At 37 years old, Vince Carter has been able to transform his game from an everyday highlight reel to super-sub. He’s also been able to extend his career during the process.
Carter hasn’t just noted that he wants to extend his career, but that he wants to extend it with the Dallas Mavericks.
“My fingers are crossed,” he said. “Next year might be even better. We can attract some more people, more talent. Now I know my role, and I know the system, it’s second nature to me now. I know the city very well. I’m stepping out, going to SMU games and getting out and about. I’m very comfortable here.
Carter continues via the Dallas Morning News.
“I like the guys. I like the nucleus we have here. With my role and the way I play and the way I go about things, it really helps guys here. And they like that. Hopefully, that’s enough so that they can still have trust in me enough to play significant minutes and help the other guys out.”
Carter was brought in during the 2012 offseason. In his two-plus seasons with the Mavericks, he’s averaged 12 points and has shot 39.1% from 3.
I think I’ve earned the right to stick around
If Carter can continue his strong play off the bench and help the Mavericks get back into the playoffs, he may be right.
