Most hated person ever associated with the Raptors - Round 1/Matchup 1

One showed up (kind of) and one didn't at all, but both got paid millions to do nothing for the Raptors.

Zo. At least Hakeem showed up for practise, even if he forgot his talent in Texas.

Alonzo showing up was never part of he deal, period.

Dunno why everyone forgets that. From day one he was there to make salaries match and to save the raptor franchise close to 15 million when his buyout went through.

why?

do a little digging, and I think you'll learn a bit more about Zo and Toronto. He never for one second was supposed to come.

It wasn't Hakeem's fault he was offered a fat, inappropriate contract that he didn't deserve. If I knew I was washed up I'd be signing toxic contracts all over the place.

I don't know if I believe this talk about the supposed expectation that Zo was not to show up. He bitched about being traded here, he wouldn't have bitched if he knew he was going to be bought out anyway. Gotta be zo for me.

SJ is right. anyone mad at Zo is misinformed.

Hak robbed us. he was going to retire and he took the money then retired.

I would guess it'll ne Hedo vs VC in the final round and i'd vote Vince everytime. Anyway, for this round it's no contest... Alonzo Mourning was/is a douchebag!!

hedo would be in the final round if you're too young to remember zeke leaving us high and dry. zo would be the greater douche if you didn't know what you're talking about.

Thanks Jackson, most of these younger guys don't remember what happened as vividly as we do as we were a bit more involved as crazy fans when it happened.

Zo. He doesn't even deserve to be mentioned in Hakeem's breath. Character and play wise.

Except he didn't end up retiring, of course. We bought him out, he "retired", and then he promptly signed a minimum contract with Miami and won a title there. Zo ended up playing 3 more years after we acquired him and had him under contract for 2. Ridiculous!

In fairness to the SUPPOSEDLY "misinformed" "younger guys" who don't remember things as "vividly" as the old dogs, there was some flip flopping coming from the Babcock camp. First they said Alonzo wouldn't play because of health issues, but then they back tracked and said it was because they wanted to buy him out. Sure, it's possible that they intended to buy him out from day one due to financial considerations, but that's not what they told people. There is no way of knowing for sure when they were telling the truth. What we do know is that Alonzo went off and played for Miami. The funny thing is, people complain about BC being a politician, yet Babcock did a lot of fucking bullshitting too.

Here is a quote immediately following the trade:

Quote:
“The third aspect of this trade is Alonzo Mourning. We understood going into this trade the health ramifications pertaining to Alonzo. We made the trade knowing that his health is such that he may never play for us. If he gets healthy, we’d welcome him playing for us. This is a good trade for us without Alonzo, but it would be an added bonus should his health permit him to play.”
LINK

BC is a politician? Pfffftttt....they all are.

Edit - I added the link to the story, since someone might actually want to read it.
