That's nice of him to do that for UNC after he bailed on his team in 2001 to attend his graduation there.

Donating 2.5 mil is huge, and to be applauded regardless. As for Carter the ballplayer, he's definitely not anyone's first option right now and I can't call a guy who deosn't defend the "ultimate role player." He's still probably starter quality but he's rapidly turning into the old version of Allan Houston.

I love Vince Carter. One of my favorite players of all time. He seems like a great guy too.

Anyway, one of my favorite VC moments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYXhLAvgvug

I always thought he was actually pretty clutch. He caught a bad rep for a while with some injuries in the early 2000's and the Raptors debacle at the end has scarred an entire franchise's fanbase. But I didn't think he really choked any more than other stars who have come through the league. In fact, just the opposite, I tend to remember some spectacularly clutch moments from Mr. Carter, including but not limited to the clip posted above.

I guess his biggest unclutch moment could be listed as the shot he missed against Philadelphia in '01. And even further, he shot 6/18 from the field (compared to AI's 8/27). I just watched this game yesterday in fact. Both of those guys faced two to three defenders nearly any time they held on to the ball for longer than two seconds or attempted to make a move to the hole.

It was interesting to watch because on one hand, both players wanted to try to be "the man" for their teams and score regardless of defenders. But they also did a great job of moving the ball when they had to, finding the open man (as can be shown with Iverson's 16 assists and Carter's 9). I think that game was more about every single player except for Iverson and Carter. The better supporting cast won that game. And yeah, Carter had a semi-clean look at the end, but if I had to guess, it was rushed, which I can't blame him for. He caught the inbounds pass with 2 seconds left and after spending time with a pump fake, he knew he had to hurry. But it was an interesting watch nonetheless.
