The Mavericks beat the Spurs 109-108 on a Vince Carter three-pointer at the buzzer. Down 108-106, Carter got the ball off the inbounds with 1.7 seconds left, pump-faked Manu Ginobili into the stratosphere, and drained a three from the corner as time expired. The play was reviewed and upheld, and the Mavs now lead the… » 4/26/14 7:24pm 4/26/14 7:24pm

Vince Carter's Drug Rehab Facility Is Broken Down And Closing

Did you know Vince Carter plopped down $1.6 million in 2008 toward the construction of a drug rehabilitation facility in Bunnell, Fla., a town half an hour up the road from Daytona Beach? Did you know that Stewart-Marchman-Act Behavioral Healthcare, the operators of the $8 million facility, named it in Carter's honor… » 3/08/13 4:30pm 3/08/13 4:30pm

Vince Carter Airballed A Finger-Roll Last Night

At first, the best part of this clip is how the Kings pretty much allow Carter to traipse down the lane for what should have been one of his signature dunks. Not too long ago, Carter would have obliged by giving all of us something to marvel at. But he's 35 now, and it must be harder and harder for him to reach those… » 4/11/12 10:15am 4/11/12 10:15am

Vince Carter Reminds Us That He's Still Vince Carter

Yeah, We Hate To Be The Ones To Tell You This, Vince ...

An amusing side note from the Nets' late-night last-second loss to the Clippers last night. The NBA All-Star starting lineups were announced last night, and our man Gilbert Arenas edged out Vince Carter — who almost always makes these teams — for the second guard spot in the Eastern Conference. When Carter was asked… » 1/26/07 11:00am 1/26/07 11:00am

Vince Carter, Back In Toronto: Awesome Idea!

Last night, the New Jersey Nets — our favorite team to play in NBA Live, by the way; if only they'd just move to Brooklyn already — handled the Toronto Raptors, helped of course by Vince Carter, whose exit from Toronto was one step removed from Tom Cruise refusing to leave the South Park closet until they sent him… » 11/02/06 11:45am 11/02/06 11:45am
