    VC is way past his prime.. it's nice to see highlights of one good game from him but where are the highlights for every other game when he is not playing well? VC tries only when he wants to. He is exactly the opposite the type of guy I want to play for the Raptors.

    You definitely need to get off the pot.

    Although, it was a bit of a throwback game for VC, he's explosiveness is definitely down, and this was against the Washington Wizards. 1 good game is never a good reason to sign a player. I seen enough mavs games to know that he quite regularly disappears.

    It looked good to me.

    The 1st dunk, he was lucky he did not Gerald Green his finger. However, as the game progressed, he kept getting higher and higher, that last tomahawk was impressive. I thought he looked great, not sure how often that happens, I mean Pietrus had a game with us that made him look remarkable.



    I am not going to lie, I am VERY INTERESTED in getting him back in the ACC, I sometimes wonder if the nostalgia will be enough motivation to give him a little extra spring. I hate Bosh much more than VC, at least VC was clear about what he wanted. Bosh strung our entrie fan base along to advence his own interest.

    Our fans gave a lot to Bosh, and he shat on them. Hope he has a career ending injury, hope a teammate finds his misus captivating.

    I'm pretty sure he would come join us in a heartbeat given a chance. He probably much rather join an improving Raptors team than a shitty degrading Mavericks team...

    Honestly, if Vince couldn't dunk I'd be more surprised. Now that would be a story.

    You backstab me and I will hunt you down to the end of the earth. Call it pathetic, but I havn't been pulling too many daggers lately. Let the other trees get pissed on.


    No... I don't have very much love for Bosh. If he cared about the market, he couldof told Bryan to trade him. He used this fanbase, and I would much rather stand shoulder to shoulder with Vince Carter, than a kiss blowing RuPaul.

    Like Vince did, in public, so all other opposing GM's knew that he had checked out and wasn't interested in being a Raptor anymore. And then Babcock gets blamed for making a crappy deal. I don't have any love for Babcock's basketball brain, but there's not much you can do when everybody knows your player is insisting on a trade.

    Lets see... there were quite a few salvo's fired before Vince asked for his trade. Like getting into a PUBLIC bickering match about a parking spot that his mother used at the ACC. How much could it be worth compared to the disrespect that sort of stuff brings with it? Seriously, what kind of a loser with a napoleon complex gets on your mother over a parking spot when at the same time they dont mind paying you millions. I would of told Babcock to fuck himself too, that sort of treatment would not fly with me at all. Babcock was a mental midget, and not a single ACC employee felt confidence in him after the reign.

    The idiot, even called up the 76'ers, after it was obvious that Hoffa was a disaster and asked if they felt like exchanging for Igudalla who he passed on. The GM, on the other line thought he was out of his mind.
    '



    In fact, Vince resigned at his PEEK, when many felt he should bolt to the USA for the spotlight.



    One day, you are getting the private Jet, the next day your mother is being refused from her parking spot. I can't even begin to tell you how stupid and unproffesional that sort of mangment style is.


    Who the fuck plays mind games with their employees like this? (Mangmement at the time never wanted Vince to stay. Sam even reported to Babcock that Vince was on board, he is tired of fighting will do what the franchise wants, come of the bench, even play point guard... but Rob said it was too late, the deal was getting finalized that weekend - Rob did everything in his power to make Vince want out. He came to our franchise, liquidated our best asset, and left - we got fucked, I don't want to hear the low lifes name again)
