The man once known as Vinsanity came on to Toronto radio talking about how he wouldn't mind being a Raptor again to close out his career. He also debunked a story about how he had his former coach Sam Mitchell in an airplane spin (Woo-hoo! Wrestling reference). This lead to an interview with the former NBA Coach of the Year that lead to Mitchell saying that VC was a good guy & he in fact didn't want to be traded from Toronto. The heads of Raptor fans subsequently exploded.
Sam Mitchell says Vince Carter never wanted out of Toronto on #timandsid bitly.com/UkW2SaI was under the impression that VC had wanted to be traded from the team. He sulked on the bench during his time here, allegedly told other teams what plays we were about to run & even admitted to giving less than 100% effort during his final days in Toronto. According to Mitchell though, Carter had called him the night before he was dealt admitting that he didn't wish to be traded. When Mitchell relayed this to then General Manager Rob Babcock, he was told that it was too late & a trade had already been verbally agreed to.

I would welcome back Vince Carter to Toronto. Let's face it, as the team is right now, he would definitely be the starting SF.As a fan, hearing that all this didn't have to happen is hard to hear. We could've really had something special here. Had Cater played like he did after his trade with a young Chris Bosh on his team, who knows where we would be today. It reminds me of a relationship that ends over something stupid
