In defeating the Milwaukee Bucks in the Eastern Conference Finals, the Toronto Raptors advanced to the Finals for the first time in franchise history. However, even though the Raptors don't have any experience on the NBA's biggest stage, several of their players do.

Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Serge Ibaka and Patrick McCaw are four of just 58 players currently in the NBA who have appeared in the Finals before. Of those 58, 39 have a championship ring, with Leonard and Green each winning one as members of the San Antonio Spurs and McCaw winning two as a member of the Golden State Warriors.

The four of them give the Raptors more Finals experience than any other team in the Eastern Conference when looking at games and minutes played.

The Warriors, on the other hand, have the most Finals experience in the league. That's what happens when you make five straight trips to the Finals with almost the same roster each time.

With that in mind, here are the 58 active players who have played in the Finals before, broken down by team...
