This Is The Best Raptors Team In Franchise History

Long before the Toronto Raptors set a franchise record with their 48th win against the Bucks in their final home game of the regular season, their players had been doing things no previous Toronto team had been able to. With no disrespect to Vince Carter, the 2013-2014 Raptors are the best team Toronto fans have seen since this franchise started playing in 1995.

Vince Carter, Toronto Raptors open to reunion

Might Vince Carter finish out the final years of his career where it all started, back in Toronto? Seems a bit outlandish to suggest such given the one-time bad blood between the player and the organization (not to mention the fans), but lots has happened since those days. Now the Raptors seem open to the idea of bringing Carter back: Raptors GM Masai Ujiri recently sat down in...

WATCH: Adreian Payne puts on amazing dunk contest display

Recent NBA dunk contests have been… well, I can’t even remember. Blake Griffin jumped over a car, and I feel like it was the only interesting thing to happen in the post-Vince Carter dunk machine era. The college dunk contest, on the other hand, still has a degree of awesome in it. Michigan State’s Adriean Payne made sure of that by doing things we do not expect to see from...

Vince Carter wants to re-sign with Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks have gotten very good production off the bench from former superstar Vince Carter, and it appears that he would like to re-sign with the team this offseason. Carter believes that he has more left in the tank and can continue to provide consistent scoring off the bench and is happy with that role. It’s likely that the Mavericks will give him a one or two-year...

Vince Carter on future with Mavs: 'I think I've earned the right to stick around'

Vince Carter has had an up-close view of the Mavericks’ fall from grace. It’s not easy when you join a team the season after a championship run, especially when you are transitioning into a new role as a support player rather than a featured performer. In three seasons with the Mavericks, Carter has seen them go from defending champions to barely making the playoffs to missing...

Never Too Much……….Effort

Down 15 points and clawing back to reduce the deficit to two points late in the final period, Boston refused to lose against the Dallas Mavericks. That refusal was matched by one of the NBA’s elder statesman (if you will), Vince Carter. Carter isn’t like elder Kobe, who insists that he should be regarded as an elder just because he is an 18 year veteran(and because he so desperately...

Wolves 5’10″ PG J.J. Barea Attempts Put-Back Dunk (Video)

  Minnesota Timberwolves point guard J.J. Barea is a feisty little guy who doesn’t back down from anyone on the court. Although he’s listed at six feet by many sites, one look at him and it becomes clear that that isn’t the case (His momma says he’s 5’10″). So it was kind of surprising and funny to few players when he attempted a put-back dunk during a game versus the...

Can Terrence Ross and DeMar DeRozan Become The Raptors Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter?

The Toronto Raptors had a dream in the early days of this franchise. A dream that two young up and coming star wing players, Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady, would elevate this expansion franchise into relevance and dominance as a legitimate NBA contender for many years to come. Then the dream became a myth that the team has been looking to recreate ever since and maybe, just maybe...

I may be in the extreme minority here, but I actually found the pulling down of Vince Carter’s headband on Monday night to be quite funny. It seems the J.R.
