The Toronto Raptors’ all-time leading scorer is perennial All-Star power forward Chris Bosh.

For his last five seasons in Toronto from 2005 to 2010, Bosh averaged more than 22 points per game and earned All-Star selections in each of them. He is a great skilled big man with the ability to score from inside and outside, in the post, on the drive, and with a good lefty jumpshot. Now a member of the Heat, Bosh left Toronto with a career 20.2 points per game scoring average.
