Oak and Mugsy are both great picks. At his best, AD was pretty tough. He mixed it up with the best bigs around and he's only really 6'9". Also, Mark Jackson was pretty tough.

Hey, all these guys played at the same time! Crazy. That was a pretty tough team!

Oakley by far. "Pimpin’ ain’t easy, pimpin’ ain’t dead, the ho’s are just scared.”

Haha, that still cracks me up till this day.

Davis is second. Although I would describe him as more warrior like then tough guy.

This could be physical or mental. Either way im going with Carlos Rogers, he always played physicall and always fought for each inch on the flloor. Not to mnetion the tragic situation that he endured regarding his kidney and his sister need it.

ohh and GARTH JOSEPH!!!!

how the hell do you go 10 posts in...and not mention, imo, the greatest raptor...ever. his knees were shot, he was a throw in in the damon trade, he was a nobody. come to find out he was a cold blooded jump shooter in the 4th and absolutely locked down everyone he played against. an absolute beast. had to drag him off the court every game.

Because Oak was the toughest and I am not listing a top 5 list or anything.

oak by far.. yes alvin had the heart to play through pain and give his all but i don't think we're talking about that kind of tough, oak was the guy you wanted to meet your enemy in a dark alley

Yep. Oak is toughest. I just threw a couple of other names out there. Alvin was tough too, but I'm not sure there will ever by another Raptor as tough as the Oak tree. He was from a different era. And a different planet.

By toughest, do you mean a person who plays every game at 110%. A person does everything their asked to do - score, defend, rebound, set screens, etc. A person takes whats even to him, whether it be 1 minute or 48 minutes. A person who was excepted to be a leader, compliment, and the overall glue guy. A person who plays through injury and pain, and leaves it out on the court every night. Well, if thats the guy your looking for - I'm a little disappointed that Oak, Alvin, Davis, Willis (all of whom were great for the Raptors) made it above the former "Iron Man" of the NBA.

2006-2007 season - he came off the bench for the last 42 seconds and made the game winning 3 point shot - 1 for 1. Probably my favourite Raptor momment - I knocked over my beer and didn't even care.

Toughest Raptor Hands down = Morris Peterson.

Followed by: Alvin, Oak, Doug Christie and believe it or not, Chris Bosh. Remember when he sprained his knee - 2 weeks, back on the court with his brace on. If it was "a Former dunk champion who shall remain nameless", he would have been done for 3 seasons.

Alvin Williams no question

He was physically tough (enduring pain and playing through injuries)
PLUS
He played a tough game in terms of defence and driving.

i was just talking with my friend 2 weeks ago, that if we had a player like charles oakley, he can make bosh into a better player.

charles is one of the most underrated raptor of all time.

and i know this doesn't mean much, but i thought it was funny when a week ago, we drafted jawai. on nbadraft.net, his player comparison was charles oakley.

LOOOL I hear you!!!
That was ridiculous.

You know who was pretty rugged too...
Alvin Robertson.

But Oak takes the cake for punching Clippers guard Jeff McInnis.
AHAhaha...
