I guess Raptor management was supposed to know that Vince would suddenly become seriously injury prone and decline, while T-mac would go from a 15point scoring side kick to top 5 for a stretch and now comfortably a top 10(when healthy) player?
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
The Raps had them both, and IMO, they blew it. Who should they have kept, and why.
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.
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...
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.
