Raptors take out full-page newspaper ad thanking fans for All-Star success (PHOTO)


The just-wrapped All-Star Weekend in Toronto was the NBA’s first time holding the event outside of the United States, and coincided with the Raptors’ 20th anniversary as a team. By all accounts, the weekend was a success (and having been there, I can attest to this), and Raptors GM Masai Ujiri took out a full-page ad in the Toronto Star thanking fans for making it so.

The Raptors are in a good place right now, as the second-best team in the Eastern Conference and an increasingly attractive destination for free agents. The successful All-Star Weekend will only add to their standing in league circles.
