    That game where Jalen Rose and Skip refused to pass to each other. Completely ridiculous. Both should have been given the hook, sent back to the locker room, put under supervision and forced to work it out.

    And put Toronto on the map for alot of Young Players, and encouraged countless young Canadians to embrace the sport of Basketball.
    Cool. I thought the Ring of Excellence was retired numbers but I guess that is like a plaque.

    I'd still say no to Wince :P

    I'm pretty sure Dave Stieb, Tony Fernandez, Joe Carter, and George Bell are also retired.
    Alomar's No. 12 will be the first uniform number retired in the Blue Jays' 35-year history during an on-field ceremony on July 31 at Rogers Centre.

    "This is an honor that I was not expecting," Alomar said during a news conference on Tuesday evening at Rogers Centre. "I knew my numbers were worthy of consideration for the Hall of Fame, but for the Blue Jays to select my No. 12 to be the first number they retire is a great honor.

    Difference between VC and Alomar is Alomar has 2 world championship rings to show for his stay.

    ADD Blue Jays just retired Roberto Alomar's Number; it was the first number they've EVER retired.

    Vince should get that honour as a Raptor.

    Dude was unconscious. Ice running through his veins.

    The most insane dunk ever while Vince was a Raptor, I'm still in shock!

    Not really memorable from a Raptors POV, but this Iverson dunk on Camby is edged in my brain for some reason:

    Being said like that I could actually reconsider my statement.Maybe I just liked Chuck too much and caught Carter in his "I suck" days. But I definitely don't understate Vince's accomplishments not only for the city of Toronto but for basketball in general. Some(including myself) consider him as the best dunker in the history of the game. I just wish he had different mind set and better work ethic.
    he did... at the beginning.. there was a time that a little physical play didnt cause him to go into pouty pussy face mode and settle for jumpshots.. at one point he did have balls.

    VC is bittersweet. He was our best player ever. And, eventually, he was our biggest bitch ever.

    Best in game dunker in history ... VC ... amazing.
    -And maybe guys like DeMar wouldn't be so happy playing in Toronto if Vince (one of their favourite players) didn't put it on the map!

    Chuck was the best. I miss him a lot more than I miss Carter
    Though I do agree that Chuck was one-in-a-million, and he represented the franchise VERY well, (and I'd take him over Devlin in a heartbeat); what Vince Carter did for the City of Toronto, and Toronto Basketball (and Basketball in Canada even), can never, and should never, be understated.

    As someone who grew up with Vince Carter, day in and day out, I could NEVER miss Chuck more than I do him.
