Vince Carter
Chris Bosh

The most accomplished Raptors,all either selected as an All Star or won Rookie of the year with the franchise.

*Honorable mention goes to Amir Johnson

it can't include Lowry yet, he hasn't really done anything for a full season yet.

VC Bosh Damon AD

The top 3 are locked, you could place someone else in the four spot, perhaps Alvin, but I think AD was huge for us. A legit all-star big.

That Davis for Johnathan Bender trade turned out to be a steal!

VC is number one, that's a given.

Bosh has to be number two, also a given.

And then it gets kind of murky. I think my next would be Mo Pete and then Jose Calderon.

If we could have just somehow kept TMAC too. We should have pulled out all stops, including luxury tax. We had Alvin, VC, Tmac, Mo-pete, JYD, Davis, Oakley, Willis. Had great defensive stopper in Christie, Keon Clark (even though he was high a few times) and 3 point shooting with Dell Curry and Brown. We had the perfect mix of youth, talent, and veterans. Damn.....we could have contended for years...

Vince Carter (best player in franchise history)
Chris Bosh (Second best player in franchise history)
Alvin Williams (one of my favorite players to root for ever)
Kyle Lowry (best all around PG we've ever had imo)

I don't think it's love per se.

It's more for his role in giving the franchise an identity.

I mean Jefferson is on the real Mt. Rushmore for being a founding father, but he wasn't a very good dude.

VC, CB don't need an explanation

DD - 1st time all-star, has made progress in each year he's been in the league. Emerging as a potential threat to CB's franchise total in points scored.

Damon- Damon gave the team hope in the early years, Rookie of the Year, put up big numbers with us. Shockingly beat MJ's Bulls during the inaugural season.

I'd be inclined to throw Oak, Dell Curry, or Alvin in there instead of Damon for the major impact they had during our brightest times.

Nope.

He was a guy who was a huge proponent of the abolishment of slavery, but spent most of his life profiting from it...
