Default Is there still hate for VC?

So, after this whole Bosh-fiasco this off-season, do you think the Raptors faithful will still boo VC when he rolls into town? Or has his part of the the villian been replaced by CB1? (Nope, no matter how many times I say it, "CB1" doesn't sound right )

Fuck, T-Mac is still booed here. VC will always get booed and will always be hated. It's just that now there's a new villain in town to add to the list.

the people who hate on vc are the ones who love him the most, Bosh is a different story, any competitive player who has to join certain other players for them to win are some punk motherfuckers, its going against all of sports to join enemies, if Bosh were to say go to houston or ny I wouldn't boo him but now that fuckers gonna hear it from everyone

I hope Bosh gets boo'd as well as VC did when he made his return. Bosh can't handle the boo's that VC received. I hope it's worse.. I can foresee it being pretty bad once I start the RuPaul chant..

I am in two minds about this one.

Firstly it is undoubtably true that VC has been the best Raptor of all time. Eventually there should be some recognition of this fact by the general Raptors fans, not just by some diehards of RF.

And so....it would be nice if some appreciation of his contributions was distributed (by VC towards T.O. as well) when VC visits though applause directed at Vinsanity.

After all as a basketball city, history is what we lack and VC, either love him or hate him has given us at least some history. VC (during his time as a Raptor) is considered the best dunker of all time (OF ALL TIME!!!), that is something that should eventually be celebrated. His "oop" should be celebrated. His answer to "The Answer" should be celebrated. So yes I think the booing should stop, not just because it is somewhat embarrassing, but because he put Toronto basketball on the map.........period.

However...

Everytime he visits, and everytime we boo, a little tear of joy swells in the corner of my eye.

agreed. Also vince departing was more of a mutual decision just because we had a fuckface for a gm that didn't get us shit in return made us fans more bitter.

Wha??

"Mutual decision"? Yeah... riiiiiiggghhhht. You mean after he tanked his way out of town and publicly demanded a trade?

Please.

That fucker is still the biggest waste of talent that I've seen in the NBA since Shawn Kemp.

He'll still be hated by people, but I think less people will boo him now.

I'll boo him. But the stranger sitting next to me might not.

It'll die down a bit I think, just like it did with T-mac. Not as loud as it once was when T-mac comes into town nowadays.

Nets VS. Raptors two years ago when it went into double overtime, with Vince tying then winning the game. I was there. The energy in that building was spectacular. I know it was two years ago, but that kind of hate was tupac-biggie shit lol. Dayum son, never stop booing him. And if there is ever an Orlando-Miami back-to-back we shall all agree to buy tickets, oxygen masks, and a ton of alcohol! Wha'dya say?

There still is, but I don't think there will be as much as there used to be. There's only so much hate to go around.

Hang on a sec.... so we have a superstar 2-guard..... perennial all-star.... in his prime... and our brass chose to build around a skinny rookie PF rather than him?

That makes no sense at all.
