its not like the raps were, or ever will be contenders.

you'd think they would learn after vc keeps punishing them every time they meet.


I don't think you understand exactly what happened. Zo was the reason why the VC deal sucked for the Raptors. Zo was included in the deal to go to the raptors, but instead he decided to be unprofessional about it and just not show up at all. You have to realize that these guys are playing a game for a living, and they're making millions doing it. They don't have a choice where they play.

It is sad to see Zo go... on the other hand if he had come back for another season... how many minutes?

To slightly change the subject. What about Zo as a Hall of Famer? Does his unfortunate illness during the prime of his career hurt his chances? Without that a definate lock.

n00bie is correct about the Toronto situation. Selfish Zo didn't want to play there. He didn't show for work so he forced a trade. Sure lots of athletes do this but it does not make it right. Cash your check for millions, shut up and play.
