Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our post 2021/22 revision of our top Toronto Raptors.
As for all of our top 50 players in basketball we look at the following:
1. Advanced Statistics.
2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the National Basketball Association.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
Last year, Toronto returned to the playoffs, but were bounced in the first round. The impact of 2021-22 yielded three elevations and one new entrant.
As always, we present our top five, which was not affected by the last season:
1. Kyle Lowry
2. Chris Bosh
3. Vince Carter
You can find the entire list here.
Notably, last year’s All-NBA Third Team Selection, Pascal Siakim, was unable to advance from #7.
Last year’s first-time All-Star, Fred Van Vleet, advanced from #12 to #8.
Big man, Chris Boucher, continues his surprise ascendence on this list, moving three spots to #18.
Small Forward, O.G. Anunoby, moves to #20 from #23.
The only new entrant is Scottie Barnes, last season’s Rookie of the Year who debuts at #36.
We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
