He didn't throw any fits like most guys do, he just wants to keep playing and contribute.

It's the only good thing about VC being washed up now. He kind of knows it and accepts it.

Prime VC was something else though. One of the most exciting players of all time.

I think he's remorseful more than anything else. That's why he's not making much noise anymore.

People say I 'hate' Kobe. That is false. He frustrates me.

You wanna know who I 'hate'?

VINCE CARTER

And I guess this is why.

Him accepting his new role is nothing new. He's always been a conformist. Not a revelation to anybody that's watched basketball.

You know what I LOVE and respect about Bean?

His stubbornness to NOT conform. Sure, he has a desire and maniacal NEED to be the best, that is what drives him, what makes him great. What made MJ, Bird, Magic and others great.

Vince Carter had the gifts to be the GOAT, he had the gifts to blow Kobe out of the water, but he didn't have the drive, he conformed. Not to say he was a bad player or that he didn't improve. But he never had the same desire that MJ and Kobe had/have.

So I'm not surprised that he's accepted his role so 'gracefully'.

Look at the desire that Iverson has. He's not willing to conform, we may write them off as not letting go, but I'd rather see somebody with the passion to not let go, then somebody just go 'accept' it.

Fck that!!!! accepting is for punk p*ssy quitters with not heart or drive.

Seems like lose-lose to me. If he accepts his role he is a "p*ssy quitter with no heart", but if he tries to be a superstar that scores 25 a game even though he has declined significantly, he is a "selfish cancer to the team".

I understand that. It is hypocritical, but it is what it is.
