Toronto Raptors 2024 NBA Championship Odds

Since their improbable and stunning 2019 NBA championship, the Toronto Raptors have not been a serious threat for the Lawrence O’Brien Trophy. Toronto has missed the playoffs in two of the previous three seasons and is almost certain to be on the outside looking in come April. A few days after Toronto won its only NBA title, marquee man Kawhi Leonard bailed for the LA Clippers. Sure, Leonard was going back to his hometown for a huge payday. But it was also indicative of the fact that nobody really wants to play in Toronto and deal with its cold climate and excessive taxes. Nick Nurse, the best coach in franchise history, was cut loose last year despite keeping the Raps competitive. Now, they are losers on the hardwood and at the payout window.

On defense, the Raptors have NBA metrics of 18th for scoring defense, 22nd for field goal percentage permitted, 22nd for 3-point field goal percentage allowed, and 17th for defensive rebounding.

The transition from former head coach Nick Nurse has been difficult. But the bigger problem is that Toronto lacks quality depth, players, and a marquee man. This season, the roster has been a revolving door.

Toronto Raptors History

Unlike the other Canadian expansion team, the Toronto Raptors have thrived in the Great White North. While the Vancouver Grizzlies left Canada after six mediocre seasons, the Toronto Raptors have truly become Canada’s Team, and we saw the whole country erupt in celebration when they won the 2019 NBA Finals.

Toronto had two of the most exciting players in the league in the 1990s. The Raptors had Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady, and it looked like they could become a force to be reckoned with in the league. However, McGrady left for Orlando after just two seasons, leading to one of the biggest sliding doors moments in the NBA.

Franchise hero Kyle Lowry joined Toronto in 2012 and teamed up with DeMar DeRozan to make the Raptors a reliable playoff team. Toronto won 48 games or more for seven straight seasons, and the Raptors went for broke in the summer of 2018. The Raptors dealt DeRozan, Jakob Poeltl, and a first-round pick to the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard, as Masai Ujiri saw that this was the best way for Toronto to win the title. Although Leonard only spent one year with the Raptors, he did lead the franchise to their first NBA championship, and he will always hold a special place in the heart of fans.
