Default Raps vs. Nets - VC returns..

I don't know why but I just feel kind of hyped about this game, like I hope we dominate and send Wince a message. I know we will have a ton of problems containing Harris and to a lesser extent VC, but I think we have some good matchups on the other side as well.

Projected starting lineups:
Raptors:
Jose Calderon
Anthony Parker
Andrea Bargnani
Chris Bosh
Jermaine O'neal

Nets:

Devin Harris
B. Simmons
Vince Carter
Yi
Brook Lopez

my prediction is that JO will give Vince a hard foul on a drive in the first quarter and Vince will shoot jumpshots for the rest of the night.

Raps in a blowout.

If JO oblittered Vince on a drive to the basket I will go out and purchase his jersey tommorow. He`s alreayd moving up the ranks of my favorite Raptors...that would push him into the very top tier.

That's basically the story right there.

If Bosh and O'Neal can dominate the Nets' inexperianced and less talented frontcourt, we should be able to win as long as Harris and Carter don't embarass our guards.

Shouldn't miss much, I'm kinda glad they got the Nets tonight this won't be anything special to watch. I've already seen Vince back at the ACC on the Nets. Non-stop booing but its been played out too much now. MVP common..

I think most Raptors fans should be over the entire VC drama by now. I mean, we've all moved on. Plus, VC is on the decline and it's pretty much safe to say that he's passed his prime. Also, Nets are going nowhere this year. I am still expecting some angry fans at the ACC but it shouldn't be nearly as bad as 2-3 years ago.

The only thing I want to see in this game is Yi Jianlian scoring over 20 points. Other than that, GO Raptors Go.

Consider how passionate Raptors fan been since the beginning, what vc did was pretty unforgivable. Yes here we go again so why dont you stop telling us what to do since Yao Ming will never be MVP and this year he just flat out stink!

VC will be boo-ed everytime he comes into ACC period!

First of all, Yao Ming does not stink and if he stayed healthy the past two seasons, he would have been a candidate for MVP, though he wouldn't have won it.

Second of all, living in the past does nothing. Go ahead and boo carter and watch him work harder and score 39 points like hed did yesterday as he gets excited by the crowd.

Last but not least, I wasn't telling people what to do, I stated my opinion that it is better to move on.
