Most Unpopular Raptor of All-Time Bracket: The Failing Four

One of these four men is close to his having his own “One Shining Moment.”

We’ve made it. The Failing Four. Turkoglu, Bargnani, Mourning and Childs. These are the four most unpopular Raptors of all-time. But there can be only one.

Turk and Bargs were obviously locks to make it this far, but I didn’t think while starting this entire process that people’s vitriol for Alonzo Mourning still ran so strong. And that with the amount of likeable guards this team has employed, Chris Childs would end up as the most disliked. (The memory of this game still haunts, I guess.)

Playoffs are on the horizon, but let’s settle this once and for all before the weekend.

With that, we bring you the Failing Four.

Game 1 - #1 Hedo Turkoglu vs. #2 Alonzo Mourning

Hedo breezed through his regional final, beating Rudy Gay 832 votes to 115, earning 88% of the public’s hate.

He’s gotta be licking his chops (or his hands) to grab a berth in the final of this esteemed tournament.

Meanwhile, Alonzo Mourning has some bigger fish to fry down in Miami. #TrumpsAmerica

Stick to sports with your votes people, stick to spo — LOL who am I kidding. The hell you doing, Zo?

Game 2 - #1 Andrea Bargnani vs. #6 Chris Childs

Just like George Mason in 2006, Chris Childs’ Cinderella run looks to be coming to an end as he faces the juggernaut of disdain: Il Mago.

I mean, there’s no way Childs’ departure from the team made people as happy as Andrea getting his behind shipped to Dolan’s Deathstar.

Although, if Chris somehow wins this matchup, you could say it was just Childs’ Play.
