Local Advertisement. Sports Highlights. November 30, Toronto Raptors. November 26, Toronto Raptors. The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto.
Since the —02 season , the Raptors have been the only Canadian-based team in the league, as the Grizzlies relocated from Vancouver to Memphis, Tennessee.
As with most expansion teams, the Raptors struggled in their early years, but after the acquisition of Vince Carter through a draft-day trade in , the franchise set league-attendance records and made the NBA playoffs in , , and Carter was instrumental in leading the team to their first playoff series win in , where they advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
During the —03 and —04 seasons , they failed to make significant progress, and Carter was traded in to the New Jersey Nets. After Carter left, Chris Bosh emerged as the team leader.
For the —07 season , Bryan Colangelo was appointed as general manager, and through a combination of Bosh, first overall draft pick Andrea Bargnani , and a revamp of the roster, the Raptors qualified for their first playoff berth in five years , capturing the Atlantic Division title.
In the —08 season , they also advanced to the playoffs but failed to reach the postseason in each of the next five seasons.
Colangelo overhauled the team's roster for the —10 season in a bid to persuade pending free agent Bosh to stay, but Bosh departed to sign with the Miami Heat in July , ushering in yet another era of rebuilding for the Raptors.
The Raptors returned to the playoffs the following year and became a consistent playoff team in every year of Ujiri's tenure. Under Ujiri, the team also won five Division titles and registered their most successful regular season in However, the team's failure to reach the NBA Finals prompted Ujiri to fire head coach Dwane Casey after the playoffs concluded and conduct the high-profile trade of DeRozan for Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green later that summer, as well as acquiring Marc Gasol before the trade deadline.
Toronto did not host another NBA game until the s, when the Buffalo Braves played a total of 16 regular season games at Maple Leaf Gardens from to Interest to move or expand an NBA franchise to Toronto grew during the s.
Although the logistics and costs associated with basing a team in Canada were often thought of as deterrents for Canadian expansion by American-based sports leagues; the size of Toronto's media market made its potential difficult to ignore.
The NBA organized two exhibition games in and with an attendance of over 25, people each, both in the newly built SkyDome. PBF formally submitted an application for a Toronto-based team, one of three groups seeking the rights to the franchise.
Also in the running were Maple Leaf Garden Ltd. Later that year, in July, the NBA Expansion Committee visited various existing and proposed stadium sites along with the bid contenders.
On September 30, , the committee recommended conditionally awarding PBF the franchise. Initial sentiment was in favour of reviving the Huskies nickname, but team management realized it would be nearly impossible to design a logo that did not substantially resemble that of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The name "Raptor" is a common informal name for the Velociraptor , a swift medium-sized dromaeosaurid theropod non-avian dinosaur. On May 24, , the team's logo and first general manager, Isiah Thomas , were revealed at a press conference.
As general manager, Isiah Thomas quickly staffed the management positions with his own personnel, naming long-time Detroit Pistons assistant Brendan Malone as the Raptors' head coach.
Following a coin flip , Toronto was given first choice and selected Chicago Bulls point guard and three-point specialist B.
Armstrong refused to report for training, and Thomas promptly traded him to the Golden State Warriors for power forwards Carlos Rogers and Victor Alexander.
Subsequent to the expansion draft, the Raptors landed the seventh pick in the NBA draft lottery , behind their fellow expansion club, the Vancouver Grizzlies.
Thomas selected Damon Stoudamire , a point guard out of Arizona , around whom the franchise would seek to construct its near future.
With averages of In the —98 season , the team suffered numerous injuries and slid into a game losing streak.
Kevin Willis , another veteran acquired from the trade, solidified the centre position, while the coaching staff temporarily rotated Brown, Williams and Doug Christie to play point guard.
Both Christie and Williams became talented players in their own right; Christie developed into one of the elite defenders in the NBA,  while Williams improved his play on the offensive end.
New coach Butch Carter was also credited with much of the team's turnaround during the lockout-shortened —99 season.
Although the team did not make the playoffs , many were optimistic with the impressive performances of Rookie of the Year Carter  and a much improved McGrady.
During the NBA draft , believing that the Raptors still lacked a strong frontcourt presence, Grunwald traded first-round draft pick Jonathan Bender for power forward Antonio Davis of the Indiana Pacers.
Davis quickly entered the Raptors starting lineup and he would develop into an All-Star in the coming years. Conversely, Bender would only play nine seasons and would be out of the league by age The rotation of Davis, Oakley and Willis in the frontcourt and Carter's and McGrady's improvement helped the team make its first ever playoff appearance, fulfilling a promise Carter had made to fans in the previous season.
The season was also the first full year played at the Air Canada Centre, after having played four years at the cavernous SkyDome, which was better suited to baseball and Canadian football.
Still, playoff failures and Butch Carter's media altercations surrounding Camby led Grunwald to replace Carter prior to the —01 season with Lenny Wilkens , a Hall of Fame coach and player with more than 30 years of coaching experience.
As predicted by analysts, the team easily secured a berth in the NBA playoffs with a franchise-high 47 wins. The Raptors won their first ever playoff series as they defeated New York 3—2, advancing to the Eastern Conference Semifinals for the first time in franchise history.
The series with Philadelphia 76ers was a landmark for the Raptors in terms of performance and entertainment value. The Sixers relied on Allen Iverson and Dikembe Mutombo for their respective offensive and defensive abilities, along with steady help from Aaron McKie.
Toronto was the more balanced team with Carter, Alvin Williams and Davis providing much of the offensive game and Chris Childs and Jerome Williams on defence.
The series came down to the last few seconds of Game 7, when Carter's potential series-winning shot rolled off the rim.
Despite Toronto's improved defensive performances, Carter's offence was sorely missed in the first-round series against the second-seeded Detroit Pistons.
In the first game, Detroit overwhelmed Toronto 83—65, largely due to Ben Wallace 's strong performance of 19 points, 20 rebounds , 3 blocks and 3 steals.
In a post-game locker room interview, Childs repeatedly insisted that the Raptors had been down four points, not three.
The Raptors' late-season surge was thus marred by a disappointing playoff exit; the Olajuwon experiment was also a bust, with the year-old averaging career lows in minutes, points and rebounds.
The —03 season began with the same optimism that the Raptors exhibited in three consecutive playoff seasons, although it faded early.
Carter, while voted as a starter in the All-Star Game ,  suffered a knee injury, while Davis expressed disinterest in Toronto and Wilkens' laissez-faire attitude created a team that lacked the motivation and spirit of the previous years' teams.
The team was ravaged with injuries, losing an NBA record number of player games due to injury. The Raptors ended the season with a 24—58 record  and Wilkens was fired.
This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, when the Raptors were given the 4th overall pick in the NBA draft and brought another star to Toronto in Chris Bosh.
Canadian country singer Shania Twain helped launch the new red Raptors alternate road uniform at the start of the —04 season ,  and the jerseys made their debut in a 90—87 season-opening victory on October 29, against the defending Conference Champion New Jersey Nets.
After 50 games, Toronto was 25—25 and in a position to make the playoffs , but injuries to key players sent the Raptors plummeting down the standings.
Rose, Carter and Alvin Williams all suffered injuries as the Raptors struggled to a record of 8—24 in their remaining games. For the —05 season , the team moved into the Atlantic Division and the Raptors decided to revamp the team.
Toronto interim manager Jack McCloskey said: "While the blame for that certainly does not rest on O'Neill and his staff alone, we need a change.
After Vince Carter's annual charity game, Babcock implicitly revealed to the media that Carter's agent had asked for a trade, confirming Carter's discontent.
The Toronto Sun reported that Carter felt he was being misled by the Raptors' hierarchy during the general manager search and had concluded that as long as the managerial structure at Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd.
Eric and Aaron Williams were supposed to add defensive toughness and rebounding, but were generally under-utilized for the entire season. Analysts had predicted Babcock got the bad end of the deal,  and the trade eventually cost him his job.
Carter's departure heralded a new era for Toronto. Bosh stepped up to the role of franchise player  and performed well in his sophomore campaign, ranking tenth in the league in defensive rebounds.
Additionally, Mitchell had problems dealing with Alston, who openly expressed his unhappiness with Mitchell in a post-game interview. Despite the infusion of new players, Toronto's overall —06 season was a disappointment; they set a franchise record by losing their first nine games  and 15 out of their first 16 games.
On January 15, , the Raptors set a franchise points record in a — win over the Knicks when Villanueva hit a three-pointer late in the game.
The —06 season was not a total disaster. Villanueva's play impressed both fans and former critics as he came in second in NBA Rookie of the Year  and recorded 48 points in an overtime loss to Milwaukee Bucks, the most points scored by any rookie in franchise history and the most by a rookie in the NBA since Still, Toronto ended the season weakly when Bosh suffered a season-ending thumb injury.
The —07 season represented a watershed year for the Raptors franchise. The roster was overhauled, including the selection of NBA draft number one pick Andrea Bargnani , the acquisition of point guard T.
Ford in exchange for Villanueva, and the signing of shooting guard Anthony Parker and small forward Jorge Garbajosa. The first half of the season produced mixed results as Toronto struggled towards the.
On April 24, , the Raptors won their first playoff game in five seasons, with an 89—83 victory over the New Jersey Nets,  but lost the series 4—2.
The Nets took home court advantage in Game 1, holding off a late Raptors rally in the fourth quarter. The Raptors pulled away in another tight game to even the series at one game apiece.
When the series shifted to New Jersey , the Nets took charge of the series, winning Games 3 and 4 in routs. New Jersey had a chance to win the series in game 5 in Toronto, but the Raptors took a point lead after one quarter.
Needing to win in New Jersey to force a game 7, Toronto held a one-point lead with under a minute to play in game 6, but Richard Jefferson hit a layup with eight seconds left to play.
Toronto attempted to try for the game-winning shot, but Jefferson intercepted a pass to seal the series for the Nets.
Several changes to the roster were made before the —08 campaign as Toronto sought to reproduce the same form as the previous campaign.
Most notably, the Raptors acquired Carlos Delfino in a trade with Detroit for two second round draft picks,  and signed Jamario Moon  and three-point specialist Jason Kapono as free agents.
The Raptors finished , six fewer wins than the previous season, but still good enough for a playoff spot as the 6th seed. They were pitted against Dwight Howard and the resurgent Orlando Magic.
In Game 1, Dwight Howard gave the Magic their first playoff win since as they practically led the entire game. However, Jameer Nelson , Rashard Lewis and Keith Bogans keyed strong three point shooting in Game 4 and overcame Bosh's 39 points and 15 rebounds to bring the Magic out of Toronto with a 3—1 lead.
Howard would finish off the series in Game 5 as impressively as he started: 21 points, 21 rebounds, 3 blocks. Weaknesses in Toronto's game—rebounding, defence, and a lack of a swingman—were brought into sharp focus during the playoffs, and changes were expected to be made to the roster.
The Raptors also introduced a black alternate road jersey for the season similar to the earlier purple design that was dropped a few seasons ago.
It had a maple leaf featured on the back neck of the jersey, symbolizing the Raptors as "Canada's team". Following an 8—9 start to the season, Mitchell was fired and replaced by long-time assistant Jay Triano.
O'Neal and Moon were then traded to Miami for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks ,  but with the losses mounting, the Raptors soon fell out of the playoffs picture and were eliminated from contention with seven games of the regular season remaining.
On May 12, , Triano was given a three-year term for the position of head coach. The inevitable roster shakeup for the —10 season began when Kapono was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for the aggressive veteran forward Reggie Evans.
Before the —11 season began, there was much anticipation around the league over the fates of an elite pack of free agents, featuring the likes of Bosh, Dwyane Wade , LeBron James , and Amar'e Stoudemire.
Bosh and James eventually chose to converge in Miami with Wade, and the sign-and-trade transaction that ensued resulted in the Raptors receiving two first-round draft picks and a trade exception from Miami.
