I've been a fan since they started saying they were trying to get a team. I remember how excited I was about it even before we got the team, the bids and attempts.. I think it was David Peterson initially leading the charge before Bitove Jr's team eventually won a franchise. He was a former MP or something like that. He later on led the charge for the Olympics but we lost that one.
My first NBA game was an exhibition game, it was around the time when Larry Bird was already having back problems. I remember this specifically because we of course wanted to see him play but he didn't.. not even sure he traveled with the team.
My first ever Raptors game was the 3rd home game of the season against the Phoenix Suns. I remember being super excited to see a superstar in Kevin Johnson, only to hear that he wasn't going to be playing.. injury or something. But I did get to see Damon play and he was awesome.
Kudos to those who went to games 2001 and earlier. It sure wouldve been nice to see them back then.
I have bean a fan since 1994.
It started of badly.
Name was a disappointment.
Uniforms were disappointment.
Announcement that we can not have the No.1 pick even if we win the lottery.
Expansion draft was not only disappointing but ridiculous.
Drafting Stoudamire is when things started changing.
