The Toronto Raptors are the only NBA basketball team based in Canada. They are part of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. The team was established in 1995, along with the Vancouver Grizzlies, as part of the NBA's expansion into Canada. When the Grizzlies relocated to Memphis, Tennessee in 2001, the Raptors became the only Canadian team in the NBA. They originally played their home games in the SkyDome, before moving to the Air Canada Centre (ACC) in 1999.
Though many on the Urban Dictionary website purport the team to "suck", their supposed lack of success is put into question with the capturing of the 2006-07 Atlantic Division title.
Following the success of the 2006–07 season, Toronto became one of the league leaders in season ticket sales for the 2007–08 season, and their fanbase remains one of the most consistent in the NBA.
