Playing in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference, the Toronto Raptors are the only NBA team currently located outside of the United States. Founded as an expansion team in 1995, the Raptors played home games in the recently renamed Skydome before moving to their current home since 1999, the Air Canada Centre.
Like most expansion teams, the Raptors faced challenges early on, but after a few great draft selections, like Vince Carter and Chris Bosh, the Raptors’ success skyrocketed, advancing to three consecutive playoffs and a Conference Semifinals. After a few slow seasons after the departures of two key players, the Raptors have assembled a star-studded team loaded with untapped talent. Players like Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan and DeMare Carroll all have unbelievably bright futures ahead of them and will surely lead the Toronto Raptors to their long-awaited return to dominance.
