The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The team was established in 1995, as part of the NBA’s expansion into Canada, and quickly became a significant player in the league. The Raptors made history in the 2018-2019 season by winning their first NBA Championship, making them the only non-American team to achieve this feat.
