    Default Your Favourite NBA Player

    I just recently made a RR account, been on the site for a while. Who's your favorite NBA player? Is it a Raptor?

    My favourite player of all time is Allen Iverson, I'll never forget his legendary 2000-2001 season where he absolutely carried the sixers to the NBA finals, and even got a W against the heavily favoured Lakers.

    My favourite Raptor(s) include: Morris Peterson, VC, Calderon, Derozan, and Ross

    My favourite non-raptor is Steph Curry. I still think about what would have happened had we traded for him during the draft back in 2009, but I can't complain since we got Derozan.

    All-Time fav player is probably Dirk. Just loved watching his career. I don't need highlight dunks when I can watch him swishing high arching fadeaways all game. On a trip to the U.S about ten years ago I was so excited to get to watch him play against T-Mac and the magic in Orlando. He responded by scoring 4 points, playing about 15 minutes as they got blown out by like 40. Took me a while to forgive him owning LeBron in the finals was more than enough.

    TRoss is my favourite player today. Love that guy, looking forward to watching him get better and better.

    If we're going all-time its both Iverson and Vince. They are the reason I'm a basketball fan today.

    If we're talking active players, I will definitely say Demar and Lowry are up there.
    But my favourite player is definitely Steve Nash still. Regardless of how 'active' he is these days. Really hope he gets one more good season (even half a season?) before calling it quits.

    My favourite player all-time is Morris Peterson.

    My favourite Raptor all-time is Morris Peterson, with Calderon coming in as a close second and Jalen Rose and Donyell Marshall coming in a distant third along with Demar.

    My favourite current Raptors are Landry, Patman, Psycho-T and Kyle ... in no particular order.

    Beyond the borders though, I like Stephen Curry, Paul George, Marc Gasol and Tyson Chandler.

    Vince brought me to the league through the movie "Like Mike" and then Morris Peterson took over quickly afterwards after watching my first games. Of course it wouldn't have been the same without Chuck Swirsky commenting the sunny days of Raptors history.

    All-Time: T-Mac. He was amazing
    All-Time Raptor: Demar. He works so hard and he loves the city.
    Current Non-Raptor: KD. Jesus, is he exciting. He's humble and a great guy, but on the court he's a murderer.

    Bonus Pick: SWAGGY P. Wade's nickname for himself: WoW (terrible). Durant's: The Servant (terrible). Nick Young's: SWAGGY P, BABY.

    Gotta love the guy. It's the role players who give coaches migraines and dress flashy, with flashy games to match, that talk endless amounts of trash, and can 0-12 and still take a pull-up that make the NBA great.
