    Default Top 10 greatest Raptors of all time??

    1. Vince Carter
    2. Chris Bosh
    3. Damon Stoudamire
    4. Jose Calderon
    5. Antonio Davis
    6. Morris Peterson
    7. Doug Christie
    8. Andrea Bargnani
    9. Alvin Williams
    10. DeMar DeRozan

    Thoughts?

    Note: I didn't include McGrady, Oakley and Camby because they weren't around very long.

    Also, I think Rudy Gay and Jonas Valanciunas will on the top 5 list one day.

    At least start the thread off with a list of criteria, as these discussions always wind up in arguments over what "greatest" means and/or "Raptor player" means...

    I think Vince Carter deserves to be the greatest just for putting us on the map. Thousands of people across North America started watching basketball because of him.

    Agree 100000%. VC would be 1st in my list too.

    I limited my list only to players that actually wanted to be in Toronto.

    Not a bad list, but Bargnani? That makes me feel like I should find another team to cheer for if, since the teams inception, Bargnani is actually one of the top ten Raptors of all time. Amir, Demar, and Gay already deserve to be there more than Bargs. Hell, Pat Ewing deserves to be there more, and he didn't even report lol.

    I honestly have a difficult time coming up with 10 players worthy of being in a "top 10 list". Even my #7 is not a strong #7 -- Mo Pete was great and all, but did he really have a great career? Did he make a big impact? Not really. Anyway here's my top 7.

    1. Vince Carter
    2. Chris Bosh
    3. Jose Calderon
    4. Damon Stoudamire
    5. Antonio Davis
    6. Doug Christie
    7. Morris Peterson

    Basically the same list as TRex except I put Jose higher than Damon, because Jose played with us for so many seasons while Damon was only here a few years. Also, if you just look purely from a point guard perspective and efficiency, Jose is better. I was also looking at Alvin Williams -- he just wasn't very good. Was he a warrior of mythic proportions? Absolutely. But as a player or point guard -- eh.
    your pal,
    ebrian

    True! Give that list to people outside of the Toronto faithful and you'll get a lot of "who?".

    all top 10 lists not including Zan Tabak are automatically void.

    Ewwww Andrea is in your top 10?? In my opinion you shouldnt be in the top 10 if you're being BOO'd while STILL playing with the team. No way Andrea makes my top 15.

    Here's my list for what it's worth (this was harder than i thought it would be).

    1. Vince Carter
    2. Chris Bosh
    3. Jose Calderon
    4. Morris Peterson (shot vs the Wizard was simply awesome plus he was an iron man for us)
    5. Antonio Davis
    6. Alvin Williams (one of my favs all time)
    7. Amir Johnson
    8. JYD
    9. Doug Christie
    10. Demar Derozan

    Honarable Mentions:

    Anthony Parker
    Jorge Garbajosa
    Charles Oakley
    Damon Stoudamire (just a few seasons - didn't end well at all)

    I agree Jonas and Rudy will be on this list if all goes well.
