Long removed from his ‘Vinsanity’ days, Vince Carter’s a role-playing, veteran swingman who’s nearing the end of the road; though Carter surprises with the occasional, random rim rocker, he is a mere mortal these days, a sharp contrast from his ‘Half-Man, Half-Amazing’ act a few years back; jumper has aged gracefully – one of MEM’s better options from deep – great at spotting up & coming off curls; underrated PnR passer, though opportunities are few and far between; has finally found a rhythm w/ the Grizz – VC is still going very strong in Year 19!*; arguably (shouldn’t be an argument), THE best, & most ‘showstopping’, dunker of all time; future Hall of Famer? • now that’s a debate

*unbelievable to type, unbelievable to fathom VC’s been in the league 19 years
