Vince Carter won’t be enjoying his remaining recreation when the Kings finish their season at house in opposition to the Rockets on Wednesday night time.
Carter instructed ESPN and The Undefeated’s Marc Spears that he plans on enjoying a outstanding 21st season.
“I plan on coming back next season,” Carter instructed Spears. “I plan on coming back one more season.”
“I just think that after next season it is time,” he continued. “It’s been great … maybe two more years. But, you know, in my mind, I think it’s time for one more.”
Carter, 41, has proven the type of humility, grace and willingness to alter his recreation and take a lowered function so as to elongate his corridor of fame caliber profession. That is one thing not a variety of former superstars are keen to do (see: Allen Iverson).
Carter signed a one-year, $eight million contract with the Kings this previous summer time which implies he might be a free agent as soon as once more and can hopefully catch on with a staff that’s close to the highest of the NBA standings as an alternative of the underside.
He has averaged 5.three factors, 2.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists on 39% taking pictures in 57 appearances for the Kings this season and sure has had a constructive impact on the Kings younger roster and gamers like DeAaron Fox and Bogdan Bogdanovic.
Carter will be a part of Robert Parrish, Kevin Garnett and fellow present star and member of the 1998 NBA Draft class, Dirk Nowitzki, as the one gamers in NBA historical past to play 21 seasons.
Can we see Vince Carter again in a Raptors uniform for yet one more season? Especially rocking their mid-90s cartoonish Dinosaur pinstripe jerseys that was all the fad in that period.
I doubt anybody ever thought Vince Carter can be the type of participant to play effectively into his 40s, however right here we’re. Maybe we also have a Vinsanity spotlight second or two left on the horizon.
