Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors are an expert basket-ball group situated in Toronto, Ontario, that plays in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Since its establishing in 1995, the group has won four division titles and made the playoffs eight circumstances. After the Vancouver Grizzlies moved to Memphis in 2001, the Raptors turned into the main Canadian group in the NBA. The Toronto Raptors were one of two extension groups that joined the NBA for the 1995–96 NBA season, the second being another Canadian establishment, the Vancouver Grizzlies. It was a major stride for the NBA, as the move denoted the first occasion when that the league extended past the United States.

Connection

The Toronto Raptors are my favorite team in the NBA because it not only represents Toronto, it represents all of Canada. The Raptors are the only professional basketball team in all of Canada. The Raptors give us a feeling of independence and pride.
