Young Chris Bosh was on the Raptors at the time Vince forced his way out of town. Had he stuck it out he would have been there for the prime of an all-star big man. Nobody's fault but his own.

Re: Best Player to Wear #15?

Yes Jerry West and Oscar Robertson are 2 of the greatest player ever. But we're talking about Vince + Greer. Rediculous arguement.

the whole story surrounding VC's last days drives me nuts and it's the media's fault. I bet any money Vince wanted to stay in Toronto, but it was Rob Babcock's inept managing skills that he suddenly got traded for some nobodies.

If he wanted to stay in Toronto so bad, why did his statistics go from career lows essentially across the board in his first twenty games in Toronto to career highs essentially across the board in his last fifty-odd games in New Jersey?

Since you're from Toronto, I seriously hope you're joking.

He flat out said he had given up. And if Babcock was the who wanted him out and had no pressure to move him, you would think he could've gotten a way better package of players than he got.

Did you ever hear the Jalen Rose story about how Vince and Sam Mitchell actually got into a fight? i think it's on youtube you should look it up.

Charles Oakley never had to push Greer up against a locker in order to help inspire him to stop playing like scared little girl

I wouldn't kid about something I was following while it all happened. It was the general idea that Vince wanted out, but in the organization's circle, he already said he wanted to remain with the Raptors. If Glen Grunwald was still the GM at the time, he would've been prudent enough to keep Vince, if not explore better proposals.


If my username wasn't modeled after Vince, he would've gotten more votes - that's for sure.

So you're have an inside source to the Raptors organization?

And what the shit does voting have to do with your username?

I remember a Nets @ Raptors game where Vince was talking to Garbo and started pointing at his jersey with laughter. He couldn't believe he took his Raptor #. I wish Leo or Chuck picked up on it and showed a replay.

It's psychology. People dislike stans and want to distance themselves from them for fear they'll be marginalized just like the stans. If a neutral basketball fan first voted for VC, then he would've gotten a lot more votes already.

Re: Best Player to Wear #15?

Matt, you sound like a smart guy. BUT you can't honestly believe that your username has some sort of psychological power over other posters/voters. So by your understanding, if someone with the username, lets say MJ Forever, voted for Jordan as a better player than LeBron (also 23). You think that all other voters/poster would automatically feel the need to vote for LBJ because the 1st voter had a name that depicts him as a fan of the player he voted for? I think you're giving your username a little to much credit.

And also you never responded to how you know about what was going on within the inside organizational talks regarding Vince.

damn straight. A lot of votes that would've went to Jordan would go to Lebron due to that MJ stan, especially if he makes an "OMG MJ 4 life" kind of post. I'm serious.

That's a very bad argument when determining who's a better player.

With that said, Melo is a gifted offensive player, and probably the best offensive player on this list, but his lack of defense shies me away from giving him the vote for this one.
