No. 2: Chris Bosh, 21.3

Our final two entrants on this list are likely the ones you would have expected, two of the greatest players to ever don a Raptors uniform. Chris Bosh checks in at second on this list with a positively dominant PER number of 21.3.

The fourth pick of the 2003 NBA Draft, Chris Bosh quickly became a fan favorite before of his dinosaur-like profile and his passion while on the basketball court. He also earned it with his play, improving quickly and making his first All-Star team in his third season; he would never miss another one the remainder of his career.

Bosh played seven seasons with the Raptors as the star of the franchise before leaving to join LeBron James and Dwyane Wade in Miami in 2010. For his Raptors career he averaged 20.2 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and shot 49.2 percent from the field, an impressive number given his large role.

The career totals also support this ranking in Toronto history. Bosh ranks second in franchise history in made field goals, first in rebounds and first in blocks; Kyle Lowry just barely passed him in career scoring to push him to third. He meant a lot to the franchise during a difficult stretch and led them back to the playoffs in the wake of Vince Carter's departure, and no one is questioning his No. 2 ranking on this list.
