Vince Carter vs DeMar Derozan – WHO’S THE BETTER TORONTO RAPTOR?!


The Toronto Raptors are among one of the
youngest teams in the NBA the franchise was established in 1995 the Toronto
Raptors are the only Canadian team in the NBA they played three home games at
cops Coliseum and six home games at Maple Leaf Gardens and most of their
home games at the Rogers Center which was called the SkyDome before it was
changed back in 2005 they played a hundred and seventeen games there they
shared the stadium with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Toronto Argonauts until
moving to the Air Canada Centre where they currently play since 1999 the Air
Canada Centre opened on February the 19th 1999 as anyone would expect they
struggled because they were a new team for a few years between the years 1995
to 1998 but that would change suddenly when this particular player was drafted
5th overall in the 1998 NBA Draft when you think of the Toronto Raptors you have
one person that comes to mind and that person is Vince Carter because of the
highlight dunks and what he’s done when he was playing for Toronto and the
success that they had as a new franchise that was a few years old he’s influenced
a lot of kids that were born and grew up in Canada the main focus while I was growing
up in Toronto was Vince Carter you know he was on TV on commercial he was doing
everything in the dunk off but even though he wasn’t from Canada he was the face of Canada Basketball even Kevin Durant wanted to play for the Toronto Raptors because of Vince
Carter who did you grow up wanting to play for believe it or not I wanted to play for
the Toronto Raptors that was my favorite team growing up why coming from completely
out of America Kevin Durant was born in Washington DC this video is not only
about Vince Carter’s influence I’m here to end the debate on who the better
Raptor is once and for all once again its third 3rdEyeView195 coming at you with my
intellect and STAY TUNED! before we fully get into the comparisons
have to make this clear Vince Carter is one of my top 10
favorite players of all time the DeMar Derozan is in my top five favorite current
list so there’s no bias in this comparison this is how we’re going to
break it down we are going to be looking at offense, defense, franchise records,
playoff success, awards and stuff outside of basketball
scoring when Vince Carter came into the league he dominated from the jump in his
rookie season he averaged 18 point 3 points per game shooting twenty eight
point eight percent from the three-point line and 45% from the field
Vince played thirty five point two minutes per game in his rookie season in
Derozan’s rookie season he averaged eight point six points per game shooting 25%
from the three-point line and forty nine point eight percent from the field
playing just twenty one point six minutes you can try and make an argument
that the reason why Vince Carter scored more is because he played more minutes
but DeRozan just wasn’t as impactful as Vince Carter was coming into the
league for example we all know as NBA fans that Kobe’s compared to either
Michael Jordan or LeBron James a lot even Kobe himself wasn’t as impactful
coming into the league in his rookie season he averaged seven point six
points per game playing 15 and a half minutes but look at the player he grown
into he became one of the greatest NBA players of all time when Michael Jordan
came into the league in his rookie season he averaged 28 point 2 points per
game playing thirty eight point three minutes per game and in LeBrons rookie
season he averaged twenty point nine points per game playing thirty nine and
a half minutes per game so there you go not everyone is impactful their first
year in Vince’s sophomore season he averaged twenty five point seven points
per game improving his three-point shot percentage to 40 point three percent and
shot forty six point five percent from the field playing thirty eight point one
minutes per game DeRozan improved a lot his sophomore season he averaged 17.2
points per game shooting nine point six percent from the three-point line and
forty six point seven percent from the field playing thirty four point eight
minutes per game in Vince’s third season he averaged twenty seven point six
points per game shooting 40 point 8 percent from the three-point line
improving by 0.5 percent from his sophomore season and 46 percent from the
field in DeRozan third season his points per game average dipped by 0.5 percent
he averaged 16 points 7 points per game and 2 assists per game he shot twenty
six point one percent from the three-point line and forty two point two
percent from the field Vince suffered from injuries in his fourth season and
only able to play 60 games in the 60 games that he played during the 2000 to
2001 season he averaged twenty four point seven points per game shooting
thirty eight point seven percent from the three-point line and forty two point
eight percent from the field in Derozans fourth season he averaged 18 points per
game shooting thirty point five percent from the three-point line and 42 point
nine percent from the field due to knee injuries that Vince was suffering from
he was only able to play forty three games in his fifth season he missed most
of the first half of the season he missed 39 games in the forty three games
that he played in the 2002 to 2003 season he averaged twenty four point
seven points per game shooting thirty four point four percent from the three
point line and forty six point seven percent from the field playing thirty
four point two minutes per game in Derozans fifth season he averaged twenty two
point seven points per game shooting thirty point five percent from the
three-point line and forty two point nine percent from the field in Carter’s
sixth season he averaged twenty two point five points per game shooting
thirty eight point three percent from the three point line and forty-one point
seven percent from the field playing thirty eight point two minutes per game
in DeRozan sixth season he averaged twenty point one points per game
shooting 28.4% from the three-point line and forty-one point three percent from
the field in Vince Carter’s last and final season with the Toronto Raptors
playing only 20 games before being traded to the New Jersey Nets Vince
averaged fifteen point nine points per game shooting 32.2% from a three point
line and shot 41 point one percent from the field Vince took a different
statistics due to some issues who was having with Sam Mitchell the coach at
the time for the Toronto Raptors and he was also benched during fourth quarters
in his last days as a Raptor because Sam Mitchell was enforcing new
philosophies to the team to show Carter how things are newly done so his stats
suffered for it because Vince didn’t agree with the way things were newly
done in DeRozan sixth season he only played 60 games because he slipped and
tore his abductor longest tendon trying to score the basketball
he missed 22 games it’s clear that Vince Carter’s the better scorer Derozan
spent a longer time with the Raptors and still hasn’t scored more than Vince
Carter in a season the most he scored in his career was this past 2016 to 2017
season where he averaged 27.3 points per game there’s still room for DeRozan
because he’s entering his ninth season with the Raptors so there’s a
possibility he can pass Vince Carter in some areas if Vince Carter never
suffered knee injuries in his career he would have done even more spectacular
things as a raptor but unfortunately the knee injuries held him back defense in Vince Carter’s rookie season he averaged 1.1
steals per game and 1.5 blocks per game in his sophomore season he averaged 1.3
steals per game and 1.1 blocks per game in his third season he averaged 1.5
steals per game and 1.1 blocks per game and in its fourth season he averaged 1.6
steals per game and 0.7 blocks per game in his fifth season he averaged 1.1
steals per game and 1 block per game in his sixth season he averaged 1.2 steals
per game and 0.9 blocks per game before Vince was traded after 20 games into
the season with the Raptors in his final years he averaged 1.3 steals per game
and 0.8 blocks per game DeRozan in De Rozans rookie year he averaged 0.6 steals
per game and 0.2 blocks per game in his sophomore season he averaged 1 steal per
game and 0.4 blocks per game in his third year he averaged 0.8 steals per
game and 0.3 blocks per game in his fourth year he averaged 0.9 steals per
game and 0.3 blocks per game in his fifth season he averaged 1.1 steals per
game and 0.4 blocks per game in his sixth season he averaged 1.2 steals per
game and 0.2 blocks per game Vince Carter is clearly the better
defender so I give him the edge on defense as well
franchise records Vince Carter scored the most points in franchise history
he scored 51 points he did this back on February the 27th in the year 2000 until
former Raptor Terrence Ross tied his record when he scored 51 points against
the Los Angeles Clippers on January the 25th 2014
Vince was also the first person in franchise history to score 48 points
until a Charlie Villanueva scored 48 points on March the 26th 2006 those two
records are still Vince Carter’s records in my opinion because he’s the original
person to set them until you passed them he still owns them Vince is the only
person in franchise history to have a forty seven point game a forty six point
game a 45 point game and a forty four point game he also holds the franchise
record for having the most forty three point games in franchise history
he also holds the franchise record for having the most points scored in the
season with 2107 points Vince leads the franchise in career
points per game average with twenty three point four points per game after
eight seasons with the Toronto Raptors DeRozan has a career average of 19 point
three points per game so that goes to show how lethal Vince
Carter was as a scorer his points per game average is higher than the Derozans
and he only spent six and a half years in Toronto Vince also leades the franchise
in points per game average in a season scoring 27 points six points per game
DeRozan is second after scoring 27 point three points per game during this
past season Vince Carter also holds the record for
the most points scored in a playoff game scoring 50 points against the
Philadelphia 76ers back on May the 11th 2001
Vince Carter has a higher point per game average in the playoff than DeMar DeRozan
does and leads a franchise with twenty five point six seven points per game in
the playoffs with a total of 385 points scored and playing 15 games in the playoff
in just two playoff appearances DeRozan is second in the franchise with an
average of 21 point 71 points per game scoring 890 points in four playoff
appearances in 41 games Vince also has the highest points per game average in a
single playoff with 27 point to five points per game
DeRozan leades the franchise in field goals and free throws made DeRozan is
also the first person in franchise history to make the most free throws in
a game with 24 made he leades the franchise with the most free throws made
in a season DeRozan also leads the franchise with
the most seasons and playoff games played he has the most playoff points
scored in the playoffs in franchise history DeRozan is also the first
person in franchise history to score 20 points in the first
in a playoff game he did this back on April the 24th and 2015 against the
Washington Wizards in the first round DeRozan is also the first person in
franchise history to record five steals in a playoff game he did this earlier
on this year during the playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks on April the 27th in
the first round DeRozan also leads a franchise in
total playoff points scored with a total of 890 points which will
increase the longer he plays with the Raptors DeRozan also leads the franchise
with the most playoff points scored in a single playoff scoring 418 points
DeRozan also leads the franchise in total points scored of all time with a total
of eleven thousand four hundred and fifty-six points DeRozan is also the
first Raptor to ever score 40 points in a home opening game he did this against
the Detroit Pistons and the Raptors went on to win that game 109 to 91 two days
later against the Cleveland Cavaliers he scored 32 points but the Raptors lost 94
to 91 he beat Carter’s record of scoring 65 points through two season opening
games with a total of 72 points scored through two season opening games last
year on October the 31st against the Denver Nuggets
DeRozan scored 33 points DeRozan became the first Raptor to score three 30 point
games to begin a season on November the 2nd 2016
DeRozan scored 40 points tying Mike James franchise record with four
consecutive 30 point games he passed a franchise record two days later scoring
34 points against the Miami Heat and the Raptors went on to win the game 96 to 87
Derozan was the first person to score 30-plus points per game
in five straight games since Michael Jordan did it for six games back in the
1986 to 1987 season on November the 12th 2016 the Derozan scored 33 points against
the New York Knicks for the 8th 30 point game in nine games he became the fourth
NBA player to score 30-plus points in eight of the first nine games of a
season other players to do this where Michael Jordan world be free and tiny
Archibald on November 16 2016 he scored 34 points
against the Golden State Warriors DeRozan is the first player to nine
thirty point games in his team’s first 11 games since Michael Jordan did it
back in the 1987 to 1988 season earlier on this year last season on April the
7th the Derozan scored 38 points against the Miami Heat
DeRozan broke Vince Carter’s record scoring his 31st 30 point game in the
season DeRozan was also the first Raptor to be
named the Player of the Week three times in one season from a franchise-record
standpoint DeRozan edges Vince Carter 2 to 1 regular season and playoff success
because of Vince Carter the team was able to set League attendance records
and also make it to the playoffs for the first couple of times in franchise
history and to also have some of the best season records the franchise has
seen at the time in Vince Carter’s first playoff appearance in his sophomore season
he averaged 19 point three points per game one steal per game and one point
three blocks per game and 6.3 assists per game and six rebounds per game but
the Raptors lost to the New York Knicks 3-0 in the first round
back then the NBA used to have a best of five series in the first round but that
rule changed in the 2003 playoffs where teams play a best-of-seven series the
winner has to win four games still present till this day the next year in
Carter’s third year the Raptors made it to the playoffs again where they would
beat the New York Knicks in the first round getting their revenge from the
previous season but unfortunately they lost to the Philadelphia 76ers in the
second round in the conference semi-finals by a Missed buzzer beater shot
by Vince Carter if he made the shot they would have advanced to the Eastern
Conference Finals throughout the 2001 playoffs Vince Carter averaged 27 point
3 points per game 1.7 steals per game one point seven blocks per game four
point seven assists per game and 6.5 rebounds per game these were the only
two times that Vince Carter went through the playoffs being on the Toronto
Raptors DeRozan never made it to the playoffs until his fifth season which
would be the 2014 playoffs this was the first time that the Toronto Raptors made
it to the playoffs since 2008 since the Chris Bosh era during the 2013 to 2014
regular season the Toronto Raptors had 48 wins and 34 losses which was the best
regular season record in franchise history the Raptors lost to the Brooklyn
Nets in seven games in the 2014 playoffs during the series DeMar DeRozan averaged
twenty three point nine points per game one point one steals per game and 0.3
blocks per game and three point six assists per game and 4.1 rebounds per
game during the next season the 2014 to 2015 season the Raptors had their best
start in franchise history with a record of 24 wins and eight losses
leading the Eastern Conference Finals by the end of 2014 during this season the
Raptors broke their own record from the previous season winning 49 games the
Raptors were able to make it to the playoffs again in 2015 but they got swept by the
Washington Wizards in the first round in that series DeRozan averaged twenty
point three points per game 1.5 steals per game zero blocks per game
5.8 assists per game and 6.3 rebounds for
game in the 2015 to 2016 season it was the greatest season for the Toronto
Raptors in franchise history they opened up a new practice facility called the
Biosteel Centre in Exhibition Place on February the 10th 2016 plus the Raptors
hosted the first NBA all-star weekend in franchise history
this was one of the greatest NBA all-star weekend’s I’ve ever seen since
watching basketball the Raptors also had the best record in
franchise history with a record of 56 wins and 26 losses this was the first
time that they had the fourth best record throughout the whole NBA out of
all the season records in franchise history and the highest rank in
franchise history they were ranked 2nd in the East they were ranked right
behind the Cavaliers in the first round the Raptors were pushed to the limit by
the Indiana Pacers the series went to 7 games but the Raptors won this was the
first series that they’ve won in 15 years since the 2001 NBA Playoffs during
the Vince Carter era they were also pushed to the limit by the Miami Heat in
the second round the conference semi-finals they also won in 7 games I
don’t want to hear that the Raptors only won because Chris Bosh was out of the
playoffs due to having a blood clot in his leg I’m saying this because in the
next round the Raptors nearly forced the series to
go to 7 games in the Eastern Conference Finals against a heavy loaded Cleveland
Cavaliers squad with the best player in the world on it and we all know who that
person is LeBron James the Cleveland Cavaliers went on to win the
championship that season beating the greatest season team of all time that
made a lot of history during the season the Golden State Warriors Golden State
were the first team to win 24 games in a row without any losses to open up the
season plus they had the greatest season record of all time beating the Chicago
Bulls record of 72 wins and 10 losses that Chicago Bulls setback in the 1995
to 1996 season during the Michael Jordan era
Golden State won 73 games and lost nine games the Golden State Warriors cruised through
the playoffs until they versed the Oklahoma City Thunder Golden State ended
up being down 3-1 in this series but they came back and won in advance to the
NBA Finals in the NBA Finals the Cleveland Cavaliers were down three to
one to the Golden State Warriors but they came back to beat the Golden State
Warriors in seven games this was the first team in NBA history to come back
in the NBA finals from being down three to one that’s my point
if the Raptors can push a six-game series against that Cleveland Cavaliers
squad that went on to win the championship that year they would
definitely still beat the Miami Heat if Chris Bosh is playing so there’s no
argument that was the first time that the Toronto Raptors went to the Eastern
Conference Finals in franchise history throughout the 2016 NBA Playoffs Derozan averaged twenty point nine points one point one steals per game 0.2 blocks
per game 2.7 assists per game and 4.2 rebounds per game earlier on this year
last season the Raptors were able to make it to the NBA playoffs this was the
fourth consecutive time this was the first time in franchise history that the
Toronto Raptors made it to the playoffs for four seasons in a row Demar Derozan
edges Vince Carter in this category as well 2-2 as you can see while the
franchise is in DeMar DeRozans hands he’s had more success in the regular
season and in the playoffs than Vince had when he was the franchise player
Awards Vince Carter’s also the first person the Raptors franchise history to
win the Rookie of the Year award no one has done it since Vince Carter’s also
the first person in Raptors franchise history to be named the slam Bell
champion until former Raptor Terrence Ross also won the slam dunk contest back in
2013 DeRozan participated in the slam dunk
contest in 2010 and 2011 but he failed to win twice Vince Carter Edge’s DeRozan
in this category 3-2 Off the court accomplishments I felt like I had to add
this category because due to a player’s basketball success it opens up doors for
them in other areas Vince Carter was on the cover of NBA Live 2004 the only
covers that Vince wasn’t on was the NBA Live 2004 coverage exclusive for Spain
and France a player by the name of Raul Lopez was on the cover for Spain and
Tony Parker was on the cover for France Vince was also on the cover of the video
game inside drive 2002 which was an Xbox exclusive Vince also appeared in the
movie like Mike and fabolous music video for the song this is my party and
appeared in one episode of the TV show Moesha a documentary for Vince Carter
came up called the Carter effect by film director Sean Menard that premiered at
the Toronto International Film Festival about Carter’s impact in Toronto last
month in September it brought many athletes and basketball players to town
from LeBron James to Chris Bosh and many more
DeRozan accomplished something great as well he was on the cover for NBA 2k18
exclusively for Canada just like how Raul Lopez was on the NBA Live 2004 cover
exclusively for Spain and Tony Parker was on the NBA Live 2004 cover
exclusively for France DeRozan is the first athlete to be featured on the
cover of NBA 2k for the first Canadian Edition ever he’s the first Raptor to do
this plus there’s many more great things to come for DeRozan
overall Vince Carter is the better individual player but DeMar DeRozan is the better Raptors the Raptors have been more successful as an organization while
DeMar has been the franchise player DeMars going to continue to set
franchise records the longer he plays here theres certain records he can’t
break but he’s broken most of them already I think it’s time we put respect
on his name and the league too because he’s done a lot and like I said before
there’s more great things to come it’s Carter’s awards that edged him out
while tallying the numbers while comparing and like I said before if
Vince Carter never got injured he could have done spectacular things with the
Raptors but that’s not the case and that’s one of the biggest what ifs ever but
that’s it for the video guys please like and subscribe and comment below what you

  1. Vince Carter! I bet when he was playing without googling you can’t name 3 players that played with Vince Carter. Derozan is very good, but is nowhere without the complete team that they have

  2. Vince was on a team that depended on just him in a stronger eastern conference deMar had help every year in a week ass eastern conference

  3. Vince was just a dunker in a Raptors jersey he was injured his entire time in Toronto Demar is a better Rap and accomplised more and didn't deserve such a raw deal.

  4. VC is a better player. Derozan has a lot of talent around him and better organization. If you put vc in the current raptors they could be in the finals.
