How is this even allowed?
I like Amir Johnson. He’s a good player, plays with good energy, whatever whatever blah blah blah. But there is no reason why he should be allowed to wear #15 with the Raptors. That’s Vince’s number, and it always will be. When I saw Amir in those retro Purple dinosaur uniforms, I actually puked.
The Raptors are openly defecating on their own history. Vince is the greatest ever to suit up for the Dino Crew, and it’s not even close. I don’t know if there is a policy for retiring a number before the player in question is actually retired, but they should do it anyway. Air Canada is the only reason anyone cares about the Raps, now and forever. You think Drake is hyped about this current iteration? Hell no. He’s reppin Vince and T-Mac.
As I said, I think Amir Johnson is a nice piece for these Raptors. But he is a straight bum when compared to V-Cart. There are just some things that shouldn’t be done, some lines that shouldn’t be crossed. Carter is a legend. A legend. Have you all forgotten already?
