After 22 seasons, Vince Carter is now officially retired 

Post#1 » by Drygon » Thu Jun 4, 2020 7:22 am

After NBA 2019-20 season got postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic, Vince said he would retire if he wasn't gonna play anymore.

Yesterday, Woj said that NBA will resume & Atlanta Hawks weren't invited. Which automatically ended his playing career.

Shame it had to be this way, but the man has had a tremendous career, and I'm also glad that he got to play his last game at Barclay's, where he got a great reception, and tribute from Nets.

Man, I wish he'd comeback one last year, come to BK on vet min and play some spot minutes here and there for like 30 or 40 games, hit a couple big dagger threes in the playoffs and cop a ring with us.

Easily one of my favorite Net of all time.

That one season he willed us from the worst team in the league to making the playoffs was prime VC and still have great memories of some of those games(Remember him killing the Raptors?).

It's a shame he didn't want to go for a chip like many other legends do once they are past their prime but I respect his decision.

It's a VVV CCCC 333 will always be ingrained in my brain.

Always will be my favorite player of all time. I have a feeling he may come back next year but I was really hoping he would win a chip.
