Since being traded by the Toronto Raptors during the 2004-05 season, Vince Carter hasn't always received a warm welcome when he has returned to the Air Canada Centre.

Wednesday night was different.

The Raptors are celebrating their 20th anniversary, so they will be reflecting back on the past throughout the season. With Carter making his only scheduled appearance in Toronto for the year on Wednesday, the team played a touching tribute video to the Memphis Grizzlies guard.

As a way to show their appreciation for the greatest player in franchise history, Raptors fans gave him a standing ovation. The tribute meant enough to the 37-year-old that it made him emotional.

Raptors fans still may not be happy with the way that Carter left town. However, on this night, they did the classy thing and showed some love to Vinsanity.
