Oakley may well be the toughest dude to ever lace up a pair of sneakers in the history of the NBA.

It doesn’t matter if it’s the Dream Team or a pick up league team, every team needs to have a guy like Oakley.

He played three seasons for the Raptors from 1998 to 2001 and was a part of the 99-00 team which is arguably the best team in the history of the franchise.

He averaged 7.9 points along with 8 rebounds per game during his 208 games as a Raptor.

No opposing team dared to mess with Vince Carter as long as Oakley was in the building.
