Raptors Can Set A Toronto Pro Sports Record This Season

In this month’s issue of The Potent Lifestyle Magazine, Pro Bball Report discusses the Toronto pro sports team record the Raptors can accomplish this season that not even the Toronto Maple Leafs have managed to reach in a century of action.

A relative newcomer to the Toronto sports scene via the NBA, the Raptors are entering their 23rd season. The MLB Blue Jays have been around for over 40 years and the NHL’s Maple Leafs started out as the Toronto Arenas in 1917. However, neither of these two more storied franchises have been able to achieve what the Raptors seem certain to get done this season.

The Blue Jays only managed to win over 60 percent of their games in a season once when they went 99-62 way back in 1985.

The Maple Leafs had back-to-back seasons winning over 60 percent  in 1933-34 and 1934-35, did it again in 1946-47 and 1947-48, and again in 1960-61 and 1961-62.

The Raptors have a chance for 50-plus wins/ a winning percentage over 60/ in back-to-back-to back seasons this year to hold a record not even Leafs have been to achieve in five-times as long.
