Chris Bosh Back in Toronto, Awaits Deserved Boos

raptorsI can't remember the last time I wrote about the Toronto Raptors. It's been that kind of forgettable season. We're awful.

We might be awful, but tonight there's a good reason for casual fans to get excited again. Chris Bosh is back in town with his Miami Heat teammates to face the Raps at the ACC and he's going to get the Vince Carter treatment. He's getting the Vince Carter treatment because he deserves the Vince Carter treatment.

Admittedly, I defended his Raptor career when he signed with Miami and didn't see the Carter comparison right away, but I've since seen the light.

Appearing on the FAN 590, Bryan Colangelo said Bosh wasn't the same player toward the end of last year. In essence, he quit on us.

Colangelo said on Monday's show that whether Bosh was "mentally checked out or, you know, just wasn't quite into it down the stretch, he wasn't the same guy. And I think everybody saw that, just no one wanted to acknowledge it."

Quitters deserve to get booed. Tonight should be fun.

I feel like ignoring the guy (NO cheering and NO booing) would have more of an impact. Think about how confused the giant dinosaur would be? I mean here's a guy who LOVES to be a media whore and with NO attention on him it would show the fans don't really give a crap about him anymore!

BTW....I think it's time we forgave Vince and stopped booing him already. I know he quit on the team, but he also put the Raps on the map!

Who cares about the Raptors. I'm a Suns fan when it comes to basketball. Suns rule.

Really, other than the 12,000 real fans + the 4,000 "pretty people" whom want to be seen.
Who really cares about Toronto Basketball!!!
