    Default Durant wanted to play for the Raptors

    Just to get the blood boiling on this forum, Kevin Durant was on The Dan Patrick Show this morning and Dan Patrick asked him which team he wanted to play for growing up. I shit you not, he said the Raptors. Don't believe me click this link http://www.danpatrick.com/2013/01/17...and-his-skins/ and skip to about the 4:10 mark.

    Just goes to show what kind of impact VC had on Toronto. His fans which looked up to him are now stars and we've not seen another player of his calibre since he left.

    he is the exception not the rule. It is refreshing to see an open minded (superstar) athlete for once.

    Durant has said in some interviews that the raptors were one of his fav teams growing up.

    What got my blood boiling was the smirk on the dj's face and the evil laugh as soon as Durant said "Toronto Raptors"

    Idiot.

    Yeah, caught that too. A-hole. People seem to forget that the Raps were an exciting up and coming team back then. When VC was at his prime, Raps were a regular feature in USA Today sports section. Even Kobe has stated multiple times that if the Raps kept T-Mac and VC together and stayed healthy, he is sure they would have won multiple championships. Can't really argue with that.

    He isn't the only one. Many current NBA players watched the Raptors during the Carter years and looked up to him. So yes - I am not surprised at all. I mean - why are most of us raptors fans anyway ... I believe the majority of RR posters who are a little bit older became raptors fans precisely because Carter and the team we had back then.

    Yup. I became a Raps fan because of Carter.

    Originally was a Rockets/Sonics fan. Still follow the Rockets and i hope the NBA returns to Seattle.

    He can wear whatever number he wants. Carter never got his jersey retired and doesn't deserve to.

    that was a great find. That host made me want to choke him when me broke out laughing. Not cool. But funny he said he thought the Uniform was cool.

    'when asked if he still wanted to be a raptor today, Durant started to laugh hysterically. Paramedics had to be called in as Durant started to choke from the excess laughter'

    All kidding aside, we were an organically talented team with huge upside the way we see OKC now. But if Durant turns in a little c*nt, we can just call them Raps 2.0. Don't see that happeneing though because one would never question his work ethic.
