2 0

To honour the team for a record setting season and playoff run that captivated the city, Deputy Mayor Norm Kelly proclaimed Monday as Raptors Day in Toronto.

Kelly says the team served as an inspiration to Toronto during the first round of the NBA playoffs and the regular season, which saw the team set a franchise record with 48 wins.

"The Raptors were Toronto," said Kelly, honouring the NBA's 2013-2014 Atlantic Division champions.

 Fans say the Raptors season is worth celebrating, even though the squad bowed out in the first round.

"It's not saying...we are accepting just making the playoffs," said Coach Dwayne Casey.

"I think they (the city) were trying to say 'congratulations on the first step'...you've got to start somewhere and that's what these young men have done...started the process."

    I wonder what the raptors would get if they actually won the championship.

    This just goes to show the hunger for some sort of championship in this town:
    *Toronto Raptors are getting closer
    *Toronto Maple Leafs probably a lost cause
    *Toronto FC getting better
    *My beloved Toronto Blue Jays....two decades since a World Series Championship *sob*
