With the Toronto Raptors celebrating their 20th anniversary season in 2014-15, Josh Lewenberg and TSN.ca take a look back at the franchises first two decades with weekly Top Five lists, counting down the standout and signature players and moments in team history. 5. Morris Peterson Raptors shooting stats (7 seasons): .371 3P%, .421 FG%, .782 FT% Career shooting stats (11 seasons): .373 3P%, .418 FG%, .773 FT% Before it became widely recognized as the most efficient shot in basketball, Peterson made his living spotting up in the corners as a long-time member of the Raptors. Bridging the gap between the Vince Carter and Chris Bosh eras in Toronto, Peterson was at his best when he could play off one of the teams All-Stars. With Carter and Bosh drawing in attention, Peterson - the Raptors all-time leader in games played - saw plenty of open looks but hes best known for what he could do with the contested ones. No one made circus shots look easier than Peterson. Case in point, one of his last, yet most memorable moments as a Raptor. Undermanned and trailing by three in the dying seconds of a game against the Wizards on Mar. 30, 2007, the Raptors forward threw up a desperation three-ball from 31-feet out to beat the buzzer and force overtime. There are several of deserving players that could make a case for this spot, but Peterson gets the nod for longevity and theatrics. 4. Donyell Marshall Raptors shooting stats (2 seasons): .410 3P%, .457 FG%, .759 FT% Career shooting stats (15 seasons): .350 3P%, .435 FG%, .731 FT% Coming over in a trade from Chicago early in the 2003-04 season, Marshall blossomed in his role as the Raptors stretch four in an era before the hybrid position became all the rage in the NBA. The 6-foot-9 forward could rebound and defend better than hes given credit but his bread and butter, at that stage of his career, came from beyond the arc. Marshall shot a hair better than 40 per cent from long range in his first season with Toronto and topped out at 42 per cent off the bench the following year. His most memorable night came on Mar. 13, 2005 when he set the franchise mark and tied Kobe Bryant NBA record making 12 three-pointers in a win over the 76ers, scoring a career-high 38 points in the process. 3. Anthony Parker Raptors shooting stats (3 seasons): .424 3P%, .460 FG%, .829 FT% Career shooting stats (9 seasons): .404 3P%, .444 FG%, .794 FT% Quietly, yet consistently, Parker was one of the most reliable spot-up shooters to wear a Raptor uniform. The former Euroleague star shot at least 39 per cent from long range in each of his three seasons with Toronto, topping out at 44 per cent in his debut, helping the team to its first ever division title. A beneficiary of Jose Calderons pinpoint passing and the attention opposing defences would focus on Bosh, Parker excelled from the corners. He ranks fourth on the Raptors all-time three-point field goal percentage list (.424) and is responsible for the third (.441) and fourth (.438) best single-season shooting marks. 2. Jose Calderon Raptors shooting stats (8 seasons): .388 3P%, .481 FG%, .877 FT% Career shooting stats (10 seasons): .413 3P%, .479 FG%, .874 FT% Calderon is best known for his playmaking and leadership abilities at the point guard position, but he also happened to be one of the most efficient shooters in Raptors history. Most impressively, hes a self-made shooter. As a rookie coming over from Spain, Calderon connected on just seven of his 43 attempts (16 per cent) from beyond the arc. Seven years later, the season he was traded, the Spaniard shot an absurd 46 per cent from three-point range to lead the NBA. In 2009 he set the franchise record for consecutive free throws made (87), also the second-longest streak in league history. Hes ranked ninth on the Raptors all-time field goal percentage list, the only guard in the top 10. The only knock on his shot: he didnt use it enough. 1. Dell Curry Raptors shooting stats (3 seasons): .390 3P%, .420 FG%, .833 FT% Career shooting stats (16 seasons): .402 3P%, .457 FG%, .843 FT% Curry came to the Raptors in his mid-30s and would play his final three NBA seasons in Toronto just as they were starting to turn the corner. His shooting stroke was a thing of beauty - the smoothest in Raptors history and one of the finest this league has ever seen. Unsurprisingly, the vets biggest moments came on the biggest stage. Hitting 20 of his 45 three-point attempts in three trips to the playoffs with Toronto, Curry was relied upon late in games because of his knack for making crucial jumpers. His most memorable shot came with less than a minute remaining in Game 7 of the second-round series against Philadelphia in 2011. Curry knocked down a trey to pull within one - those would be the last points scored in the series, leading to Vince Carters infamous fadeaway that would rim out in the final seconds. A year later he was at it again, scoring 14 of his team-high 17 points in the fourth quarter of a deciding Game 5 against Detroit, nearly carrying his team to an unlikely series win without the injured Carter. He passed on that gift to his son, Steph - currently one of, if not the best shooters in the NBA.

Cheap Cardinals Jerseys . -- Zach Johnson is like most players at the World Challenge, not sure whether hes still playing in 2013 or if hes in the middle of the new wraparound season that officially started in October. ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Matt McGloin has made a career out of exceeding other peoples expectations. The player who had no scholarship offers coming out of high school walked on at Penn State and became the schools career leader in touchdown passes. The player who sent a letter and video to NFL teams pleading for a chance after getting passed over for the combine went undrafted before finally getting a chance as a camp arm with the Oakland Raiders. The player who entered training camp as a fourth-stringer managed to beat out fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson for a roster spot and moved up to second string when Matt Flynn was released last month. As surprising as all of those accomplishments may have been, it was his performance in his first NFL start last week in Houston that really opened up eyes. McGloin became the fourth quarterback since the 1970 NFL merger to throw three touchdown passes and no interceptions in his first career start in place of the injured Terrelle Pryor to earn himself a longer-term look as the starter in Oakland. "I never took a backseat to anybody," McGloin said. "I didnt put myself in a position that Im buried behind all these guys. I really dont look at who is ahead of me on the depth chart or whos behind me on the depth chart. Each day is a better way to get better, improve as a leader, improve as a person." McGloin will make his second start on Sunday against Tennessee (4-6) as Pryor still is dealing with a right knee injury and the Raiders (4-6) want to see if he can repeat that performance. "This is a production business," coach Dennis Allen said. "If you go out and you perform and you make plays, you get opportunities to continue to go out and perform and make plays. Matt did that last week. Hes going to get another opportunity this week. Well see how it goes." McGloins ascension from undrafted quarterback to starter is not unique as players such as Kurt Warner, Tony Romo and Jeff Garcia also took that route. But those players came from much lower-profile colleges than Penn State, where scouts had ample opportunity to watch McGloin play against NFL-caliber opposition, and took longer to reach their NFL success. They all spent time either in the Arena Football League, NFL Europe, Canada or an NFL bench before getting a chance to start in the NFL. "I think some guys werent born or blessed with great athleticism, size or speed or strength, all those things you can measure," Allen said. "You cant measure whats in their head or their heart. This guy has overcome a lot of challenges." It started when he got no scholarship offers coming out of high school in Scrranton, Pa.dddddddddddd, and decided to walk on at Penn State. One reason McGloin didnt get a scholarship was because Penn State was waiting to see if Pryor would come to State College. But even being at the same school as the top quarterback recruit in the country couldnt scare the confident McGloin. "I remember asking him, What happens if Terrelle goes to Penn State," McGloins father, Paul, said. "He said, Dad, I dont care. Ill go there and beat whoever is there." Pryor went to Ohio State and McGloin spent much of his time in college fighting off more heralded recruits like Rob Bolden, Paul Jones and Kevin Newsome before earning his chance. He became the starter midway through his sophomore season in 2010 before throwing five interceptions in a loss to Florida at the Outback Bowl. McGloin began the 2011 season as the backup to Bolden before becoming the starter just weeks before the Jerry Sandusky scandal went public at Penn State, throwing the program in disarray. That eventually led to the firing of longtime coach Joe Paterno and crippling sanctions but McGloin decided to stick it out for his senior season under new coach Bill OBrien, who had previously been offensive co-ordinator for Tom Brady in New England. "Not too many kids go through something like that," he said. "Ive seen it all. Ive overcome many different types of adversity. In a way it has helped me at this level." McGloin had his best year under OBrien, throwing for 3,266 yards and 24 touchdowns with only five interceptions in leading the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 record. "Hes a smart guy," OBrien said. "Smart guys that work hard, that have some talent, they really thrive in that league. They really do. I think hell thrive in that league." But few NFL teams believed the same thing as McGloin was not invited to the scouting combine, leading him to send out a video to all 32 NFL teams which began with him saying, "My entire life has been defined by the words Youll never make it. So hard work is not new to me." McGloin cited his upbringing in Scranton and experience at Penn State as reasons why he should get a chance in the NFL. That came to fruition in May when he worked out for the Raiders and earned a contract. "It shows the type of person he is, the character and determination that hes not going to let someone tell him what he cant do," said Titans coach Mike Munchak, a Scranton and Penn State product who has followed McGloins career. "Im sure when he went to Penn State a lot of people said he should have done something else. Obviously, he worked his way through it."
