Founded in 1995 the Toronto Raptors are Canada's lone team in the National Basketball Association. Since their inception, the Raptors have been a member of the leagues Eastern Conference and play their home games at the Scotiabank Arena.
In their history, the team has won 6 Atlantic Division titles and been led by numerous current and former NBA stars such as Damon Stoudamire, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Chris Bosh, Kyle Lowry, and DeMar DeRozan.
Following the conclusion of the 2018 NBA Season, the Raptors would make a bold move in acquiring superstar guard Kwahi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs in exchange for fan favorite DeMar DeRozan. This off-season move would pace the Raptors to the 2nd best regular season in franchise history (58 Wins - 24 Losses) and the teams first ever NBA Finals appearance against the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors.
The Raptors would dethrone the mighty Golden State Warriors in six games to capture the franchises first ever NBA Championship earning them the coveted title of 2019 NBA Champions!_x000D_
