As part of the club's 15th anniversary celebrations, the Raptors are hoping to honour, of all people, Vince Carter on Nov. 22 when Orlando returns.
''Everybody wants to know how we can do it, but Vince is part of the history here," GM Bryan Colangelo told the Orlando Sentinel. "Most of the people that he had problems with here are gone.''
Fans who love to bash Vinsanity may differ.
Head coach Jay Triano says Andrea Bargnani's inconsistent shooting is letting it affect other parts of his game.
"Like everyone, when your shot is not going, the key is do the other things -- get rebounds, defend and make sure you're coverages are complete," Triano said.
A Jose guarantee
After missing just three free throws last season, Jose Calderon has missed four, but he's not concerned.
"The thing about the free throws, that's a normal thing," Calderon said. "I'm going finish the year at 90%, but 98% is impossible. It happened once, forget about it, everyone has to be calm. It doesn't matter. If I miss, it's not the end of the world. We have to keep winning and working and making shots."
"I think at the start of the game, we are so concerned with doing the right thing that we are not reacting. We are thinking our way through it. It's sort of a paralysis by analysis." -- Triano on the team's poor starts this season.
