Last year, the Toronto Raptors didn’t repeat, but we watched the champs get their rings and uncover the championship banner in Toronto. This was THE moment. Although The Raptors 2020-21 season was underwhelming, marked by COVID-19 related issues, injury, and unpredictability, the team still put on some grand performances.
The Raptors showed that when COVID-19 wasn’t completely derailing their momentum and flow this season, they can still play well against some of the best teams in the game. If only they were allowed to play in Canada.
