MoPete's days numbered in NO?

Quote:
Disappointed with the production at his two-guard spot, New Orleans Hornets Coach Byron Scott said Saturday he'd start Devin Brown Sunday night against the defending world champion Los Angeles Lakers and put Morris Peterson on the inactive list.

"It's a 2-4 start and I'm not really getting anything out of Mo at the starting two guard," Scott said following practice at the Alario Center. "It just might be by committee right now; give Devin a chance then six games from now, maybe give Marcus (Thornton, rookie from LSU) a chance and just go with (the most effective) guy.

Too bad, but he was done in TO.

If only he'd ever discovered he had a right hand as well as his left.

Wonder if he's coming to the celebration of 15 seasons.

He better be. Mo gave the Raptors a lot of solid years and excitement. He really began to regress in final season in Toronto. I thought it was a long cold streak at first, given he's always been inconsistent game to game but he never really recovered his game... I was hopeful this year when he claimed he was coming to camp in the best shape of his life... To bad its not worked out for him there. Maybe a change of scenery is what he needs? Although if you can't be effective on offense next to Chris Paul there isn't much hope for you.

Mo Pete was never short of a circus shot in toronto thats for sure. He really helped the team out in his rookie year and seemed to digress with the team after that.

He was a very good role player for a few years too bad his game never got better with age.

Some players are what they are when they leave college. It wasn't a bad thing in Mo's case because Toronto drafted him at #21 and for a pick in the 20's the Raptors got really good value. The thing that I never really liked was that he never really left for summer, picked a weaker aspect of his game and worked on it like Bosh or Bargnani does.

Mo had a pretty good career for his limited game and slight frame. He might be wishing for more today, but tomorrow he will look back and smile.

Here's hoping he was smart with his $$ and can live a full life after basketball.

I loved Mopete. He was a great guy, but anyone that would consider retiring his jersey would have extremely low standards.

Honestly, we haven't had one guy that even comes close to deserving that kind of recognition. not even close!

VC was pretty close, unfortunate for things to end up the way they did

Carter was on the right road for the first 3/4 years of his career and then he did a 180 and we all know how that ended up.

So no, he didn't come close... the day his jersey hangs in the rafters is probably the day that i quit being a raptor supporter.

This whole jersey retiring issue is so played out. People are so desperate to have some hero icon that they can link with this team or find some fake sense of history/tradition/greatness. ENOUGH. Let it come naturally FFS.

Maybe it's because raptor fans look up in the ACC and see all those leaf team and player banners and feel left out... well that's because the Maple Leafs have a rich history that involved teams and players of greatness that us raptor fans can never claim to have had even if we wanted to.

Nobody in the raptors' history even comes close. FACT.

Well as you know the leafs don't retire numbers they honour them. One of the reasons why Dave Keon refuses to have his number hung up. I thought the leafs really were "rich" in history then they had to hang up Clarks number which IMHO goes undeserving. He was a fan favourite and a pretty good player thats about it.

i disagree.

Wendel Clark the heart and soul of the team during 10+years.

He gave his heart to the team 10 times over everytime he was on the ice... he was a great goal scorer and played with toughness and aggression that few could match. I remember watching him as a kid and seeing him be a difference maker when he was on the ice. Dude gave it everything he had on every shift.

It's too bad that he incurred as many injuries as he did... but even so, given what he did when he played, he totally deserves to have his banner up there.

Anyone, please name me one raptor who left that kind of mark on the franchise.
