It Feels Like The Real Thing

raptorsI caught most of the Raptors game last night, and it was definitely one of those 2-for-1 victories. It was a big win over a division rival and it was a big win over Vince Carter. Here's a little taste of my history with Vince.

Carter's Nets are now 4.5 games back of our Raps. There's something awfully satisfying about that, isn't there? Playing .547 ball, the Raps aren't even banking on the fact they're in the weakest division. We'd be third in the Central and a solid second in the Southeast. We're beating good teams, taking out awesome home teams like the Bulls and hanging in and almost beating the conference leading Pistons. We've won eight straight at home and 10 of our last 12. This certainly feels like the real thing.

Not only did we extend our lead in the Atlantic while beating Vince, but the player formerly known as Air Carter finished with a mere 17 points on 5-for-15 shooting from the floor. Chris Bosh, our new idol, led all players with 25 points.

Go Raps Go!

Vince is history. I watched that whiney suck last night and noticed that in true VC fashion, he gave up in the 4th when the game seemed out of reach, even though they came to within 10 with plenty of time to go, he settled for low percentage, outside shots. That guy will never be a champ because he doesn't know what it takes to win. He knew once when guys named Oakley and Butch Carter pounded it into him, but without a babysitter the guy is nothing. Enough is enoug, Bosh is our future now and he's a bright one at that. I applaud Colangelo for bringing in mature men to play in this city and not whiney—albeit talented—babies. Vince, Damon, Marcus, Tracey, I'm talking about you.
