Raptors fans need to let it go.
Vince Carter played his first six and a half seasons in Toronto, before ultimately forcing his way out and spurning the fanbase due to a complex set of circumstances. But now in his 16th season, it seems time to move on, no?
Apparently not if you were one of the fans in attendance on Wednesday for Carter’s return to Toronto as a member of the Mavericks. Fans booed early on, but Carter was unfazed, and immediately drove for an impressive dunk on one of his team’s early possessions.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.
But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.
Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
We had an efficient Carmelo Anthony sighting in the preseason.
Anthony and the Knicks went up against the Wizards and ‘Melo hit 10-of-15 shots to score 21 points. He also had four rebounds and four assists.
Derrick Williams had 23 points on 11 shots to lead the Knicks in scoring, and New York won 115-104.
