The 2001-02 Toronto Raptors season was the Raptors' 7th season in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Raptors qualified for the postseason for the third time in franchise history. Before the season, the team acquired 2-time NBA Champion Hakeem Olajuwon from the Houston Rockets. This was Olajuwon's only season in Toronto and his last in the NBA. During the season, All-Star Vince Carter struggled with injuries and only managed to play 60 games. Despite injuries, Carter was still voted to play in the All-Star game for the third consecutive year, but he did not play in the All-Star game due to injury. Despite losing their team captain for the rest of season and the playoffs, the Raptors still managed to clinch a playoff spot behind the efforts of their other All-Star captain Antonio Davis. Toronto's season ended in the first round with a heartbreaking defeat to the Detroit Pistons in five hard fought games.
