Vince Carter Basketball Career
Vince Carter earned the nicknames “Vinsanity”, “Air Canada”, and “Half Man, Half Amazing” over the course of his 22-year NBA career. He started playing basketball after starring in football and volleyball back in his Mainland High School in Daytona Beach. He was a 1995 McDonald’s All-American and received offers from 77 NCAA Division I colleges.
Carter chose North Carolina and played three years at the collegiate level before enlisting for the 1998 NBA Draft. The Golden State Warriors drafted him in the fifth overall pick but traded him for Antawn Jamison. Carter broke out as an immediate star for the Toronto Raptors, leading them to their first-ever playoff season in 2000. He showcased his best abilities for the Canadian team as a dunker and three-point shooter, finishing his career as the sixth-highest three-point shooter at the time of his retirement. Carter also won the dunk contest that year before seeing the Raptors through to the Eastern Conference semi-finals after a 47-win season.
Carter’s brilliant athletic abilities finally started to deter when his knees began to give out. Even after going through surgery in 2001, Air Canada missed a number of games between 2001 and 2003. An injury-prone ending to his time with the Raptors saw Carter switch to the New Jersey Nets. He enjoyed his best scoring years in New York and represented the side for five seasons. In 2009, Orlando Magic traded for him. Carter reached his first-ever Conference final with the team but did not spend more than a year in Orlando. He then bounced around the league spending time with the Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies and finally the Atlanta Hawks before calling time on his career.
Carter retired from professional basketball in 2020 when the NBA season got suspended because of COVID-19. “Vinsannity” finished his NBA career with 8 All-Star appearances and 2 All-NBA team selections.
