Will All The Vince Bashings Work ?

There is playoff frenzy all around Toronto. Nowithstanding the 12:30 noon schedule of game 1 between the Raptors and the Nets, expect the crowd to come in droves. I know hotcakes are selling like tickets ! Or is it the reverse ? I don't know if the planned 'dress in red shirt' will come into fruitation or if the silent treatment to be given Vince Carter will become a reality. I doubt if the 2nd one will materialize. I'm sure the fans will likely boo Carter as usual. No , a lot louder this time. There will be lots of signs and placards in the ACC too. It's 'red alert' day Saturday said Jack Armstrong in the show Full Court Press.
Even a newspaper in Toronto is joining the fun (see above) . The question is : Will all the bashings affect Vince's performance. ' Vince played a bad game the last time he was here ' said Chuck Swirsky today to the Nets' radio guy. Reallly . Was it because of the fans jeering and booing him every time he touched the ball ? ' Coach Frank and his boys will fly back to New Jersey after the game ' said the NJ radio guy. ' They will be back here for the Tueday game ' . he added . Maybe the bashings will work. If you are a Toronto fan , you pray that these will !

I don't know. Vince is a guy with a problem getting excited and motivated. It kind of seems like fuel for the fire to me.

But its so fun

Now that game 1 is over,the Raps should settle down. I'm sure the Raps were nervous 10x if fans and bloggers like us are all nerves before and during the game.

I love basketball but only in the most superficial way. (Just popping in to say hi since you left me a Sanjaya-related comment.)

The Raps cannot afford to lose the next game.They should play better now that game 1 was out of the way.They have their feet wet.Now,its time to wet the dreams of the Nets' fans.Go Raptors go !

Well, Carter had a bad game so I guess they did work.

I think we'll win Game 2. Game 1 was lost because of jitters. Thats all. Oh yeah, and Bosh's second phantom foul + Mitchell's decision to sit him. I wrote a pretty big post about this game. Check it out if you have time.

i think vince did a good job of being the center of attention, while Kidd and Jefferson sliced and diced. game 2 will be a raptors win, no doubt in my mind.

The game was a good one.That the Raptors were frantic was obvious.It's like the first playoff series with the Knicks.We beat your guys then .The next year,the Raptors won.

YES,the bashings worked. Let's see if
these work again the next game.
That's the Raptors' problem.The Nets team is a 3 headed monster.
I hope that the Raps will shorten their laerning curve.
