Sam Mitchell has some words of advice for those still smarting over Vince Carter’s departure for the swamplands of New Jersey a season-and-a-half past: Get over it.
“Ya’all need to let this Vince Carter stuff go. It’s not about Vince coming back to Toronto. It’s about the New Jersey Nets and the Toronto Raptors . Vince Carter just happens to be a member of that team,” said Mitchell after the Raptors practice Friday.
It might not be that easy for the Raptors fans who felt jilted when Carter, who helped put the team on the map when he became a National Basketball Association superstar in Toronto before requesting a trade prior to the 2004-05 season.
