The Toronto Raptors have depth at all five positions, but which positional group ranks the best?

Over the past few years, the Toronto Raptors have had a knack for developing young talent while simultaneously remaining competitive. Just last year, the Raptors had the NBA’s Most Improved Player in Pascal Siakam and won the NBA title for the first time in franchise history.

This season saw the Raptors stay on course for yet another successful season. They sit second in the Eastern Conference with a record of 46-18 and already have a spot in the playoffs – whenever they may be, due to the NBA being on a current hiatus due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

For now, all we can do is wait for basketball to come back into our lives. It might not be in the not-so-distant future, but sooner rather than later, basketball will be back and the Toronto Raptors will likely step back into a position of winning.

No other team in the NBA has been able to replicate the formula quite like the Raptors. Only the San Antonio Spurs have been able to do so, but they look to finally miss out on the playoffs in the 2019-20 NBA season.

From top to bottom, the Raptors have an impressive roster. Their mix of young upcoming talent and hardworking and smart veterans positions them as one of the best rosters in the NBA, but keeping things in house, how do the Raptors position groups rank amongst each other?

How do the Raptors power forwards rank against the centers, and which group is crowned as the best group on the roster?

Let’s find out.
