According to the Toronto Sun, the Leaf's are no longer Canada's most valuable franchise. The Toronto Raptors are officially the new number one franchise worth a whopping $2.2 billion dollars that's a growth of over 400% the past 10 years.

The Raptors growth is mainly contributed due to their recent playoff success, and them winning the 2018-19 NBA championship.
