Conjuring up a list of the top 25 players in Toronto Raptors history is a lot more difficult than it sounds.
Approximately 183 players have suited up for the team since the franchise was introduced to the league back in 1995. Of those 183, only 45 competed in more than 100 games.
Finding greatness in this pack of talent will be hard. Only three Raptors have ever been named an All-Star, and the team itself has only qualified for the postseason 27.7 percent of the time.
However, after scouring through the annals of Raptors history, I believe I've come up with a list of 25 players that is acceptable, reasonable and fair.
Statistics, popularity, the player's contributions on and off the court, longevity, talent and individual performance were all taken into consideration. Also, only players with at least 100 games as a Raptor under their belt can qualify for this list.
Notable names like Rudy Gay, Charlie Villanueva, Hedo Turkoglu, Jonas Valanciunas, Jermaine O'Neal, Jarrett Jack and Muggsy Bogues will not be appearing on this list after failing to meet that key piece of criteria.
