    Default All-time Raptor team

    Saw an ad during the game for the magazine featuring the top 30 leafs of all time and started wondering if the top 12 Raptors would even win the title.

    So, just for fun, what's the top Raptors team (assuming the player's peak Raptor years, not prime for another team aka Hakeem).

    Damon/Lowry/Mark Jackson
    Vince/Demar
    TMac/Rose
    Bosh/Oak
    AD/Camby/Willis

    I guess...

    Obviously that team would be very deep, but looking at the starting five, even in their prime raptor years wouldn't be a lock for a title in my opinion, keeping in mind that TMac was still just good when he left.

    People like to think about Tmac wistfully, like he was some allstar we let go, but the truth is the dude was still VERY raw when he left.

    I wouldn't say that. His first year with Orlando he averaged 27pts, 7.5rbs & 5apg. Those are SICK numbers and not really reflective of someone who is "VERY raw".

    I think some just didn't realize how good he actually was at the time.

    Who was the go to player on the raptors? Vince carter who played a similar game to T Mac which is why he got more touches than T Mac did. As a result his numbers were lower
