    Default Congrats Mo Pete

    So Mo Pete seems to be heading to the Michigan State U hall of fame. Good for him. He was pretty big for them in his time there and had a prosperous NBA career after. Solid player. Great guy. Congrats Mo Pete!

    I can live with that, fair comment. Didn't mean to take the air out of the Mo Pete love in, seriously, my bad.

    I guess my initial reaction was more just a gut feel I have about how much we have been forced to fall in love with sub par talent in this town. Mo Pete was a cool guy, worked hard, cared, all that great stuff. He just wasn't that good.

    How many players in Raps history can we really say all that about? Plus he was a great value pick at 21st overall in a weak draft. Most of good players were high draft picks who should have been really good. Mo Pete was the workman who produced and gave it all for the team. The franchise would be better off with more like him.

    It's not like he's being inducted into anything that huge. He's just getting into MSU's own athletics hall of fame. It's just nice recognition for his time there, especially since he was critical to their championship run, and he's a Michigan native. It's unlikely he'd ever get honoured in any bigger way.

    Do you guys think his jersey should be up in the ACC rafters?

    And where is he now? Last time i checked OKC signed him. Is he still playing or about to retire??

    That sucks. Maybe he has one last good season left in him, the Raptors should get him like what they did with Magloire so he can retire as a Raptor.

    Please, no one suggest any Raptor has a jersey retired ever again.

    Or at least until a HoF-worthy player accomplishes something significant while with the franchise. (Note: Making the second round does not count.)

    Whats wrong with suggesting such things?

    Hanging a jersey in the rafters does not connote huge stats, championships, etc. Teams can retire player jerseys/numbers based on other factors not just stats or achievements.

    Just slapping Vince deserves a spot in the rafters, IMO.

    If you'd left it at "seriously, my bad", some degree of sincerity may have been taken "seriously". The subsequent paragraph is a bloody expansion upon your original grumpy comment. So which is it? You "didn't mean to take the air out of the Mo Pete love in", or you mean to take more air out? Confusing.

    As far as "we have been forced to fall in love with sub par talent in this town", who is forcing you? You do understand that being a fan of a team is a choice, right? You sound like some spoiled, self-entitled brat who mistakenly believes he has earned more than players giving their all,,,,,, unless you're actually being forced that is.

    I can barely stand reading half the comments to any of the threads anymore.

    So many pessimistic dick-heads trying to kill anyones good vibe.

    Hahahaha, that was a great moment for sure.

    But a jersey retired? Not sure about that. But what if a wing of the ACC was filled with glass cases containing game-worn shoes of the most endearing members of the franchise? Seems like a good way to acknowledge their contributions, without going whole-hog and retiring the jerseys of lesser players.

    Plus, there's the possible added bonus of NOT having Vince's shoes there.

    Or T-Mac's, for that matter.

    The stipulation could be, "the player must have played at least half their career in a Raptors' jersey."
