Hmmm, nobody disputes his great talent. But nobody disputes the fact that he pissed it away and instead of taking his game to another level, after 5-6 great seasons he stopped dunking and settle for 3's, was indifferent on D and alienated fans and teammates everywhere he's played. Ask fans in NJ, Orlando, Phx what they think of ol' Vince. Great, for 5 years he was the best dunker in the game, no question and was a top 5 player no question but his lack of fire, desire and effort on many nights eventually far outweighed his talents imo.
