The Toronto Raptors are known to have a passionate fanbase backed by the whole country of Canada.
The Raptors definitely have a massive fanbase and Jurassic Park has become a staple of the franchise.
In general, when it comes to sports, fans view it as an outlet from their daily lives. People are passionate about the sports they like, specifically basketball, as there are millions of fans all over the world.
Everyone wants their respective team to do well and see them succeed, but sometimes that is not the case. NBA teams usually have their down years or rebuilding eras, which don’t feature a whole lot of winning.
For the Raptors, fans are used to being a competitive team and consistently being in the postseason. But, the 2022-23 season was filled with inconsistency and mediocrity.
Now, Toronto has struggled to find a groove consistently falling behind by double digits. Currently at 6-8, staring at 6-9, things can get ugly fast.
A study was conducted by Betway to see which NBA fanbase features the most vulgar fans. Raptors fans were the second most vulgar online in the NBA over the last four years.
The study focused on NBA team’s subreddit posts, which serve as a forum for fans to talk amongst one another to discuss the state of their team. It seems that Raptors fans are growing restless with the recent lack of success from the team.
It may be hard to stay positive during lulls of the NBA season, but Toronto has only played 14 games, so there is still time.
However, the front office is going to have to make a decision to either retool the roster or blow it up and rebuild.

Heading into the 2023-24 season, Pascal Siakam and O.G. Anunoby are in the final year of their contracts.
Toronto is going to have to decide if they want to break the bank to pay both of them or ship them at the trade deadline.
It seems that the Sacramento Kings are a potential suitor for both of the forwards.
