Exactly. Most of our marquee players that we lost to free agency didn't leave due to the city. Bosh spent a ton of time here in the offseason, Damon called it his favourite city in the NBA, can't recall Vince being bitter with the city rather the organization. We lost players for a combination of reasons, but primarily losing. Plus, being an expansion team, none of our guys in the early years grew up dreaming of playing for the Raptors. The city itself isn't the problem.
