Following a slow start to begin the year, Raptors Uprising GC found their identity down the stretch and become one of the strongest teams in the league down the stretch. Sitting at 1-5 with their backs against the wall, Toronto strung together seven wins in their last eight games, including four in a row to end the regular season. Raptors Uprising would clinch the No. 4 seed in the playoffs behind an 8-6 overall record. However, their season came to an end in the first round as Cavs Legion GC knocked them off.
With Season 2 looming, Raptors Uprising has plenty to be optimistic about as key stars Kenny and All Hail Trey are back. One of the most dominant and consistent players in the entire league, Kenny put up impressive numbers averaging 18.3 points and 8.3 assists. All Hail Trey improved as the season went on and capped off his first year with 14.4 points and 3.5 boards per game. Collectively, the duo provides a strong foundation for Raptors Uprising GC before the 2019 draft.
