Favourite Raptor? It's Vince Carter (not a Vince hater). Why? Looking back at the dunk competition...

Alvin Williams

I was rather young and unenthusiastic, but I still remember his wicked cross over step back 20 footer that always went it.

Here are some of my favourite Raptors of all time, they may not be now though because of their actions with the team.

Vince Carter - He was absolutely amazing while he was here, he put the Toronto Raptors on the NBA map and watching that dunk competition where he lit it up gives me chills. However, I now hate his guts, because he was selfish and put himself above the team, city and fans. I hope he never wins a thing again, but he was absolutely spectacular when he played for us in the beginning.

Alvin Williams - He was all effort and hustle, never was the most talented but he put his heart on the line everytime he took the court. His desire to play should never be questionned as he has battled through the slew of injuries he has endured, however I personally, for the benefit of his team would like him to retire, as one of the fan favourite Raptors of all time.

These are two in particular, the first because he made the Raptors what they are, however I now hate him because of the way he treated the team and its fans. I don't think I'll ever hate Alvin Williams for his desire to continue playing, I feel sorry that for an individual who pushed and tried so hard, that it will just never come for him and he will never be rewarded, a shame really.

So many Alvin "Boogie" Williams fans- too bad he has been injured for over three years. Sadly enough, he could be waived.

I am hoping that he will eventually just say his goodbyes and retire with class and dignity. The guy has been an absolute warrior for the team, it's a shame that someone so dedicated to the sport is hit with injuries for the latter portion of his career, he definately didn't deserve it. It must kill him to see people in the NBA who don't have 1/10th the drive or determination that he has.

Thumbs up



Chris Bosh.

Cause I think he will be the first Raptor to have his number retired. He's talented, humble, a hard worker, and he's committed to being a Raptor for a long time. He loves being in TO and the feeling is mutual.

2nd place is Charlie V.....cause he makes things look easy in offence. Coming into last season, I never expected him to be that good.

JYD - The guy had no talent, but he worked his has off and hustled every play. Had no fear and is a damn good guy.

Boogie - You look up heart in the dictionary and Alvin Williams face is right there.

Bosh - The kid is talented as hell and is a hella nice guy.

Alvin Williams was my favourite Raptor through the early 00's and is probably my fave Raptor of all time.

Chris Bosh

even if he never gets in the hall of fame, it's his attitude off the court that sets him apart from the rest of the NBA. Easily my favourite Raptor.

FAVORITES

Bosh- for all obvious reasons (....mind you it's the same reasons I liked Carter in his first 3 years here)

damon stoudemire- he really was a treat to watch while he was here

popeye jones - watching him mangle and out rebound rodman was wicked.

....i'm sure i'll get criticized here, but, Hoffa - I realize he stinks, but everytime he gets a shot at playing, I watch his every move (usually in frustration). I wish he would be decent, at least.

Bosh to date is my favorite player because he is classy and not an a**hole like the rest of the superstars that went through TO. If he says he will do it he will. He's a leader by example and starting to get more vocal and get on people. He is definitely the best the Raps have had till now.
