear our roar" with "never say die". This became the Toronto Raptors' official motto.
