Well, it has officially come to an end. MoPete is no longer a Raptor. MoPete will be wearing one of the worst unis in the league next season as a Hornet. This is a sad day for me (and should be for every Raptors fan out there). I have already commented on it, but it hurt seeing Kapono holding up a #24 jersey the other day in his press conference. Couldn’t they have just had him hold up the front of the jersey until MoPete had signed somewhere else? Couldn’t that have been the last bit of respect they paid him? I dunno…
MoPete was a class act his whole time in Toronto, even down to when he wasn’t getting playing time. He never disrupted the team and was a team guy to the core. We will never see circus shots like his again.
Anyway, I hope MoPete continues to have great success in the NBA and that he has a real impact on the Hornets. They couldn’t have picked up a better guy. Click here to see a great compilation of some of MoPete’s better plays.
I’m gonna go down an MGD in honour of MoPete.
