We'll see how chris Bosh continues beyond this contract, but if you think that he deserves to have a banner at THIS stage in his career, then you have low standards. Why not give one to any player that makes the allstar game with us.

And Vince?? Let me throw this out to anyone who considers him.
Did he honour the team when he played here? Really, was he an "honourable" raptor?
case closed.
let me ask you this...
did the raptors' organization respond honorably to him?
he deserved whatever he asked for.
he was our lebron james.
(he's not as talented as lebron, but im just trying to make a point)
if lebron was here im sure people would stand outside the acc holding signs saying "give lebron james' mother a parking spot!"
and he wouldve gotten it too.
they shouldve gave vince whatever he wanted. vince put toronto on the map in the basketball world. he gave alot of his energy.
now guys are just bitter he's gone and we have nobody to replace him.
