When I think of guys that didn’t get the most out of their talents (he was easily the most talented of these 3) he’s on Mount Rushmore.
I don't see a good argument for Carter being on that. There are plenty of guys from his generation, alone, that were highly talented and achieved way less than Vince Carter.
Stephon Marbury, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Tracy McGrady and Steve Francis. To name a few.
I would definitely put TMac on there too. I don’t think any of those other guys had Vince’s talent. Vince should have had a stretch where he was arguably the best player in the game and he didn’t even ever make a first team all NBA or be the guy on a team that won 50 games.
