The marriage between Vince Carter and the Toronto Raptors was a beautiful one – at least during a point in time. Unfortunately, it eventually turned sour and Carter became a villain to some. He knows this, but he doesn’t hold it against anybody and remembers that the vast majority of his time in Toronto was a good one.
Carter, who rose to fame with the Raptors and led them to their first playoff victory reflected on his time with the franchise recently and seemingly remembered it with fondness.
“I remember when Vinsanity started, from an article [in the newspaper],” Carter said. “I remember when Half-Man, Half-Amazing started.
“I remember making the first basket here in history [at Air Canada Centre]. You can’t change that. Winning rookie of the year here, you can’t change that. Winning that dunk contest and putting Toronto on the [basketball] map, you can’t change that. Those are all historical to me. I put all three of those as one.”
Carter went on to gush about his time in Toronto – especially during his first few seasons.
Somewhere Tracy McGrady sits jealous in a corner.
