Pretty hard for Raptor fans to swallow.

The guy was just named the player of the week, averaging 26 points, and 9 assists. He just had a 31 point night, and is shown on high-light reels on national TV. Just like the Old Vince.

Although the Raptors are doing great (Marshall, Mo-Pete, Rose, Bosh all have improved their play since Carter left), including a thrilling win over Indiana tonight, you have to reflect back on the trade.

Alonzo Mourning was a big part of the deal, and he won't shoot a field goal for the Raptors. The Raptors are negotiating a buyout that will pay him 10 million for pouting and holding out.

Eric and Aaron Williams are nothing but spare change and used car parts.

Which leaves, the 2 first round draft picks. They're both likely to be in the middle range. If you were told about this trade in December, would you have made it?

2 mid first round draft picks to a team that you're competing for, for the playoffs?

Would it have been wiser to trade him to the West?

Vince is good, but he hasnt improved the team.
