Vince Carter honoured with Raptors' tribute video

Vince Carter has divided Toronto Raptors fans since he departed in 2004, but the past was set aside Wednesday night when the team paid tribute to the former star. 

As a part of the Raptors 20th-anniversary festivities, the team paid tribute to Carter with a video montage in the first quarter of a game against his current team the Memphis Grizzlies. 

The reaction to Vince Carter is usually mixed when he plays at the Air Canada Centre, but he received a standing ovation from the Raptors faithful this time. 

The emotional tribute brought tears to the forward's eyes.
