Out of sheer boredom, I decided to make one of these threads. Yeah, so you can ask anything you want, basketball related, non-basketball related, and i'll try my best to answer all the questions you have for me.
Which of the following three is the reason that Vince Carter is not your favorite player anymore?
1: He has no heart and quit on teams
2: He is soft and doesnt like contact
3: He has a receding hairline.
I guess a bit of reason #1 and 2... but there are several reasons. When he was playing for Toronto, I was in constant defense of his character (in his final years). It had gotten to the point where he just refused to take it to the basket and if his jumper wasn't falling, his game was useless. It was also at the point where every time he stepped on the court, people would hold their breath and hope that he didn't get "injured."
Then, all of a sudden he goes to NJ, becomes motivated again, and starts toughing out all of the minor injuries that he couldn't play through in Toronto. But all in all, VC is a top 10 talent in the league, it's just a shame that he hasn't fulfilled that tremendous potential that he once had.
