NBA Trash Talk: Volume VI

Hi, all. So, Vince finally moved south of the border, and I can’t say I’m at all surprised. Everyone and their mother knew that he was looking to leave town even before he re-signed with the Raptors, although I doubt many would have predicted he’d end up in the Garden State. Two or three months ago the smart money would have been on some trade with New York, probably putting them another few hundred million over the cap. Vince hinted that he’d be happy as a Knick and Zeke publicly expressed his interest in Air Canada (thinking of which, he’ll need a new nickname now), but nothing came of it, leaving Mr. Carter up north and unhappy. If anything surprises me about his departure from Toronto, it’s that it wasn’t sooner. Even the Raptor faithful were beginning to grumble at his seemingly constant injuries and public shots at management.
