    Did he though?

    Just because Derozan played here for 5 years it doesn't mean that he should be ahead of Lowry.

    Greatest Raptors have to mean success. That's why you have to put Alvin williams ahead of Calderon, and if we win a series, Lowry leapfrogs everyone to #3. Derozan would probably be #4.

    Bosh would go down one or two pegs, because he never won a series. So if we close out this series, the list is like this:

    1. vince
    2. Antonio Davis
    3. lowry
    4. derozan
    5. bosh
    6. alvin williams
    7. jose calderon
    8. mcgrady
    9. mopete
    10. uhhhh.......vince again

    VC is the greatest. Followed by Mo Pete, Stoudamire, Oakley and Williams.

    All that due to the legacy they left. (my interpretation of greatest)

    Amir Johnson is the greatest Raptor of all time.

    I think Stoudamire is the most overrated Raptor ever. What legacy? To be the first guy to bail on the team? For being the first volume scorer who was a fully average player in any other situation than getting to be the chucker on a really bad expansion team?

    I don't mean to start an argument, or discussion even. Just my opinion. I never understood why people had a soft spot for him. He was the default most popular player in our early terrible years. He was not that good, and he didn't do anything for the franchise.

    1. Carter (hands down still at this point)
    2. Davis (I put him over Bosh because of his leadership while here. He always played balls out and really helped set the tone for the team)
    3. Bosh (great talent, shit leader and soft as 3-ply moisturized deluxe toilet paper)

    After that, it gets mucked up...I would put

    4. DeMar
    5. Alvin
    6. Jose
    7. Mo Pete
    8. Amir

    Lowry is not on list until we see if he re-signs. If he does, he jumps up to 5th. And if DeMar and Lowry lead us back to playoffs next year, they move up to 2 and 3.

    What about JYD? I thought he was a great Raptor...but not necessarily for being all that good.

    What I like to do is rank a player based on only one season of play when wearing a Raptor uniform.

    Here is my list:

    1) Vince Carter - (2000-2001)
    2) Kyle Lowry - (2013-2014)
    3) Chris Bosh - (2008-2009)
    4) Jose Calderon - (2007-2008)
    5) Antonio Davis (2000-2001)
    6) Tracy McGrady (2000-2001)
    7) Amir Johnson (2010-2011)
    8) DeMar Derozan (2013-2014)
    9) Alvin Williams (2002-2003)

    C'mon now demar does not get any love here in rr. He should at least be above t Mac and Johnson. What did Amir do in that season that has made him 7 and Mac did not have a better year than demar even in the slightest. He was second fiddle to VCR and derozan is 1 or 2 fiddle with klow

    Forgetting about defense.. TMac/Amir/Davis were really good defenders those years.. Jose was in the 50-40-90 club so that's why I ranked him 4th. DD had a good year offensively but as been stated many times in this forum he's been inefficient. At least he made my top 10.

    well put it this way, take derozan off this team and we are maybe contending for the 9th seed
