Vince Carter has officially retired from the sport of basketball after 22 years of service. Carter was drafted by the Toronto Raptors and launched basketball into the Great North like nobody has ever done. Carter is 19th in NBA history, an 8x All-Star and one of the best slam dunk specialists ever.
How can we forget the slam dunk contest in 2000, Carter shocked the world with his one arm in the hoop dunk. Vince Carter put Toronto on the map that year. I firmly believe that without Vince Carter, we don’t see basketball in Canada.
While the Canadian dollar was dropping, Carter and co. managed to thrill and entertain Canadians from Vancouver to Montreal and keep the Raptors above water.
Vince Carter is a legend and should be a strong consideration for the HOF.
