I remember when he was drafted, but don't remember much about his Toronto year aside from some highlights and his dunk contest with Vince.
What kind of potential did he show back then? Did folks think he was going to become a future legend/superstar like Kobe, or was the hype limited? I know Kobe's main issues in his first 2-3 years was the showing off, the airballs, and lack of defense (I used to always hear this complaint back then), but we all saw the flashes of brilliance. What were the issues/criticisms of T-Mac in his first three years?
