Raptors Alumni look so old now.
Except for maybe JYD. He retired at age 31 on his own terms despite being able to play more years if he wanted to.

I did not start watching the Raptors until around 1998 so I don't know the guy in the middle.

Speaking of Vince Carter... any early 2000s Raptors fans still hate him?

I was in grade 4 at the time so my childhood and early days of watching the Raptors all revolved around Vince Carter as he was the star on our team. From my perspective, I never hated him, but maybe I just didnt understand at the time because I was so young.
Richard Peddie deserves more of the hate

The guy had no idea how to run a sports organization that even Leaf fans were pissed at him for mismanaging. The organization at the time had no idea how to handle the superstar power of Vince Carter, who at one point was one of the biggest superstars in the world and magnitudes more than Sundin

Richard Peddie basically cared more about the food and concession stands in the ACC than making the Leafs/Raptors into a winning team. That was a serious quote from him....

Wow, yeah Raps Alumni look so old now..

Guy in the middle with the blue shirt, I don't think this guy was a Raps player...

Maybe team staffer??

George Hill. For a lot cheaper than Lowry. Although he's more injury-prone, we'll have to "rest" him for the playoffs.

Scratch that.
Chris Bosh's NBA career is done.

He was first sidelined with a blood clot in his lungs. The second time was for a blood clot in his calf.
Hope he stays in good health and lives a long and healthy life after the NBA.

He has already won two NBA Championship rings and made over $150 million in his career.
Probably has good enough numbers to make the Hall of Fame first or second ballot.
There is no reason for him to risk another comeback despite saying he is preparing for one last month.

I can see Hill going back to the Spurs if they don't find a way to get CP3.

Just seeing how far the Raptors is from GS. They should just tank.

I hope Ujiri is at least thinking about it. We could get a high pick from DD and Jonas.
TORONTO RAPTORS IS THE 2019 NBA CHAMPIONS
