I appreciate no longer having to watch him when I watch Raptor games.

Sigh - Ed Davis and $40 million of not RG's salary. But nonetheless - was ok here last season and brought some excitement to the team but it was not to be given his salary and play this season. Hopefully DMC doesn't go insane on him in SAK.

His first game as a Raptor when we skunked LAC was one of my favourite Raptor games all time. The way the crowd chanted RUDY RUDY RUDY and cheered like we won Game 7 when he hit a basic fadeaway was hilarious once you think back to it.

As someone who was a big Rudy fan and was happy about the trade last season i am thoroughly disapointed with how it turned out. That being said he played well last season when he was here and that was at least pretty fun. Good luck to him in Sacramento.

same, I don't have any grudge towards him I just think he wasn't a right fit here. To be honest doubt he will be in Sacramento either, but time will show

Used to love him so much back when he came into the league, was one of my favorite players for a long time. Was excited as anyone else when he got traded here but for whatever reason it just never worked, and he seemed to just try to do way too much himself and never trusted his team-mates at all.

Best of luck to em in Sac town.

He rebounds very well, and despite his percentages, was fairly reliable in the clutch. (which is something quite rare in Raptors history) The winners against Indiana and Denver, as well as the shots against Houston and Portland earlier this year were sick, and Rudy could make the game damn exciting when he put his mind to it.
