I do. My daughter was born in Toronto the same year Toronto got their expansion team and she's a big Raptors fan.

Without VC, the Raptors are definitely the Cinderella team of this playoff season. It would be cool to see them get into Round 2, but I don't think that's likely.

Oh, I don't think they'll win the series, not without VC, but I still root for them.

They've forced a game 5. No matter what happens the Raptors have definitely made a good showing of themselves.

Vince Carter - Least Valuble Player

Vince wins the Gary Trent award for highest priced bench guy in a suit.

Come on, VC was suffered an injury, came back too early, and it's just not fair to bash the guy for what happened to the team this year.

Not that I like the guy all that much. I wish they'd pull the plug on that whole Dr. Funk campaign.

I wonder what the record in game 5 is for teams that are down 2-0 and make that comeback?

I don't think you can totally discount the fact that the Raptors have played better with him out. At the very least it shows that the team can survive without him. Try saying that about any other so called superstars. You can't. Vince is not an elite player, he's 90% hype and show.

The Wolves played better when KG was out for foul trouble in game three. Does that count?

He'd be PERFECT with the Clippers.

Hey, the fact that the Mavs play better with Shawn Bradley on the court doesn't seem to matter to people. But then, he's not exactly 90% hype and show.
