Kyle Lowry selected as NBA All Star starter

Posted by Derek Flack / January 23, 2015

Toronto Raptors worth $400 million more than last year

Posted by Derek Flack / January 21, 2015

Toronto RaptorsThe Toronto Raptors stock is on the rise in more ways than one. While the team is enjoying a successful campaign on the hardcourt this season, a trip to the playoffs last year and some very savvy marketing on the part of MLSE has witnessed a dramatic increase in the worth of the franchise, at least if you believe Forbes annual rankings of NBA teams.
