MoPete returns March 30th
 
The longest serving Raptor ever. I hope he gets a standing ovation personally.

Belsius 03-21-2008 07:02 AM

Standing ovation for sure.

pimpery 03-21-2008 08:20 AM

audible cheer or nothing, cant decide.

rapsfan087 03-21-2008 09:00 AM

Standing ovation.

Raptorman 03-21-2008 09:21 AM

The place will be nuts.

The Raps are always classy when this happens. They let the fans cheer and wait to announce their own players.

JYD got this treatment.

Taz 03-21-2008 10:06 AM

November?

I thought the same thing Taz. wbeach meant March. :)

I think Benzo bought an entire section at the ACC for Mo's return. ;)

I'm sitting in the Doc's seat...I can't wait..I may cry.

Mo Pete is one of the greats. Standing ovation!

Acie 03-21-2008 01:00 PM

I think we should remind everyone about the times he publicly sulked or about the time he said he wanted to be an all-star (that's cancerous and me-first right there).

Mr. Raptor...pfft!

fancylad 03-21-2008 04:13 PM

He had his ups and his downs while he was here, but you can't dispute that Mo did a lot of good to this organization.

I'd give him a standing ovation personally, as he was all class. .... well at least 80% class anyways.

Claudius 03-21-2008 04:23 PM

I'd clap, not stand, but clap. Possibly a golf clap.

Jay 03-21-2008 07:18 PM

Easily a standing O. Easily. Anybody not giving a standing O that night deserves a beat down.

moremilk 03-21-2008 09:59 PM

how can you not give a standing ovation to one of our franchise most distinctive player? He was here for 7 years, never complained, and didn't want to leave the town - I would be shocked if he doesn't receive a nice welcome.

Acie 03-21-2008 10:10 PM

The guy complained on more than one occasion about playing time, even going as far as say it's time to play elsewhere, bad mouthed the team when he signed an offer sheet with the Hornets four years ago only to have to back peddle when the Rators matched it and sulked on the bench all of last year.

Screw him.



Mr.Raptor = Alvin Williams

I actually like Mo and I think he deserves a nice round of applause, but I don't think he's the great guy and wonderful player that most Raptor's fans make him out to be.

Kuzzy 03-21-2008 10:27 PM

MoPete a possible MVP candidate with New Orleans surprising improvement this year ?


I joke :).

Raptorman 03-21-2008 10:30 PM

MoPete became a part of the family. He took everything to heart and wore it on his sleeve. Even your own brothers say and do things they regret later.

Mo is that realitive you had an on/off relationship with. Good to see him again!!! Just dont move back into the basement....

i pretty much agree with all of this, except screw him part.

I think he deserves some light applause, but by no means a standing O
