Raptors Time Machin-The glory years (VC)

I was just thinking before I went to bed of an interesting topic to put out there to you all...

Think back to the glory years & the best one of significance to me is the 2000-2001 season where VC arguably had his best season & he was arguably the best SG in the league well at least we all knew for sure he was the best dunker

I know this would never happen because you have to loose to be picking when & where we did in each draft year but think about it what if we could have all the best players possible that we could have had on that roster that year, I believe it would have been a championship team!!

So here is my 2000-2001 Raptors squad the way I dream it was:

SG/Michael Finley___21.5ppg 4.4apg 5.2rpg 0.4bpg 1.4spg fg%0.458 3p%0.346
PG/Kobe Bryant_____28.5ppg 5.0apg 5.9rpg 0.6bpg 1.7spg fg%0.464 3p%0.305
PF/Tracy McGrady__26.8ppg 4.6apg 7.5rpg 1.5bpg 1.5spg fg%0.457 3p%0.355
SF/Vince Carter____27.6ppg 3.9apg 5.5rpg 1.1bpg 1.5spg fg%0.460 3p%0.408
C/Shawn Marion___17.3ppg 2.0apg 10.7rpg 1.4bpg 1.7spg fg%0.480 3p%0.256

Bench:
Ron Artest_____11.9ppg 3.0apg 3.9rpg 0.6bpg 2.0spg fg%0.401 3P%0.291
Moe Pete______9.3ppg 1.3apg 3.2rpg 0.2bpg 0.8spg fg%0.431 3P%0.382
Charles Oakley__9.6ppg 3.4apg 9.5rpg 0.6bpg 1.0spg fg%0.390 3p%0.220
Alvin Williams___9.8ppg 5.0apg 2.6rpg 0.3bpg 1.5spg fg%0.430 3p%0.306
Keon Clark_____9.0ppg 0.8apg 5.4rpg 2.3bpg 0.3spg fg%0.522 3p%0.000
Jerome Williams_5.0ppg 0.8apg 4.0rpg 0.3bpg 0.7spg fg%0.516 3p%0.000
Chris Childs____4.5ppg 4.6apg 2.5rpg 0.3bpg 0.8spg fg%0.372 3p%0.286

Note that once again Ron Ron is playing with Kobe LOL

& I know that the starters aren't tall but with that much talent & jumping ability they would still beat everyone!
My team will look like the real life NBA STREET or NBA JAM the video games LOL

This is my possible dream team for the 2000-2001 season what is yours?

Shaq, Garnett, Vince, Kobe, Kidd.

Duncan, Webber, AI, Payton, TMac, Nowitzki, Allen off the bench.

Though, maybe I don't really understand where you got your team from. Marion at center? Really? TMac at PF?

I picked my team using raptor draft picks from 1995-2000.

Because we would dominate at every position it wouldn't matter if my team just has an undersized PF playing C?

Yes Shaq will dominate us but we will just out score him anyways so it won't matter lol

No.

He is saying if he could go back and redraft(1995-2001) he would draft Kobe #2 in 1996. He is making a whole new team by going back redrafting players from the years of 95-01 and that would be his team in the end.

we didnt do a bad job drafting (see: Tmac in 97, VC in 98)
if tmac didnt bolt to orlando in 2000, im sure we wouldve beat the sixers in 01 playoffs and we wouldve played kobe and shaq in the finals that year, the roster that year was solid
, with tmac on it wouldve put us over the top
G: Alvin Williams / Chris Childs
G: Vince Carter / Del Curry
F: Tracy McGrady / Mo Peterson
F: Charles Oakley / Jerome Williams
C: Antonio Davis / Keon Clark

True T-Mac was close to the top of his game so the Raps 1-2 punch was close to equal to the Lakers but the Raps bench is better & deeper it could have been just as simple as keeping T-mac which most of us Raps fans believe

how about something that was realistic at the time, and would have happened if bad decisions weren't made by players and management

its funny because every looks back that Oakley and Alvin williams being these great raptor leaders, but I remember chuckers, I hated alvin williams, he only redeemed himself and clearly made his career off being professional and making a big shot, but I just remember him geting beat all the time defensivly and taking bad shots all the time, and Oakley is the biggest joke out of everyone, I watched a recent Raptors greatest games, and what i've seen from Oakley on redeemed what I remembered, a guy who was asshole who only shot deep shots, his offense was hitting long distance J's and he has the nerve to criticize Chris Bosh and Bargnani about shooting those type of shots, this team wouldn't have been nothing without Vince Carter, so when listen to interviews now on the fan590 and they talk about the leadership, well guess what before Vince got soft he was a machine then always dunked and hit clutch shots he was the real leader of this team and never gets credit for that

the team that would have been

PG Damon Stoudamire
SG Vince Carter
SF Tracy McGrady
PF Atonio Davis
C Marus Camby

if Damon was convinced to play out his contract, if Toronto Fans didn't expect Camby to be a scoring machine and just let him focus on what he is best at defense, the Davis trade would have worked out Bender for Davis

your telling me this isn't on a championship level team that year we played the sixers with a healthy VC, a Mcgrady signed back, Damon leading us at point, Camby shot blocking and rebounding, and Davis posting up
