The world of basketball has many revered greats such as Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and LeBron James. However, amidst the legends, we also have another player, a player who is known as one of the greats of basketball, but the player most people don’t talk about often.
In case you haven’t guessed it so far, I am talking about Vince Carter; one of the greatest basketball players of all time. It is a strange situation that not many people talk about the amazing player he is. Keeping all of those things on the list, I decided to talk about some of the things you need to know about Vince Carter.
While he is not as talked about as some of the other immortals in the basketball world, Carter is known as one of the most prolific players of all time in the field of basketball. Especially when it comes to his agility, and the vertical leap he was able to pull off. Many people though that the vertical jump was a one-time thing, but as a matter of fact, he has proven time and again that he’s capable of doing it. In addition to that, Carter happens to be one of seven people who have actually played in at least 20 NBA sessions.
If you ever want to judge an athlete, you can always have a look at their accolades. In case of Vince Carter, there are a lot of them that you could look at. He has won so many awards in different distinctions – however, I am only going to take a look at some of the main ones.
- 8 times NBA all start selection.
- Olympic gold medalist in 2000.
- 2 times All-NBA winner.
- NBA slam dunk champion.
These are just the few of money.
