So Vince Carter was back in town last night - he now plays for Atlanta - and he got a rousing standing ovation when he entered the game.
I never understood the thing about Vince Carter. He played here for I think 6 years - 15 years ago. He left on very bad terms. Full credit to the fanbase here for forgiving him (I guess).
But I never thought he was that great of a player - at least compared to his reputation. He was flashy at times. He could slam dunk when he felt like it. Hooray. But I dunno, did he ever finish top 5 in an MVP vote? Top 10? Did he ever make it past the second round of the playoffs? Ever with anyone?
A lot of people are lobbying to have his number retired by the Raptors.
No. How bush league do you have to be where you are retiring numbers of guys who played on your team for 6 years and got you to the second round once?
