Vince's mom gave the story to some shit reporter, but i remember it being about Sam bodyslamming Vince. It was largely discredited due to the shit reporter's credentials. And we see now that it was quite a different story. I'm not sure if Jalen Rose narrating an animated portrayal of his account gets us too much closer to the full truth, but it does make it seem pretty clear that Vince wasn't the big victim his momma wanted to make out.

Seems like Sam couldn't handle it and provoked him. Seems like Vince wasn't as soft as everybody wanted to tihnk.

Carter does not deny incident - NBA - ESPN

We're going to find out 10 years from now that Dwayne Casey was smoking weed on that plane and James Johnson took offence.

I would say from all the accounts that it was more like horseplay that came about from the need to release some frustrations all around.

Jalen explains it as thoroughly. Just men getting testosterone up. No fight.

Yeah, but the original story was about Mitchell body-slamming Carter. What a pile of horse-shit, then, unless Jalen is lying his ass off.

I would imagine more of that stuff happens on ALL teams than people know. Can't lock 15 Alpha's in a room and expect them all to sing Campfire songs and talk about their feelings for 8 months straight. Shit happens. How they respond and grow from it is whats important. The actual event...meh...big whoop.

I was talking mostly about the way the story was presented originally. What goes on in those locker-rooms should stay there, IMO.

The original story came from a CFL beat reporter writing for a subway rag. Thankfully I've forgotten his name. Oh - shit, it just popped into my head - Marty...was it Marty York? That was some bush league shit.

I, too, seem to remember the story being told the way LX and INSIDER remembered it. At least it was initially told that way. For some reason, I remember Michelle Carter saying Sam did the body slamming, while she was being interviewed on camera, in person. I remember her making those statements while Carter was still with the Raptors. Like shortly after the incident.

Of course, my memory could be way off. This was 7+ years ago.
