    Sorry, I cannot separate what beats inside one's chest from the exterior skillset.

    VC deep down was an asshole and set this franchise back irreparably with his actions.

    In Vince's 20 games leading up to the trade, his numbers were:

    16 pts, 3 asts, 3 rebs, 69% FT, 32% 3s, 41% FG

    In Vince's 57 games following the trade, his numbers were:

    27 pts, 5 asts, 6 rebs, 82% FT, 42% 3s, 46% FG

    Night and day.
    What's funny is that Vince's "I suck, I'm not trying anymore" numbers are on par with DeRozan's numbers :|

    i agree totally but we dont need to retire his jersey to honor it..Retiring it also meens retiring his number...im not for that at all that should be left for true greats like MJ & Magic... but u can still honor it by raising to the rafters..much the way the leafs have done for Mats..

    & i think VC will go to the hall aswell... he is after all the most prolific dunker the league has ever seen..& his carreer numbers are actually fairly good. maybe i need to lay off the kush but still LOL
    I will be surprised if VC makes the Hall. His numbers are good, but not elite. When you're numbers aren't elite, you better have rings and/or be well liked/respected. VC has none of those things. The Hall, for better or worse, is voted and a lot of people, outside of Toronto as well, didn't like the way he handled his exit.

    Of course he says he wants his jersey retired. It'll make him feel like he accomplished something, when he's really just a lazy piece of shit. I swear if the Raptors retire his jersey i will never watch another raptors game again
    Agreed. It would be nice for the raptors to establish some history, but some history is better forgotten

    He's just trying to line up his next payday. "Whats the name of that canadian team again?.. that right, the raptors. Tell my agent to give them a call, because I'm starting to get old as shit."

    Hell no. Fuck carter. We don't retire a jersey till we win a damn championship, i feel like slapping anyone who suggests we retire his jersey.

    dont forget the Rookie of the year & all-star selections.. i agree with most that VC screwed up big time..but the fact is Babcock made a fantastic mess of things in his time here & he's to blame too..we still havent made it back to respectability all these years later.. he royaly fucked us with the VC deal..
    I agree, it turned into a big shit show. I just don't think he did enough to merit a retired jersey. If he stayed, who knows...

    Like most said, retiring his jersey tell everyone what greatness means in toronto. Winning a dunk contest, getting to the second round of the playoffs.

    I don't think there is anything left that Vince (et all) can say that will change anyone's minds anymore. It's so far in the past that people who haven't forgiven him by now never will.

    Truthfully I think his jersey should be retired, but for obvious reasons it never will because that ceremony would just be one ugly mess of idiots booing the greatest Toronto Raptor of all time. Can you imagine how embarrassing that would be for the city of Toronto if that were televised nationally?

    whats funny with those numbers it shows how a "injury prone & lazy" SG named VC can grab more rebounds per then a 7footer drafted first overall LOL

    hate him or love him he did put Raptors on the map.. & is still the most dynamic player weve had..he helped us to our only playoff wins & was ROTY & Dunk Champ in our jersey...i dont think we should retire his number or anything but i do think honoring his jersey much like Mats Sundin is Fitting..after all Mats never won shit in T.O either..& left on a sour note too albeit not as bad as VC departure..personally i think Bosh's exit was WAY worse...at least we had the opportunity to trade VC..it was Babcock who fucked all that up for us..
