I’ll admit when Tmac came into the league and compared himself to Penny Hardaway I laughed and agreed with the coach that said Tmac would be out of the league in a few years but in 1998 when the Raptors drafted my favorite basketball player (that I have been following since 1993) I started a website called GotVinsanity.com it was filled with new Vince clips on a daily basis.  What I started noticing that many people, ESPN Sportscenter included, was that Tmac was growing and had his share of spectacular blocks and dunks.  The dunking cousins soon became my 2nd favorite duo behind Shaq and Kobe but all good things come to an end and just when the cousins were looking like the next MJ and Pippen, Pippen took off to become MJ on his own.

The dunking cousins and Charles Oakley were on TSN’s Off The Record yesterday reflecting on the Raptor days and the dunk contest.

The most interesting part of the interview comes when the host brings up a quote in Slam magazine where Kobe said that Raptors team could of won champions!?!  Tmac and Vince were equally shocked because neither knew of this Kobe quote.  I’m actually looking for confirmation because I can’t recall ever reading that either.
