Are the Raptors profitable?

David stern says that half the teams are profitable.A league executive claims that only 5-7 Teams are profitable.My question here is,are the Raptors one of them.I'm guessing that the possible 10 teams that are profitable are:

Lakers
Pistons
Celtics
Knicks?
Bulls
Suns
Cavs
Spurs
Mavs
Raptors

(I'm thinking that there probably are 15 profitable teams)

raps are profitable.

high attendance, properly managed payroll, great television contracts, rabid fans buying merch.

Trust, they earn, Pimp Daddy MLSE don't turn out no Ho that don't earn!

The drop in the dollar cannot be good. There goes the impetus to pay a bit of tax.

The skinny
The Raptors play second fiddle to the Maple Leafs in Toronto, but it's the hoops team that made the playoffs last season and not the skaters. The Raptors won a division title last year for the first time since entering the NBA in 1995 led by rising star Chris Bosh. The team's win total surged by 20 and the accolades followed for Sam Mitchell (Coach of the Year) and Bryan Colangelo (Executive of the Year). The Raptors are part of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, which also owns the NHL's Maple Leafs and Air Canada Centre and is among the most lucrative enterprises in professional sports.


pretty much explains the Raptor situation. Making cash, maintaining satus quo. Safe. Profitable, unsuccessful.

MLSE paradise.

nice link - lots of good signs except the huge debt - not sure if that's for the whole organization (MLSE), or just the Raptors division. I would guess that the Raptors are structured as a separate entity under the MLSE umbrella - but that kind of begs the question why did they borrow so much ...
