Vince Carter speaks out on why he never tried to ring chase

However, according to the Hawks small forward, it doesn’t bother him as he never chased a ring either.

“It just wasn’t my thing. It’s just something that I wasn’t interested in doing. I mean to be a part of a team where I feel like I can help out, and play some minutes, is what I wanted to do,” the Hawks vet said when asked why he never chased a ring.

“I just wanted to play. You know? Yes I could lend my wisdom, and be an unbelievable mentor for guy. But sometimes showing is better than telling. You know? What you’re talking about in game situations, or positioning. Whatever the case may be. So it was just kind of one of those things that I just didn’t want to do, and I don’t think I could handle. I would be miserable as a player. Just because I love competing. I mean, anybody who watches me play, I can’t just sit down and just watch the game.”

His highschool Mainland High should be on a basketball fans list the next time they visit Daytona Beach area.

1255 W Intl Speedway Blvd. Daytona Beach, FL 32114

The high school is beautiful and a nice statue of Vince Carter is there too. I have ate at this restaurant twice but I believe he sold the property.

It has been such an honor having Vince on our team the last two seasons. I hope he continues to work with our franchise and one day wins a championship.

Lloyd Pierce is the head coach of the Hawks, and remembers the whirlwind night in early March when the Hawks were playing their final game of the regular season on the same evening when the league announced they were suspending the regular season.


Spoiler:
“First of all, it’s been really cool to have Vince Carter on our team. He and I are the same age, we’re like eight months apart, we grew up in the same era and our main conversations are about hip-hop. It’s funny because the younger guys listen to all the new stuff, and as you know, Vince is a big music guy, and that’s our joke, because him and myself and our coaching staff, we are allies in terms of our musical taste. We had a trip earlier this season to the Outkast mural in Atlanta, which was born out of a conversation Vince and I had, about our disapproval of how our younger guys weren’t recognizing the greatness of Outkast and how we needed to educate these guys on the history of Atlanta hip-hop.

“I remember [Vince’s final game], right before we broke our huddle to start the game, I said, ‘Hey, this could very well be our last game of the season, just so you guys understand.” And as soon as I said that, Dewayne Dedmon on cue says, “****, Vince, this is gonna be your last game.” It just hit everyone. It was one of those moments. Vince was like, “Wow.”

“So we come back to the locker room at halftime, and I’m getting hit up from our staff guys because Rudy Gobert had tested positive and they stopped the game in Oklahoma City, and I told the guys, this is probably our last game of the season. We were down at halftime, Trae [Young] goes off in the fourth quarter and we get it to overtime and at this point, I’m still trying to win a game. The Knicks make a run and the game gets away from us.

“Then you start hearing the Vince chants from the fans. I took a look and saw the players on the bench rallying around Vince. It wasn’t a thought of mine. I needed help. I was caught up in the game. I heard the fans, I pointed at Vince, he took his jersey off and checked into the game. We have a play called rugby. I told Trae to run rugby. Vince inbounds the ball to Trae, who pushes it up the floor, and he turns around and throws a rugby pass to Vince who drains the three.

“That was a great ending and thankfully we were able to do it. I’m really thankful for the fans for yelling at me to get Vince back in the game.”

I can think of no better way to close out this thread. Congrats, Vince.

And thanks.
