Toronto Raptors

Bursting into the NBA world in 1995 as part of the league’s growth, Toronto travelled the same road as many expansion teams during its first few years: by sucking.

After early progression, the city started to get behind the Raptors when Vince Carter became half-man, half-amazing and dominated one of the greatest All Star Slam Dunk contests of all time. While he left shortly after, the seed was planted and a love of basketball blossomed and remained in Canada.

In 2019 the Raptors won their first championship and millions attended the championship parade.
