April 2000: Raptor veterans revolt against Butch Carter
During the teams first ever playoff appearance, coach Butch Carter upsets his veteran players by criticizing their performance and relying more heavily on his younger players for offence. How dare a coach call plays for a motivated Vince Carter or a healthy Tracy McGrady! The unhappy veterans, lead by Doug Christie and Dee Brown, display their leadership and maturity by deciding to express their displeasure with their coach—not by speaking to him, but by annoying him.
Since Carter had a pet peeve with players wearing headbands, the disgruntled Raptors showed up on game day looking vintage McEnroe. The classy veterans also made liberal use of “finger-quotes”, wore castinettes around their ankles, and sang ‘Whoops There It Is’ after every made basket.
