Vince Carter in Toronto for possible title-clinching Game 5
The Toronto Raptors have a chance to clinch their first-ever NBA title on Monday night, and one familiar face will be there to see it if it happens.
Cameras caught ex-Raptors star Vince Carter arriving in Toronto for Game 5 against the Golden State Warriors with the team holding a 3-1 series lead.

Carter, now 42 and still playing, was the first great player in Raptors franchise history and had a transformative impact in his six years there from 1998 to 2004, not only on the team but also on Canadian basketball as a whole. Many Raptors fans still harbor resentment for him however because of the way that he quit on their team and forced his way out via trade.
The eight-time All-Star seems to have mended some fences with Toronto, but it remains to be seen how the Raptors faithful will feel about him partaking in the celebration should they indeed capture the NBA championship.
