    Default Best Shooter in Raptors History?

    There is five seconds on the clock and the Raptors are down by two, if you can pick any Raptors past or present to take the shot, who is it? AND deuce or three?

    There are some outstanding choices. You have the likes of Vince, Tracy, Dell, etc.

    If the game is on the line, I'd want Vince to be taking that shot.

    None other than Sebastian MOTHER FUCKIN Telfair

    Telfair and a friend, Al Eden Fuentes,[16] were arrested early on April 20, 2007 and charged with felony possession of a weapon, after a traffic stop.[17] The traffic stop was prompted when Telfair was spotted driving his 2006 Range Rover 77 mph on the Bronx River Parkway, a 45 mph zone. Telfair was driving under a suspended Florida license. When the police searched Telfair's vehicle, a loaded .45 caliber handgun was found under the passenger's seat. Both Telfair and Eden claimed to not have any knowledge of the handgun. Police had yet to determine the registration status of the handgun.[16]

    From just reading the thread title, the only name that instantly came to mind was Dell.

    LOL, and no one in attendance has their hand up.

    Yeah, I just assumed you all would want the greatest shooter taking the shot. If you want to consider Hoffa or Michael Bradley or someone else then that's fine as well.

    3-way tie. Anthony Parker, Mo Pete, or VC. Overall best shooter of the 3 is Parker, so I guess if I have to pick 1 I choose him. He was a clutch shooter overseas and brought it to the NBA level too.

    Dell, easily. Alvin wasn't the greatest shooter or that offensively gifted but i remember him making some clutch shots.

    I also remember vince missing a lot of big shots.

    1) Vince

    2) Billups (he's made some big shots in his career)

    3) McGrady

    Honourable mentions: Curry, Stoudamire, Stojakovic (in prime), Rose (in prime), strickland (in prime)

    Rudy Gay has had a decent track record with game winners in his short time with the raptors too

    Best shooter to ever play for the Raps: Dell Curry or Peja Stojakovic...too close to call

    Best shooters who logged significant time with the Raps:
    -Anthony Parker
    -Jose Calderon

    I'd like to put Mo Pete there, but while he was solid and put in some great seasons in the high-30% range, he was also streaky and inconsistent. I'd like to put Vince there, but I can't, because I always hated how much he'd fall back on the 3 and take lazy shots. Also he had many average seasons shooting the ball.

    dont disagree with the Vince sentiment. If there is 10 seconds on the clock and we need a bucket, its Vince by a country mile.

    However, in terms of a guy to just simply hit the shot, I cant get Tracy Murray out of my head. Dell had the sweetest stroke, but I cant remember him hitting that many key end of game type shots (whereas I seem to remember lots for Murray, or even Donyell Marshall for that matter.. )

    Raps should get Seth Curry with a pick. Send him to D-LEague watch him grow bring him in as a role player later in the future.

    Del Curry ... and it's not close.
