I didn't see anything. I was looking at my watch.

Great memories.  It doesn’t matter what any Raptors fan says, Vince Carter put Canada’s team on the map with his iconic dunking prowess that revolutionized the game and created a new higher standard (watch the 2000 Dunk Contest or any highlight reel featuring VC on YouTube to see what I mean).  He may have left a sour taste in the mouths of Raptor die-hards, but we can’t devalue what he gave the city of Toronto.  He took the franchise as deep as it has ever gone.  It is sad that his accomplishments as a Raptor are often overshadowed in the minds of fans by the way he chose to convey his character throughout his final months in purple and red.  This is not how we should choose to remember Vince - though most of us do.  Next time he visits the ACC, whenever that is, I hope he gets the respect that he deserves.  Without him, how do basketball fans outside Canada perceive the Raptors?  People have to learn to give respect where respect is deserved.  Hopefully the continued hostility toward Chris Bosh will allow Raptors fans to reflect positively on the time he played for the Raptors.  Thanks VC.
