Welcome, Peroti.

Can I ask why you are a fan of the Raptors? Some kind of connection to Canada, or perhaps a favorite player?

Just wondering!

Thank you!

Well no, I have no connection to Canada but when I started playing basketball in 1999 I loved Vince Carter so Raptors just happend to be the team I started following. And when Carter left I thought "Man, do I have to change my favourite team now?". But as I thought that I heard how silly it sounded. I could never change my favourite team and ever since that day when i realized that my love for the Raptors has been growing. :)

Add anything else about yourself, too.

Until Lacrosse came to Edmonton in 2006, I was pretty much a hockey only guy but the sport of lacrosse has changed my sporting tastes completely.
In 2008 when I began to work in the Rush office, I became a student of the game of lacrosse and that love and knowledge translates so well into NBA Basketball that I began watching B-Ball instead of boring hockey.

Last season, I watched at least a Raptor game a week and caught quarters here and there of non-Raptor games. Joining the boards to further my self-education of basketball.

I've been a fan of the Raptors since their inception and a fan of the Celtics since I can remember. I'm a short road trip from Boston and have been to many games over the years.

Growing up I also liked watching Reggie Miller and the Pacers. They played some hard nosed basketball and had some great playoff series. Walsh put together a couple great teams. It's kind of ironic that he is with the Knicks now.

I Started watching the NBA when i was like 10 years old, and got obsessed with it. when i first started watching the raptors were really bad they won 27 games all year i was hoping they made the playoffs that i watched every game. After they won they 47 games i stopped watching them as much instead i am a hawks now.

I never did this since I started posting here, so I guess I'll give a go

Name: David
Age: 24
Married?: Single
Occupation: College Bookstore Clerk/Cashier
Jerseys Owned: Used to have a few but they got too small. I had a Baron Davis Hornets Road, Tim Duncan Road, Vince Carter Road Purple, Vince Carter Road Red, Mike Bibby Royals Throwback, Quentin Richardson Clippers Road Blue, Robert Horry Lakers Home White, Robert Horry Lakers Road Purple
Favourite TV Show: South Park
Favourite Food: Mexican
Favourite Band/Musician: Don't really have one
Favourite Raptors Moment: The playoff run in 2001, the 2006/07 season
Favourite Current Raptor: Demar Derozan
Favourite All Time Raptor: Even though he wasn't here very long, probably Charles Oakley. Maybe JYD or Keon Clark.

Anything else about yourself:

I first became a fan of the Raptors in 1999. I was one of those fans who kind of lost interest in the NBA once MJ retired because I was a dumb kid. I realized how stupid that was since basketball is my passion and I loved the NBA. I wasn't a fan of any team in particular, and I thought the Raptors had the coolest name and logo/mascot. I think subconsciously I was attracted by Vince Carter, because of the comparisons he started drawing to Jordan. I was hooked and have been a fan ever since.

No way you share a name with a Raptor now. How cool is that. Nice taste in music btw. Will you be coping the new Yeezy album coming out next month?

I got so bored I was reading this thread
