I’m still mad that the Lakers panicked and traded my two favorite players Nick Van Exel and Eddie Jones for nothing, and ended up both cutting our window short and forcing us to pick up washed up ass enemy losers Karl Malone and Gary Payton, who predictably went out like the punks that they were. We should’ve won that 4th chip, and then competed with OUR guys for a 5th - - - - instead Nick was averaging 25(!) for the Mavs in the playoffs while bouncing the Kings(Queens?) and Eddie was still a two way iron man for the Heat(would’ve been all defense every year if he was winning chips in LA)
Give me some random lore from your favorite team fandom. I want to hear about the beefs you have from many years ago that nobody else would know or care about...
The Raptors losing Tracy McGrady as a free agent after the 2000 season (as he was still developing) really hurt. Wish there was RFA rules on free agents back then like there are today.
The Vince Carter / Tracy McGrady duo could have been great with the proper supporting pieces. And it may have been enough to keep Vince from whining and being a baby at times (or it could have made it worse).
But hated never getting a chance to see the duo develop and star together.
