Toronto Raptors Greats Alvin Williams and Morris Peterson Talk AI’s Deadly Crossover, David Stern and Adam Silver + Vince Carter Putting Toronto on the MAp

We couldn’t leave the All-Star Game in Toronto without talking to some Raptors legends. While broadcasting live from T Dot we had Alvin Williams and Morris Peterson join the Sway in the Morning crew.

Broadcasting from the Reebok room Sway had to speak to Williams about Allen Iverson. Playing against each other in high school, college, and again in the NBA, Williams elaborates on how hard it was to defend an AI crossover.

As the David Stern legacy has come and gone with Adam Silver now taking over the role of commissioner, Williams and Peterson speak on what both men have brought to the game of basketball.

Born in Flint, Michigan and residing there now at the conclusion of his NBA career, Peterson details the tragedy that have been going on with the water crisis. Seeing friends and family members with rashes and lesions from contaminated water, Peterson says he’s looking to spread awareness on every platform he gets.

To conclude the interview both men speak on the city they called home for so many years. Both considering Toronto their second home, Williams and Peterson outline how the Raptors have transformed into a team with a serious playoff threat. Vince Carter is the topic of discussion as they talk about how Toronto was first put on the map as a basketball city.
