Well, I agree with everything in the article except two things.
1) I think Vince would've brought the Magic to the playoffs these last two years if he was in McGrady's place. The magic did not have that horrible a roster. Mike Miller was rookie of the year, Darrell Armstrong is aging but still a crafty vet, Horace Grant is way undersized but the east is the east, Garrity can shoot, and Troy Hudson is a back-up PG that can score. Vince would've taken that team to the playoffs.
2) I think it is very premature of him to say that Vince will never be better than Dirk, Pierce, Kobe, or T-Mac. All of these guys are still maturing. When Larry Johnson and Rick Fox burst onto the NBA scene together, which did you think would be the first to three rings? When the Rockets were winning titles, did you ever think Cassell would lead a team once out from beneath Kenny Smith's shadow? After his first three years, did anyone even think Jon Barry would still be on an NBA roster at this point? The beauty of the league is that things happen all the time. Players mature and find a team concept they buy into, or they continue to play selfishly and never amount to much. I think now is way too early to be claiming anything about these 5 young superstars.
Let's just get the season rolling and watch the games!

As living north of the border, I have seen Vinsanity (as we canucks call him) do sum amazing things. While I do not agree with that article he's dead on rite with saying kobe and tmac are better than him rite now. Vince's offensive game is an odd one; he jacks up str8 weird shots sum times and takes alot of 3's (not a great % mind you) but still scores 25-30 PPG. He needs to go too the rim alot more however as he (along with rest of the raptors) start to fall in love with the 3. Kobe and TMac can score anywhere on the floor be it: mid-range J, in the post or from downtown they can do it all... and what Vince cant do. There's more to basketball than posterized dunks and long bomb 3's.
I would take Dirk over VC. I would probably take VC over Pierce though.Originally posted by <b><<<D>>></b>!
just gotta see what happens??
I thought they kinda downplayed VC on this article..
He's definitley up there with T-Mac and Kobe...
IMO - He's Better than Dirk and maybe Pierce
