    Default McGrady Disses Bosh; Says Toronto Fans Don't Know Why They're Even Booing.

    “They don’t. I’m telling you, they really don’t,” he said. “It’s not like I was like Chris Bosh in selling out the city — like the city was horrible or something ... making crazy comments about the city.

    “(In 2000), it was Toronto or going back home to Orlando. That’s pretty much it. I love the city. Everytime I come back, I really enjoy my time here.”

    Gotta agree, compared to Carter and Bosh, McGrady left on a good note.

    Been saying this for a while but fans in Toronto are really really stupid. And the media certainly doesn't help.

    all you'll hear from people tomorrow is "trade the whole team and start over!"

    It was actually nice to see t-mac go to work. I've always liked to watch him play.

    T-Mac was never a star until he went to Orlando. He showed flashes averaging 15 ppg in his last season in Toronto. I've got nothing against McGrady. He simply did what was better for him. Plus we already had Carter so he was blocking his development. Toronto fans in general will boo any past player. I'm surprised Charlie V didn't get booed. Leafs fans boo Brian McCabe...what for?

    Hey calm down, guys who average 15 ppg never get max contracts. He was a star, plain and simple. He was drafted 9th overall for a reason (in an era where high schoolers rarely went pro) and if the team sucked, he would have played more minutes. Unfortunately, they were competing and the defensive minded veterans got the PT.

    Matt Devlin also commented on how the Raptors were 10-18 coming into tonight and 11-17 at this time last year. He and Leo commented indirectly on how Bosh wasn't as much to the franchise as we all thought.

    Damn, can't argue that. He's totally right - as much as I wanted T-Mac to stay, he never dumped on the city after or admitted on tv he stopped trying his hardest on the floor. And I'm glad he recognizes how much of a bitch move it was for Bosh to say the stupid shit that he said about Toronto.

    Exactly!! Bosh was and is a bitch, handled leaving immaturely like a media whore, and then continued to say dumb ass stuff about Toronto, whereas McGrady never did anything to Toronto but leave to be closer to home, where he might get a chance to play and develop outside VC's shadow. McGrady if you remember was also being very poorly handled by the coach who should never have coached basketball.
    Booing McGrady is a classless act, while booing Bosh will be pure heaven!

    fans in this city are idiots

    they'd rather goto games just to boo people instead of showing the love for the game and showing respect to true all stars

    mcgrady didnt even use his option and let the raptors do a sign and trade

    no wonder people dont want to come to toronto to play, screw face capital confirmed

    my issue with the booing isnt that it happens... its that it doesnt happen enough

    it shouldn't be restricted to former raptors who left in less than favourable circumstances... it should apply to any player on the court who wants our team to lose.

    "home court advantage" isnt supposed to be "favoritism from the refs"... its supposed to actually mean something... you're SUPPOSED to be hated on the road.

    but im a throwback. ive been a fan since a hard foul was cracking a dude across the temple with your fist, and a flagrant meant you drew blood.

    Maybe we should cheer on the other teams instead? haha

    But honestly, saying we shouldn't boo teams is the dumbest thing ever. Do you even like sports?
    Eh follow my TWITTER!

    EXACTLY. its like people think this is figure skating or synchronized swimming. Booing the opposition is part of being a fan.

    maybe people are fans of the sport? and not just one team? like, are raptors games the only nba games you ever watch? no? why watch other teams if you dont like them?

    You have to be a real idiot to boo someone and not even know why. Maybe it's because he's related to Carter.
    Booing doesn't have the desired effect of throwing someone off their game.
    Look what happened when they booed LEbRON. It woke up a team that was playing terrible and ever since they've played fantastic.
