    For a team thats only 16 years old, we've got one hell of a History.

    Can't wait to see what the next 20 bring.


    This article is now pretty old (2006); So whats missing from the last 5 years??

    Yeah, the Flagrancy is a funny blog. I reference them here when ever I can get a opportunity to do so. To bad they don't keep it active anymore.

    I took a look at a few, nice reminder of the "good old days". If I were to add one off the top of my head it would probably be our loss to Golden State to give Nellie the most wins as a coach title. Ya the one where Bosh blew a gimme of a lay-up that would have won us the game...

    The same game that was in the last 10 games of the season (I think 5th last?) when we were one win away from going to the playoffs?

    I believe that's the one. Definitely worthy of a place in the list.

    Hedo's "Ball" comments & VC's "Dunking is over rated" comments should be on there for sure...

    IDK... I like the name and the logo. I think this list is flawed.

    It's a known fact, the only reason 'The Raptors' was chosen, was because Jurassic Park was popular at the time...

    Not saying I like, or dislike it. But thats pretty hilarious.

    ADD: And the list isn't flawed just because you disagree with it. :P haha Its obviously one bloggers opinion.

    Obviously Chris Bosh leaving for the Super 3, has to be on the list, and fairly high up, I would imagine.

    And the 3(4?) times that Vince hit game winning/tying 3 pointers against us.

    I don't know about "Cool like Ice" but Hedo deserves at least one spot on any revised list. He and Bosh deserve top twenty spots.

    The Hedo signing and the Jermaine O'Neal saga would both be on an updated list. The Jermaine O'Neal deal fits perfectly because, not only was the trade a failure, the trade to get rid of him allowed Miami to have enough cap space to sign Bosh. That's classic Raptors right there.

    Wouldn't you also have to include that MoPete shot in Washington? If he misses that, the Raptors likely end up playing an injury-riddled Wizards team in the first round that year and move on to the second round. Instead, they wind up playing the veteran Nets and go out in 6. That's something that could only happen to the Raps.

    I don't think it's the Hedo signing, I think it's Hedo's actions. When they signed the guy he had just had a career year and was a focal point on a team that went deep. It was a bad signing, no doubt in hindsight, but if Hedo had shown up and given the effort he gave the Magic he wouldn't be hated in Toronto and might still be playing here. We didn't know what we were in for.
