    Look at the logo for 2004/05 season, it says 10th year anniversary

    The first year the Raptors played was 1995-96.

    I have a feeling that in 2004/2005 the 10th year celebrations feel under such sales campaign pushes as Young Gunz/Onez. They were heading in to a sh!tty year and needed to hype something.

    And CRF birthday nails it.

    You are right though.

    except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.

    its 10th year, because that's the season the front office & Business work started including the 1995 draft, and i guess the team existed on paper. But the first season played is the 1995-1996. Which will be 20th Anniversary.

    All you guys looking to avoid it are nuts. I'm gonna be fighting to get tickets to both the events and the game. It's basically once in a lifetime event.

    Wow ... well there goes Doug Smith's long standing opinion that Toronto will never get the ASG, because it's somehow not suited to host it .... Idiot. Lol

    This is absolutely amazing news, and proof that TL is a man of his word and gets things done.
    Maybe we can ban him from game! Lol.

    Great news to start the day! Never thought we would see an All Star game. So jazzed at the idea of seeing all those great players in one spot.

    Why is it no longer an issue then? Its not like a Convention Center has suddenly opened up.
    I never really bought into that argument .. The Metro Toronto Convention Center is literally just up the street from the ACC... and its massive. And I believe the Ritz and the Marriot are both connected to the MTCC, with the Royal York hotel right across the street.

    That argument from Doug just never made sense to me.
    Perhaps its legit, but I'm not sure why that would've changed under TL.
    It might have more to do with TL's clout and the timing does tie into the completion of the Union Station renovation and improved Pathway.

    Or my theory: that was always the BS excuse the NBA gave Toronto when they've asked for it.

    Yup, I'll be doing everything in my power to get tickets. If not for the game, at least the Saturday events.

    Put it this way: In 2016, the Raptors will be celebrating 20 completed seasons.

    One can only assume this means toronto will be mysteriously lucky and winning the lottery this year so they can draft Wiggans. Its finally Toronto's turn!
