Back in his prime, Vince Carter wasn’t just another player in the NBA. He was one of the best; everyone knew who he was. Whether he was raining in 3s, dunking on centers, or being the face of the Toronto Raptors, you knew who “Vinsanity” was.
Like other stars before and after him, he has faced both failure and success. His biggest test came in 2001. Game 7 against Allen Iverson and the Philadelphia 76ers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, he had the same shot he had to end game 3 for the Dallas Mavericks against the San Antonio Spurs.
With the make, the Raptors would advance to the next round, but if he misses, his and his team’s season is over.
An amazing (and must watch) video put together by Max Frishberg (@MaxaMillion711) pins the past and present together for the man formally known as “Half-Man Half-Amazing”.
