Default Your top 3 Raptors

Give me your current 3 favorite raptors, and then give me your favorite 3 all time raptors.

CURRENTLY

Demar- Love the way he plays, really do think he will be something special in a couple years, and i think he will stay in Toronto.
Bayless- Always liked his game, i know he prob won't be a star, but i could see him as a great energy 6th man. Instant offense and spark off the bench type player.
Bargs- (don't hate i know the guy has issues, but when he is on i love watching him play, and as a fellow Italian got a soft spot for him that makes me overlook a lot of the errors in his game and concentrate on the good stuff, which does exist as well) On top of that I also think he has been consistently improving year to year though maybe not as much as Raptors fans hoped, and i think this year he is showing alot more fire. He also seems to be getting along with teammates better, which i like to see.

ALLTIME

JYD- I loved the junk yard dog, i wish every player in basketball had his attitude about the game.
Alvin Williams- True warrior of the game, gave everything (including his knees) to the team.
Demar- yep i like him that much.

In the little time I've seen him play, that's the role he'd succeed in. The problem is, the Raptors haven't given him a fair chance, he did well when he started. However, overall, I think people are trying to mold him into a PG, I think he is what he is. He is a scorer, he'll put the ball in the basket for you. People need to stop molding him into something he's not. He's like a Barbosa, he'll come in, provide energy, score some points and back on the bench...

I guess Amir Johnson, he's a pretty decent bench big man but unfortunatley he's played like a starting big.

This is exactly the role i see him in, just like Barbosa back in the glory days of the suns. Instant tweener offense, little time at pg little time a sg and just creating and bombing 3's.
