You knew someone, at some point was going to bring Vince Carter’s name into the much anticipated return of former Raptors franchise player Chris Bosh.
Carter, after all, sets the tone when it comes to suffering the wrath of spurned Torontonians.
You just didn’t expect that someone to be head coach Jay Triano.
Asked if he were a fan, would he boo Bosh who returns to the ACC Wednesday night for the first time since leaving to join the Miami Heat, Triano gave the question a little thought first.
“If I was fan, I don’t know, maybe,” he said smiling just a little. “Probably just because I’m so tired of booing Vince.”
“But honestly I don’t know all the details,” Triano said more seriously. “Was it a planned thing to leave? If it was a planned thing I would boo for sure.”
Then the smile returned.
“As a fan though, I’d probably be tired of booing Vince and be looking for a new target anyway,” he said.
