In the early days of its founding, the Raptors faced some difficulties like other newly expanded NBA teams, and signed Vince Carter in the 1998 NBA Draft to reverse this situation. Under Vince Carter's leadership, the Raptors reached the playoffs for three consecutive seasons in 2000, 2001, and 2002 , including the Eastern Conference semifinals for the first time in the 2001 playoffs. In the 2002-2004 season, the Raptors had no significant record. Vince Carter was traded to the Brooklyn Nets in 2004 . Our NBA Team Logo Face Coverings Store has the most comfortable Toronto Raptors sports face coverings.
