    Yes, Carroll initially earned his JYD moniker and then he lost it quickly after he got paid (by us), happily exchanging that persona for frilly pirate inspired designer outfits... aka Swag Daddy. As a Raptor, DeMarre's main mentoring consisted of teaching his teammates where to go on expensive shopping trips on the road. Fakest JYD ever.
    Ty that's summed up all I wanted to say. Carroll was ultimately responsible for Masai philosophy shift whereby he isn't going to overpay a lot of money no more for a roleplayer on the open market, either will get them for reasonable short term deal or he will create our own home grown one thru the draft or the g league.

    • Carroll sucked here but he did have a good enough career to get that contract. I think he'll be a decent coach.

        Thank you Demarre Carroll.

        We, the Raptors fanbase, thank you for the example you showed and the lesson it taught Masai, so early in his career as the best GM/President ever. We can never repay you for what you have given us.

          Often facebook has memories pop up and 13 years ago went golfing and the biggest story to happen that weekend was getting Hedo Turkoglu .. That weekend we had quite the debate weather that was good news or bad news .. I had to look it up and he really only lasted less then 2 years . Funny how that signing was so memorable for me ie knew where I was when
          it happened .

            Hedo was a big signing at the time. Pretty similar to the Carroll signing where we overpaid for a role player coming off a good season

            My main memory from the Hedo era was "ball"
