NBA Championship TonightPublished by Toronto Mike on April 15, 2005 @ 07:52 in Toronto Raptors
Tonight, our Toronto Raptors host the NBA Championship game. If the Raps win tonight, their season is a complete success and Raptor fans will enjoy a great summer. It all comes down to this.
Vince Carter and I have had quite the tumultuous relationship that is well documented. To say I'm angry with him is the understatement of the season. Carter went through the motions here, forced us to deal his sorry ass for little in return and then started playing to his potential in New Jersey. Since being dealt, he's scored 30 or more points 21 times, 20 or more 45 times (in 53 games) and earned Player of the Week honors last week after averaging 34.7 points as the Nets went 3-0 to stay alive in the playoff race. It's enough to make you want to scowl.
I take it personally. Tonight, with the Nets in town, I'll be watching. This is our NBA Championship. A win tonight and all the other crap Raptor fans have had to deal with will be forgiven. Go Raps! Beat Vince!
