I brought this up last season and still feel it would be a viable option especially if Vince is willing to take $2 million or less a season. Should he have to apologize? I don't know if you think so then shouldn't Babcock have to as well given he still won't admit THAT trade was the worst in history.
In the larger picture if you watched the recent Open Court segment with Dr. J, Dominique, Charles, Steve Kerr, Steve Smith, Brent Barry, Kenny Smith, TMac etc almost all of them placed Vince as one of the best dunkers EVER alongside MJ, Dr. J and Nique. Some even placed him as the best!
For me personally I feel Toronto needs to forgive and forget in order for the franchise to begin building a legacy of sorts. After watching how Boston treated Garnett and Pierce upon their return and thinking of the history they have I found myself thinking what if Toronto never forgive Vince and we never end up getting to claim the pride we felt in his early days or during that dunk competition.
Let's not forget VC still has the ability to change a game and I'm pretty confident we'd see a very different Vince this time round should he return. I think we'd lose something on defense from Salmons but I think we'd gain on offense with the occasional outburst from him that could win games outright. He still is adept at passing, creating shots for himself and others and I just can't help but see him filling the role of a Dell Curry type from those glory days but with better handles and defensive capabilities.
Just imagine if he comes back next season for a two year stint and then during the 2016 All Star game Toronto gets to re-live and REVEL in the infamous dunk contest that in essence made our neighbors south of the border recognize we were even on the map! Worth the price of admission? I'd say YES. Or imagine Toronto continue to ascend in the Eastern Conference, would you want to bet against Vince missing a last second shot given I'm sure THAT shot still haunts him to this day. Having seen him single handedly win games for New Jersey, Orlando, Phoenix and Dallas against us and others I think he still is driven to rise to those spotlight occasions. If you think I'm wrong explain why a 37 year old Carter even bothered dunking against DeRozan in Toronto recently.
