I know what people are thinking, another VC bashing thread, but I just saw this poll on Raptors.com and I thought the results were interesting.
The question was about the favorite moment.
Vince Carter's 50 point game vs. Philly in the 2001 playoffs
First playoff game vs. New York in 2000
Raptors clinch playoff spot in 2002
First ever game at Air Canada Centre in 1999
Not that it means that fans still love VC or anything, but it does show that we appreciate what he did for the franchise and Canada, there's no denying it. I know for myself, as much as I like Bosh, my favorite Raptors moments have been with VC... although he was also a part of a lot of my least favorite moments. Anyways, as for right now, Raps are on the rise and VC is on the decline, rapidly, so there's a new era.
