TORONTO - Nearly 10 years after Vince Carter departed Toronto, leaving enraged Raptors fans in his wake, they finally stood and applauded the superstar who helped put basketball on the map in Canada. Kenny Vaccaro Jersey .The Raptors honoured Carter with a video tribute as part of their 20th anniversary celebrations Wednesday, as his Memphis Grizzlies played in Toronto.The 38-year-old was visibly moved, wiping away tears with powder his blue T-shirt. He touched a hand to his heart and repeatedly gave thumbs-up to the crowd.Earlier in the day, the former Raptors superstar leaned against the scoring table after the morning shootaround, and talked about his fond memories of his seven years with the Raptors.Each time he plays in Toronto, he makes a point of looking at the banner that commemorates the first Raptors game at the ACC.Its still special coming here, its still fun. Its weird, they move this flag every time, I struggle finding it, he said, with a glance up to the arenas rafters. But when I walk in here seeing February 20th, 1999. Thats the first thing I think of when this building opened. I just remember getting the opportunity to make history. Making the first shot. You cant take that away.Charles Oakley found Carter who finished with no surprise a dunk on that first shot.Carter said during shootaround, he was cool with the tribute, which he found out about during a radio interview. His mother Michelle Carter was present for the pre-game video, sitting in the stands of the ACC.Its something thats memorable to me, to see the video right here, in the building where it all happened. You cant beat that. Its one thing to sit at home watching with your friends or watch it on a computer, but right here? Its special.Carter has been the object of fans fury in virtually every return trip to Toronto, but theres been a shift in perception recently. Young Canadian stars such as Andrew Wiggins, Nik Stauskas, Anthony Bennett and Kelly Olynyk grew up during Vinsanity, and have credited the former Raptors star with sparking their interest in the game.Stauskas often talks about when, as a young boy attending a Raptors open practice, he was picked out of the crowd to play one-on-one with Carter. When Stauskas now a rookie with the Sacramento Kings drilled a three, Carter tackled the youngster to the court and gave him a noogie.Hes done a lot not just for us as a team, but just for this country, former Raptors teammate Alvin Williams told reporters earlier this season. You see the Canadian players now that are in the NBA (there are 13), and theyre all a testament to him. That shows what he does, not only for the Raptors, but what he did for this whole country.Carter couldnt have predicted the warm reception he would receive. He said he planned to enjoy the video, no matter what.Its just a special moment that you probably wont get it again. Im going to enjoy it, Carter said.Carter comes off the bench with Memphis, and was averaging 5.8 points a night heading into Wednesday. But Grizzlies coach David Joerger said hes thrilled to have the veteran, who signed with a three-year $12.2 million deal with Memphis in the off-season.We get along great, hes a professional, hes mature, hes always doing whatever he can to help the team win, Joerger said. If he plays three minutes, hes helping guys on the bench, hes helping guys in the locker-room. Hes been through it all, hes seen it all, and that was a great pickup for us, were lucky to have him.Carter is coming off ankle surgery in the off-season.He still looks a little gimpy sometimes but over the last couple of games hes looked a lot better physically. Whether the ball goes in for him or not, I know, and we all know, what he can do, Joerger said. So once hes looking better physically, everybody is like Oooh, at some point this is going to be a big deal.Carter said it wasnt easy leaving the Mavericks, where he played for three seasons. But he joined a Memphis team that boasted the best record (10-1) in the NBA heading into Wednesdays game against the East-leading Raptors.The good thing about it, coming to a team like this, theyre an established team already, a very capable team, and its just a great opportunity to me. They gave me a call one day, and said Hey, love to have you. . . for three years. Cant turn that down.When asked if Memphis provides a chance to win an NBA championship as his career winds down, he said its too early to tell.I dont want to do that to the team. Its no pressure, he said. Nobody has talked about it prior to this run, and we still dont. Just go out there and play basketball and in due time, wed like for everybody to say, We forgot about the Grizzlies over there, and by that time, hopefully were still holding onto first place.I think were playing great basketball, everybody is playing for each other. . . I think we have a lot of experience in winning ugly games and in games where we havent played well offensively but found a way. John Kuhn Jersey . Watching them over the past year - and in some cases, two years - has given us a starting point for this seasons Craigs List. Vonn Bell Jersey . 25 against Miami. Hillis left Browns Stadium about two hours before kickoff, a decision that has led to speculation he was upset over ongoing negotiations with the club on a contract extension. http://www.officialsaintslockroom.com/trey-hendrickson-saints-jersey-55/ . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.HOUSTON -- Right-hander Jerome Williams and the Houston Astros have finalized a $2.1 million, one-year contract. The 32-year-old was 9-10 with a 4.57 ERA in 25 starts and 12 relief appearances last year for the Los Angeles Angels, including a 4-0 record in five September starts. He has a 42-47 record and 4.35 ERA in eight seasons with San Francisco (2003-05), the Chicago Cubs (2005-06), Washington (2007) and the Angels. The deal was completed Thursday, two days after the sides reach the agreement. In addition to the guaranteed salary, Williams can eaarn an additional $1 million in performance bonuses -- receiving the greater amount he earns either for starts or innings. Archie Manning Jersey. He would get $200,000 apiece for 12, 15, 20, 25, 30 starts, and $100,000 each for 120 innings and every 10 additional innings through 210. To make room on the roster, the Astros designated infielder Brett Wallace for assignment. The 27-year-old, a first-round draft pick by St. Louis in 2008, had spent four seasons with the Astros and hit .221 last year when he set career bests with 13 homers and 36 RBIs.
