Default Report:Toronto Raptors Season Ticket Renewal Record High

According to a report in the Toronto Star 98 percent of Raptors season ticket-holders have renewed this off-season, which ranks tops in NBA history.

I thought Hockey was the sport in Canada, but man do they love their hoops!

We all know the Raptor franchise has a large following on the Web, its been publicized and mentioned in interviews; still im surprised by the amount of support this team gets even after just one optimistic season.

They haven’t seen these type number of total season ticket sales since height of the hoops craze up north, back with Carter.

Congratulations Toronto, I may get annoyed by alot of your fans but even I got to applaud that kind of dedication!!!

Toronto has always supported a winner... even when they're not winning, they remain in the middle of the pack... look at the bluejays as an example... when the jays were a playoff contending team - fans showed up - there were 50,000 in the stands every night... nowadays, they aren't bad, but they're not playoff worthy, but are still in the middle of the pack in attendance...

Sadly for them, Raptors might not even make the playoffs this year.

I'm not surprised that Toronto fans renewed - the team put a great product on the floor last year, and has a lot to be hopeful for this year.

Yes I agree cause there so much worse then last years team, theyll be lucky to finish ahead of Atlanta and the Sixers.

Getting the top 3 pt shooter in the game and some really good roleplayers along with the playoff experience they gained wont help them this year.

Not surprising. AFter all, all of Canada has exactly one NBA team to look forward to in basketball, and considering their successful season last year they have very good reasons to be optimistic.
