Report: Vince Carter fought Sam Mitchell

Wow. They should make a reality show about the Raptors. This team is ****ed up bad. Marty York is known to make a lot of bull**** up, but this may very well be true as Sam didn't deny it.

Re: Report: Vince Carter fought Sam Mitchell

Interesting read. Not only does Mama Carter said it happened, but others
said it happened.

I've been sticking up for Mitchell since Day 1, but if he's challenging his
players to physical fights then he should be fired ASAP. I wonder if the
players have tuned him out. Their lack of effort the past 10 games is
alarming.

Also York said 4 Raps have asked for a trade (both Williams, Murray, and
Marshall).

This franchise is a mess. I never thought I would say this ......... but bring back Butch Carter!!!!!!!

If this is true and its also true he wanted to fight Skip.. then he has to go. I know guys can be frustrating but to challenge them to fights and being the head coach is all wrong for any team.

Anybody who has seen VC play during his career knows he's as meek as they get. There is no way that VC pushed around Mitchell without his consent and I'm sure it was horseplay like Mitchell said. He was probably trying to see if VC had any balls whatsoever. If it was serious Mitchell would of had Vince on the ground in about 5 seconds and there's no way Mitchell would brag at a party being whipped by VC.

Both Mitchell and VC admitted tonite it was nothing and both looked perplexed. This came from Vince's mommy so that should tell you something.

Re: Report: Vince Carter fought Sam Mitchell

If this story is true I feel sorry for the Raptors right now as nobody seems to want to play for them. If Aaron Williams is complaining something is wrong in that locker room and it's definitely not the players fault. I hope they get something done soon about this problem because everyday you hear something new on the Raptors and it's not positive. btw why did they hire Mitchell as coach and wasn't there somebody better at the time?

"sigh"

I can't believe Mitchell is doing this crap it's like he's still a player! I wsih Butch Carter was here too. He was actually a good coach he only got fired over the Camby Crap.

The Raps do seemed to be cursed with coaches and I do agree Butch Carter was thier best coach but he actually got fired because he tried to undermine GM Greg Grunwald by going over his head and claiming that he could get TMac to resign with the Raps as long as they made him GM and fired Grunwald. The Camby incident was just what Grunwald needed as an excuse to get rid of him. Although in hindsight the Raps hierarchy should of listened to Carter as Grunwald didn't leave much of a legacy.

Re: Report: Vince Carter fought Sam Mitchell

watever happened there though, toronto got screwed, they trade carter for a player they waive, a benchwarmer, and wow! another raptor that wants to be traded

and look at the way VC is playing now, i'm almost certain the reason he wasn't playing this well in toronto was because he hated being there

he comes to NJ, and its like he just flipped the on switch, resuming his career from where it left off a few seasons ago

I don't care for it since it's old news. It's time to move on. Vince isn't even in Toronto anymore.
