The Toronto Raptors are a professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Raptors were founded in 1995, when the NBA expanded to Canada, with another team formed in Vancouver, British Columbia, the Vancouver Grizzlies. The Grizzlies moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 2001, leaving the Raptors as the only Canadian NBA team. The Raptors have enjoyed more economic success than the Grizzlies, building a reputation for sellout crowds, and in 2019 became the first non-American franchise to play in the NBA Finals championship series, which they won by defeating the Golden State Warriors, four games to two.

The Raptors play in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference at the Air Canada Centre, also the home of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
