VC may be an idiot, but you can't really blame him for wanting to leave at the time. The Raptors were in a complete mess. The future didn't look promsing due to horrible draft picks among other decisions.

The Raptors couldn't move on as a franchise until they got rid of Vince Carter. Despite the fact the VC trade was as bad as trade could possibly be, we've finally been able to turn it around the last two seasons thanks to BC.

Clearly they were VERY wrong but it showed that Vince was still part of the plan for the Raptors.

Yeah basically. Don't remember any offers on the table, but we really should have traded down at least if we were just gonna draft the big body.

Didn't the Nets eliminate the Raps in the play-offs?

There was no reason to stay....both parties were better off splitting ways...and Arujo was just a bad pick no matter what duplicating roles was never a problem for Babcock he picked up Charlie V having BOSH....so having VC is not why he didn't take Iggy....he's just not very smart.

Jack McCloskey (sp?) is not very smart.

Ummm...he was the number one pick. Just like Yao. And unlike Yao, he was 18. Maybe stick around a year or two to see if he develops?

T-Mac and Carter are both idiots, not surprised that karma has bitten both of them in the rear end.

Why would he feel stupid? The Raptors franchise has won nothing he wasnt there for. Their greatest accomplishment is winning like 47 games and getting beat when it matters by the team Carter left for. They arent winning anything now with Boston and the Pistons in the east.

I doubt hes too bothered....

I've always said that T-mac's decision to leave was much worse. Sure, Carter may be a pansy, but that's just his nature. He left when the team sucked.

T-mac left when the team was on the up. Yes, he thought he was gonna team up with Hill, but he had a superstar on his team already and you knew they were only gonna get better as being one shot from making the ECF WITHOUT T-mac suggested. he was jealous and left. Dumb move.
