As we continue our fan favourite week, we decided to ask you, the fans, who was the Toronto Raptors All-Time Fan Favourite? Now, we’ll crown the fan favourite champ.
Round one is officially in the books. Thousands of votes were casted, several players hearts were broken, and now, we’ve made it to the quarterfinals of Toronto Raptors fan favourite bracket. We’re officially in the elite eight.
And while the elite eight is nice, no one raises banners for making it to the quarterfinals. NCAA programs don’t boast about their elite eight appearances. They brag about how many times they’ve made the final four.
This round is where we will determine the players who were well-liked from those that were truly beloved.
A reminder of our criteria: Fan favorites are based on how popular they were in relation to their overall production. We’re not trying to find the most popular players; The Ultimate Fan Favourite has slightly different criteria.
We didn’t allow for any all-stars on this list or for any players who were once the best players on the team. The Ultimate Fan Favourite is meant to represent the player beloved by Toronto Raptors fans, even if the casual NBA fan wasn’t aware of them.
Our first round saw some popular names bit the dust early. Matt Bonner, Jorge Garbajosa, Reggie Evans, Charles Oakley, Bruno Caboclo, Lucas Nogueira, Terrence Ross, and Chris Boucher have all been eliminated.
Now, there are only eight remaining, and luckily, you have a voice. Who will advance to the final four? We have a few heavyweight style matchups.
