Vince Carter to be honored by the Toronto Raptors?

This caught my eye in the Sentinel and its been running around the basketball blogsphere and message boards all morning:

 

Right Here in the Sentinel

Raptors fans with long memories didn't get the chance to boo Magic SG Vince Carter, who was scratched with an injury on Sunday.

But that opportunity might come Nov. 22 at Air Canada Centre when the player who demanded out of Toronto after six-plus seasons will be ... honored by the franchise as part of their 15th anniversary celebration.

The Raptors say they will first ask Carter if he wants to go through with a ceremony, realizing the back-story.

"Everybody wants to know how we can do it, but Vince is part of the history here," Raptors General Manager Bryan Colangelo told the Sentinel. "Most of the people that he had problems with here are gone."

But it's the fans who have booed Carter each time he has returned since the Raptors dealt him to the New Jersey Nets in 2004.

 

 


Oh Canada so forgiving. If the Suns, Raptors and Pistons can honor outcas franchise players will Orlando do the same for the 25th anniversary?
