The 2003-04 NBA season was the Raptors' ninth season in the National Basketball Association.[1] This season saw the team draft future All-Star forward Chris Bosh with the fourth overall pick in the 2003 NBA draft. With new head coach Kevin O'Neill, the Raptors started the season on a high note beating the 2-time Eastern Conference Champion New Jersey Nets 90-87. However, a few days later they would set an embarrassing post shot clock record by scoring just 56 points in a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. After the first month of the season, they traded Antonio Davis and Jerome Williams to the Chicago Bulls for Jalen Rose and Donyell Marshall. The Raptors posted a 25-25 record at the All-Star break, but because of injuries, they only won just eight for the rest of the season. The team also posted nine and seven-game losing streaks respectively, finishing sixth in the Central Division with a 33-49 record.

Following the season, O'Neil and General Manager Glen Grunwald were fired by the Raptors.[2] This was also Vince Carter's final full season in Toronto, as he would be traded to the New Jersey Nets midway through next season. He was also selected for the 2004 NBA All-Star Game.
