Vince is just a ESPN highlight player nothing he does help wins ball games ,T- Mac likes to keep that in the family he just does it better. Lots of points a few highlights and team still goes home after first round. You can have both

You can't go wrong with either guy, Vince Carter is a great at teamwork while Tracy McGrady can play multiple positions on the court and do well in them.

VC's problem is just not enough motivation, he had it with Charles Oakley being on his ass a lot.

T-Mac is just too cocky to me, his overconfidence sometimes leads him into his downfall and it shames him. When this happens, he lacks motivation too.

t-mac even though he strung along the raps into thinking they had a chance to sign him, at least he's not a whining quitter like carter, i'll never lose the image of one of the most talented players in the league, just mail it in, and quit on his teammates, quit on the organization that gave him anything and everything he ever wanted, and as well the fans that supported him with undying loyalty. Vince's antics set this team back 5 years in it's development, just think if he played even close to his proper level, we could of dealt him for a package that would of at least helped this team recover from losing the foundation of the franchise. I still find it unfathomable that any true raps fan could still support vince carter, after what he did to this organization.

The Raptors wanted to keep McGrady. He ditched them, not the other way around.

T-Mac. Even when he doesn't "try" he gave Orlando 28 ppg, Vince, not so much.

Right now, If you had to pick, most would pick Vince, he hasn't missed very many games over the past season and a half, TMac has. I can really tell you whos the better player, they both do a lot of the same things, so whoevers healthier is better...

I would have choose T-Mac. He's more talented than VC.
Some people might disagree but I think RJ has emerged to be a better player than Carter.

T-Mac all day and on tuesdays, with a healthy back which sorry to say may never happen.

Vince straight quit his team in toronto and basically dropped his value so low toronto couldn't get anything out of him. He went from constant injuries and his production was crap. he admitted he quit and everyone knew it, went to NJ and became the old vince he was before which is pretty damn good, '' still a punk''.

Now some may say T-Mac quit too and admitted it. difference is T-Mac led leauge in scoring, didn't drop his roduction down 10 pts a game to get his value low and then traded.
