Toronto Raptors are the only Canadian-based franchise in the league. They joined the NBA back in 1995 and they play in the Eastern Conference. The interesting part about the Raptors is their journey has been filled with many ups and downs. When they first joined the league they struggled heavily, and it took them four years before they finally found the winning formula. Led by Vince Carter, the Raptors made many playoffs appearances, but never made any real damage and thus remained as a team that had plenty of potential but never amounted to anything that was worth mentioning. After Vince Carter was no longer part of the Raptors they went through another period of rebuilding, and they had to wait another four years to get a player like Chris Bosh in their line up. However, Chris Bosh left the team in 2010 to join the Miami Heat and the Raptors were once again struggling. Things wouldn’t continue like this since, they managed to form a great duo in Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, that had great success but were never great in the playoffs. For this reason, the front office of the Raptors decided to trade DeRozan for Kawhi Leonard of the Spurs, in order to give them a boost.
