Before we get started here, I want to make it clear that I love Vince Carter. Big Vince Carter guy talking to you right now. The dunk contest in 2000 was basketball porn to a young Drew Franklin.
But Vince is in the doghouse with one of his biggest fans after his antics last night in the Suns-Grizzlies game, when he landed a cheap shot on Devin Booker, a friend of the program.
See for yourself:
Was Booker running his mouth beforehand? Probably. (Okay, definitely.) Did Booker sell that fall? Yeah, sure.
But Vince Carter knows better than to raise his elbow like that. The Vince Carter I know and love would’ve waited until the next trip down the court and then jumped over him.
Maybe Vince is still upset from the last time the Suns and Grizzlies met.
