He'd do better than what Landry Fields is giving them now.

Raptors haven't had a decent SF since Vince left.

Thread title is absolutely misleading. At no time does Vince say he WANTS to do it, he says if the opportunity were to represent itself he wouldn't mind it.

Saying he WANTS to makes him sound slightly more desperate and like he'll try and do it. Chances are he'd only do it if Toronto actually wanted him and he couldn't find a solid role on a contender.

I'd have no bitter feelings about him being back here. It would be eerie feeling, but I don't have anything against the man nowadays.

Plus, I would rather anybody play the 3 spot over Landry Fields right now.

That f*cking layup disaster last night was reprehensible.

I seriously got sick to my stomach when I saw that. Landry looked lost as shit.

I would take him back. Growing up in the t-dot during the VC prime era was incredible the crowds that would be at the away games the ooo’ss and aaahh’s from the fans. He put the t-dot on the map. That was the last time The raptors had a nationally televised game. If it were up to me I would hang his number 15 in the rafters. He did quit on us but he should go down as the greatest dunker to ever play. And for him to be acknowledged as a raptor is awesome. i wish we stopped booing the guy he had his charity based in toronto had the vc basketball camp. is always doing things for charities. T-dot fans get to butt-hurt about guys leaving.

I would love to see it. My favorite player back from his days in Toronto. He's 35 but still would be upgrade over Landry Fields. Do it BC.

He didn't say "I want to retire a Raptor" ... that would show desire.

He said he'd be open to it, aka he wouldn't mind but wouldn't stress about it.

Big difference. Misleading thread title.

Didn't he fake injuries and refuse to play to force them to trade him?
