Re: Raptors All-Time Team

Kyle Lowry 2012
Doug Christie 1998
Vince Carter 2000
Chris Bosh 2006
Antonio Davis 2000

Tracy McGrady 2000
Marcus Camby 1998
Jose Calderon 2008
Anthony Parker 2007
Charles Oakley 1999
Reggie Evans 2009
Dell Curry 1999

The 20-year old T-Mac doesn't need to feature in this starting lineup. There is only one ball and with 2.5 great scorers (including Lowry) in there he'd be better off the bench. Lowry is a better fit defensively for the starting lineup and doesn't dominate the ball like Stoudamire did in his tenure in Toronto. This is a good two-way team. Lowry (with teams not focusing on him) and attack-mode Vince would play well off each other. Bosh offset's Davis' weak offensive game, Davis offsets Bosh's reluctance to bang in the paint. I don't love having Davis at centre but our options are limited. Christie is one of the best wing defenders we've had and although he lacks a little as an open shooter his looks would be limited anyway.

Can't hide Calderon on defense but as reserve player he's just fine. Parker would have gotten more credit had he played for a better team in his second NBA stint. He is a useful player off the bench, more so than Peterson or DeRozan IMO--more savvy, better distance shooter. Camby makes the second unit because he turned into a good defensive player in time but in his first few seasons in the league he wasn't that guy yet. Oakley isn't there to play much, just provide veteran insanity and intimidate the other team. Curry will play when we need to make free throws or need a steady hand behind the arc but not much more than that. Reggie Evans when we need rebounding.
