Canada's lone NBA team. Not always a success on the court, but always a fiasco off of it. Has some of the best fans in sports, but often is disrespected by both American and Canadian media members who couldn't find their ass with both hands. Finally rid themselves of the cancer known as Vince Carter. God's basketball team along with Syracuse.
"The Toronto Raptors are going to be contenders for the next decade. Book it."

"People who disrespect the Toronto Raptors know nothing. They are either out-of-the-loop Americans or clueless Canadians who love hockey so much they have wet dreams about Pierre McGuire."

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.
Dude: See that Toronto Raptors game last night?
Other dude: Yeah man! That dunk by Bosh (over Wallace) was sick, wicked, and nasty!

A team in desperate need of a new change and direction next season.

Some changes -> First off, get rid of players who don't wanna play in Toronto (like what they did to Vince Carter). Players including Jalen Rose (who's overpaid for inconsistent offence and lack of defense), Rafer Alston, Lamond Murray, Aaron Williams, and while you're at it, waive useless players like Loren Woods, Pape Sow, Eric Williams, and Milt Palacio.
Then sign some other players who will actually play some team-d and give their all cuz the Raptors are reekin' now i tell ya. i'm disgusted to be a raptors fan...
Atlanta Hawks, Charlotte Bobcats, New Orleans Hornets, and all other crap teams: "Man, I sure hope we play the Raptors soon 'cause u know it's always gonna be a winnable game wit em."

Canada's only basketball team. They suck major ass and make everyone who wears a Chris Bosh jersey look like a fag.

Canadian NBA team; were really good a couple years ago, but now Vince Carter's always hurt and they suck
The Raptors have Vince Carter. He's usually on the bench in pain.
