I was reading an article on another site, where they were choosing the best Raptors in franchise history to create a team. Gave me the idea to start this thread, because there isn't really anything else to talk about right now. Choose 10 players (5 starters/5 backups) and explain why you think it's the best team. Also, this only counts the player's stay in Toronto. So if you chose Hakeem Olajuwon, you get the Toronto Hakeem, not the Houston one. And if you choose VC, it wouldn't be the current one playing in NJ. PG: Alvin Williams / Damon Stoudamire SG: Doug Christie / Morris Peterson SF: Vince Carter / Tracy McGrady PF: Chris Bosh / Charles Oakley C: Antonio Davis / Marcus Camby There were actually some tough decisions to make, the two hardest being Alvin Williams over Stoudamire and Doug Christie over Peterson. Ultimately, I felt that there was already enough scoring in the starting lineup, and I wanted a player who could defend and just set up the main guys. Christie, IMO, brings more versatility to the 2-spot than Peterson, and Mo-Pete's always shown how great a spark he can be off the bench. The VC and Chris Bosh pick were the easiest and AD, while a bit undersized, definitely had his most productive seasons with the Raps. All in all, I really like the makeup of this team. Everybody in the starting lineup can defend (CB4 probably being the weakest) and there doesn't seem to be any liabilities on either side of the floor. What really makes this team great though, is the bench. You can completely change the look of the team with a single substitution, whether you want to bring in Camby and lockdown the paint, bring in Damon and just fly down the court, or bring in Oak for some hard-nosed basketball. Considering we've only been in the league for 12 years, this is a pretty impressive collection of talent.
