    "Imagine a time....a place....where Vince Carter...didn't whine and fake injuries, and sulk on the bench, covered in Gatorade towels"

    I loved Vince, still do, but all this reminiscing is getting a little bit much. Like we lost one of the greats of our generation..we lost a guy with all the talent in the world that never used it for anything of impact his whole career. Move on.

    Seems like a weird thing to pay a GM so much money to come in and then force him to bring in a complimentary player like Vince at this point in his career.

    The timing and of course the Rodgers/MLSE/Sportsnet connection made me think the same thing. It just seems like the type of production for a retired player, not someone with a few years left in the ****.

    I think he'd be a great story retiring here, winning the cup baby.

    Whats the lineup look like with he and Lebron aboard?

    I'm not on board unless we sign T-Mac and JYD for our playoff run.

    Just thinking 'bout Vince's Home Coming brings tears to my eyes.
    Please Please Please come back
    end the legacy right where it began

    Like Craig says there's a reason sportsnet's putting this out there
    #HOMECOMING
    I dont even care if he's not Canadian like TT said he was our MJ and still is

    every single time that he stepped on to that allstar floor with the words TORONTO on his chest
    if only he would....

    That does seem especially random. Why would they choose now to rehab Vince's legacy in toronto? He's still playing. Has he become that irrelevant? I guess so. Still seems odd.

    If Vince can tell us why he was justified to act like a little B*tch back in 04, I will stop hating his guts and wanting him to go to hell

    Wow. Pretty strong words.

    Question, 1999-2003. When Vince was "Half Man Half Amazing" how old were you back then?? and what do you remember the most about Vince back in those years??

    I think this re-imagination stuff is in line with the rebranding. I think it's part of it.

    Hmmm conspiracy guy says, Durant grew up a fan of VC and the Raps... could TL, MU, Drake, a re-branding, an all-star game and, most importantly, a VC homecoming help lure Durant in 2016? Would that be enough for every Raptors fan to finally forgive VC?!?

    I was a huge Vince fan from the start but he handcuffed this franchise. His trade is one of the worst of all time. A player of his calibre got traded for virtually nothing and that is partly Babcock's fault but Vince immediately started playing like we all knew he could as soon as he got to NJ. I'm not out for revenge or anything but let's not ignore the latter when it comes to forgiving and forgetting. He did a lot for this franchise, but I watched A LOT of terrible games after his departure and that's what I'll remember him for. Incredible talent, incredibly wasted.
    There's math, and everything else is debatable.

    I think what you meant to say was:
