Tweet of the Day: Vince Carter

Generally, the ultimate determinant of where a player’s legacy is inscribed in the history books is their championship ring count. Obviously not every player to suit up on the hardwood has won a ring, yet we still remember some more than others because of their undeniable talents. To name a few of the usual suspects: Charles Barkley, Chris Webber, Karl Malone, Patrick Ewing, Reggie Miller, Bernard King, Pistol Pete Maravich, Dominique Wilkins, Allen Iverson and of course, the birthday boy, Vince Carter.

Thanks again to everyone for the bday wishes. Enjoy your Sunday, be easy!!!!!

Vince Carter

Did Vince Carter really just turn 37 today? Air Canada’s career may have plateaued quite a few years ago, but it’s hard to forget some of the amazing moments he’s left us with. For years, Carter was an icon. Vinsanity we called him. Arguably one of the most talented players to never put it together, and undisputedly one of the greatest slam dunk artists to ever walk the planet.

Carter may have played in a “down-era” of the NBA, but there is no denying that, in his prime, his presence would have been the same in any generation. Just listen to the tone in Kevin Harlan’s voice. He was a superstar.

    I would’ve used the vid of Vince Carter jumping over that center in the Olympics as that was just ridiculously sweet.
