    Default Anyone remember Sixer's VS Rap's game 7 last minute shot

    Sorry guys to open old wounds but this shot instantly reminded me of what coulda and shoulda been way back in 2001. Not a game 7 but in the same corner, game on the line and no time left *sigh*

    Took long enough but VC gets playoff redemption

    MixxAOR Very true. I guess I subconsciously blocked that shot against the Raps out of my memory lol

    Jason Kidd got a teabag in there at the end lol

    It's not about the shot Vince couldn't make for us, but could with Dallas; rather, the pass Jose couldn't make for us, but could with Dallas.

    Even now I watch that clip over and over and can't believe how close bosh came to having a wide open lay up/dunk for the win. Brings back memories of doing that over and over again then.
    It's not just about Lowry...It's about the 3 spot.

    RepTdot - I knew it looked crazy similar. Imagine if VC hit that shot for us back in 01'. Im pretty sure the city would have gone ape shi t about the Raptors and about basketball and the franchise would have taken a different path.

    Red and White - good catch. Jose gets redeemed too with a second chance at that last minute pass. Interesting how two ex-raptors get a second chance at something that was probably haunting them for years. All in one play - awsome.

    Actually its not. As Vince has recalled the play, he was actually supposed to get the ball up top, but someone was in the wrong place, which forced him to go to the Wing and be matched with Hill.

    Great shot against Spurs though. Love Vince.

    I wanna still hate Vince, but I just don't have much hate left. He's been gone for 10 years, so it doesn't really matter to me anymore. Good job for him hitting that shot though, I'm actually kinda happy for him.

    I agree man, I watched him hit that shot live tv and was happy for him...all the years later, I appreciate the fact that VC is still the best player to wear the jersey to date, that his best days were with our jersey on, that he saved the franchise from going down the same path of the Vancouver Grizzlies, that he put Toronto on the map to the rest of the league, that he inspired a generation of Canadian ballers that we are seeing now and made Toronto everyone's "2nd team" for a good few years...the way he left the team I blame bad MLSE management & Rob Babcock (aka the raptor killer) and even if he had a role in it, I'm so over it and the rest of this city should move forward too. I would welcome him back here in a 6th man/veteran presence role next season and would love him to retire a raptors with #15 in the stands one day. He just redeemed his missed shot from 13 years ago, next up is redeeming his relationship with the fans & this city from that same period.

    If you blame management that's fine, they obviously have to bear some of it. RB was atrocious, the management was a mess, the coaches were a literal carousel. But to absolve VC? By demanding a trade just before the season started ( i.e. after the draft, the FA period etc) and then ABSOLUTELY tanking it for the first 6-7 weeks to force a trade? Cmon now. We've all had bad workplace situations but VC punked the city and it's fans with his prima donna act and total non commitment to defence, weak ass "injuries", terrible shot selection, indifferent attitude and then quitting on guys who'd done all his dirty work for years. Fuck VC. This was a made shot. Similar yes, but not the same shot/situation etc and it's not redemptive IMO.
    LET'S GO RAP-TORS!!!!!
