Hmm .... don't really know about that. We needed a PG and at that point Charlie was really our only asset. But, interesting read nevertheless and nice to hear about another ex-Raptor that misses Toronto.

I was dissapointed by his physique because you could tell his wasnt taking care of his body.
But my favourite part of the evening was meeting Charlie V's brother, Rob. He was a very nice guy and was willing to talk. He told charlie in LA right now working for the upcoming season and he finally feels healthy. He told me Charlie was very upset when he left Toronto. He even asked me " Do you like Andrea?" i answered " I still believe he'll turn into something special". He responded " Well, he is the reason Charlie got traded". He told me that Charlie was traded because Andrea was brought in , another big man. He told me that Charlie was dissapointed when he heard he was traded because Colangelo himself had told him that he wouldnt be traded and weeks later, Charlie heard from the radio that he was traded. Colangelo didn't even bothering telling him he was being traded, he had to find out from the radio. He also told me that charlie just had his first baby, born in Toronto. He said that Charlie loves Toronto and hopes to be back but the situation the Raptors
are on there is no room for him.
All in all, this made me remember what a nice guy Charlie was and that he wasn't treated right by Colangelo. His brother was very cool and very interesting to talk to.
