List RulesPlease rank the players based only on their time with the Raptors

A list of the best Toronto Raptors of all time. Formed in 1995, the Raptors are currently the only NBA team based out of the United States. In the team's short history, it hasn't experienced much success outside of a few years at the turn of the century. Behind the best player in team history, Vince Carter, the Raptors made the playoffs a handful of times, with its only division title coming in 2007. With Carter as the team's best player,, the Raptors advanced out the first round only once in 2001. For a franchise that hasn't had many winning seasons, the Raptors have had a number of Rookie of the Year Award winners. In addition to Carter, Damon Stoudamire and former first overall pick Andrea Bargnani won the award.

Some of the best players in Raptors history haven't stuck around to lead Toronto to a championship. The best example of this is star power forward Chris Bosh. One of the best current NBA players, Bosh bolted Toronto in 2010 for Miami to team up with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The same goes for Tracy McGrady, who was a rising star but left Canada to play for the Orlando Magic in 2000 just before he became a household name. 

This is a list of the best Toronto Raptors of all time. If you think someone deserves to be on this list and isn't feel free to add him. Vote or rerank this list according to who you think should be considered the greatest Toronto Raptors player ever.
