Vince Carter is currently 37th on the NBA all time Scoring list at 19974 This means if he has a big game vs Portland he could reach the ELITE 20,000 mark as soon as tomorrow. On ESPN.

Fact: only 2 players whom have passed the 20,000 are not hall of famers. This is a pretty big achievement.


*Note to Raptor fans: may we plz avoid making this a bash Carter thread. Thank you.

heres to VC ha: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0jAPQb_dNw

the heart-stopping, windmill-dunking, heartstop-jumping, 360-driving, 5-o'clock shadow-smiling, womanzing, headband-wearing, team-changing, knee-bracing, game-pacing, shoe-lacing, showcasing, shoulder-bracing, free-mason, Vince "I shower with my headband on" Carter!

Whats more amazing about this feat is he reached this milestone without ever going to the charity stripe! All hail Air Canada, nosediving his way to the history books!

I doubt Wince makes it, but he has a chance. The thing that helps him is the dunk contest. w/o that dunk contest, i'd say he surely wouldn't make the HoF.

If this were the 80's or early 90's I would say he wouldn't make it into the hall of fame. But, because of how things are looked at in todays game I think he will eventually be inducted.

Who knows... he could still wind up on a championship team within the next few seasons.

I dont think people would take him as human if he was playing in the 80s...to be honest that would have been frightning to have an athlete like Carter in the 80s..
I mean MJ was incredibly athletic but you know what i mean

Good for Carter.

I don't think he is a hall of famer based on his achievements and how he has played the game (sandbagged it alot). The only thing that I think can make people wonder is his series versus AI and dunk contest showings. Other that I just don't see it.

It is still a remarkable feat though

I think that's a good point. His EPIC playoff series vs Iverson was the best Playoff series Ive ever watched (well Im a VC fan so kinda biased). His showmanship, rookie dominace (ROY), dunk contest, PPG, 20,000 mark, all star aperances...all that are actually imporant. He really was significant to the league if you think about it. THe best dunker of all time might seem like "oh its just 2 points" but if you think about it...Vince Carter is legendary and a lot is based off his dunks but hey it is what it is. His 08-09 season with the Nets was honestly one of the most inspirational seasons Ive seen VC play. He was leading all young kids on a team picked to be last and got them in the playoff chase and developed Harris and Lopez and the year he leaves they are the worst team history...that will be overlooked but VCs career isnt as ****** as ppl make it out to be. His Raptor Days, early nets days? come on man. incredible player in his prime

He was a great player, but lets be real here. Many would take a prime Iverson, Kobe, McGrady, or Wade over him at his prime in that SG position. Some would even take Ginobili because of the difference in how hard they would play.

To me VC had superstar potential outside of being the best dunker in history in my opinion, but he never lived up to that billing solely because he didn't care to, which is a shame because he probably was the most physically blessed SG to come into the league in the past 15 years or so.

He was a perennial all star that could have been better but just didn't play or compete hard enough at times to achieve it.

I don't like or hate VC, but lets be honest. Vince in his up and coming years was insane. There were reasons why they called him the heir to the throne (MJ). He was better than TMac during his stretch with the Raps and some believed he was better than Kobe. It wasn't till later when Tmac became more popular.

Of course, once we figured out he was a slacker, everyone hated him.

I think that series and his dunk contests stick out more than a whole body of work. I'm guilty of that because I still remember the way he and AI went at it and the show he put on.

When you step back and really watch some old VC stuff though you really see the difference between when he cared and when he didn't. Then when you look at his potential and how he brought it in comparison to his direct peers in Kobe, AI, and T-Mac you have to just shake your head and ask, what could he have been if he really cared just about 75% of the time?

yea, but being great for 6 years gets you into the hall of fame? I don't think so...I think a decade of dominance should be enough, and Carter didn't do that. especially in the playoffs.

Vince's impact on the league I feel is very underated. I could be homer on that. But I agree on the point that he never lived up to his potential (even tho those were HUGE expectaitons and he lived to a LOT that gets overlooked). He truly was the most physically blessed SG with the most god given talent IVE ever seen. His skill set is off the charts and that is why everything gets overlooked because his expectations were to be still running the talk of whos better Kobe or Vince? And dont get me wrong I loovvee Tmac but that dude had a 2 year prime ha Id take VC anyday. And honestly I dont think Wade's skill set is near a prime AI,VC, Kobe, or Tmac. Hes a beast non the less but he never had that jordan esque like skill.

telent means nothing without the hard work and drive to back it up. Like kblo247 said, he had the potential to be great, but his drive [physically and metaphorically] faultered. You can't put a guy into the hall of fame just for his highlights.

I don't think he will get into the hof.

That dunk contest was out of this world ( BEST EVER ) and when he jumped over that 7 footer and almost punched kg in the face after I couldn't believe my eyes....

But he fell in love with his j, played little defense, no rings...wasn't ever known as a leader, played apathetically.... Idk. I just don't see him making it.

Congrats tho

Karl Malone is one of the best power forward of all time and John Stockman is one of the best point guards of all time. Please dont put Karl Malone and John Stockton reference to Vince Carter show some respect. Vince CARTER QUIT ON HES TEAM THATS WHAT I AM TRYING TO GET AT. I DONT CARE ABOUT HES 20,000 POINTS AND HES THE BIGGEST DOUCHE AND A LOSER. PLEASE STOP. VINCE IS A QUITTER. BEFORE U CALL ME OUT DO YOUR RESEARCH. Vince Carter quit on hes team yes.

Immaturity at it's finest...

as much as i hate the fact that VC ditched Toronto franchise, it is very common this era. But with this logic it's safe to say we should count out Shaq (ditched Orlando), Lebron (c-leave-land), Bosh (ditched Toronto), Tmac (ditched Orlando AND Toronto), Melo (quitting on Denver)

I'm prolly even missing a few..not saying it's right but saying it happens these days. Kids are spoiled.

kblo247
01-14-2011, 09:18 PM
Quit and ditched are two different things. LeBron left and many players have asked for trades but they were still professionals and played hard before being dealt.

Vince flat out quit on the raptors and admitted to not playing hard during the end of his stay there. That was unprofessional on his part so he has nothing in common with Shaq, LeBron, Bosh, or Carmelo.

While I totally agree, at least he had the courage to admit he quit. It would have been very easy for him to not say that.

I don't think Vince is a first, or even second ballot HOFer, but there are a lot of people in the HOF who you wouldn't expect. IMO, he gets in eventually.

The best argument I've ever seen for Vince Carter being HOF worthy was provided here on PSD over a year ago by a poster who I butt heads with regularly, called "theUuord" or something like "Ulourd". Anybody remember that guy? Total Vince Carter homer but he knew his facts and presented a good argument.

If somebody was willing to search through his posts you could present a good argument for Vince as a HOFer.

That is a good point. Was Melo honestly not quitting when he only put in 8 points the other night during trade talks? or Lebron in the playoffs.

call me dumb idc but I never really looked into HOF despite being a long time NBA fan. Who exactly makes the calls/votes for who gets in the HOF? That could be a determining factor.
Id say second ballot he gets in.

I'd rather have a career like Pippen, Stockton, Thomas, Magic Johnson, Finley, Cousy, Jason Kidd, Dumars, Lamibere, Rasheed Wallace, Dennis Johnson, Steve Nash, Dennis Rodman, Billups, Bill f@$%ing Russell, Mourning, Horace Grant, Mark Jackson and a host of others who have NOT scored 20 000+ than a career like Carter's, or Tom Chambers, or Mitch Richmond, Walk Bellamy, Dan Issel, or Hal Greer. Even being to play in the NBA, let alone score as much as Carter is impressive, but as the league goes on from decade to decade, scoring 20 000+ isn't as big a deal as the entire package of your career. All-around player, character, winning, being competative. I'd rather be a guy who was a great teammate or role player and made the most of his talents, than a guy like Carter who was gifted with such amazing talent and uncerachieved as much as he has. I mean this in context. Carter is clearly one of the most talented players in the league, even now, and one of only a handful of guys who has managed to average over 20 per game ten straight years and over 20+ a game for his career... but as talented as he is, he could have been mentioned along with Kobe and Jordan if he had applied himself like those to did, rather than be in the company of tom Chambers (which is still pretty good company).

He gets the golf clap from me on this one. A golf clap with a snarky eye-roll.

He has always been an underrated scorer. Him being an unbelievable dunker, overshadowed his scoring abilities

29 Points, 12 Rebounds, and 5 Assists means Carter's career is over?

Now if VC doenst get into the HOF...anyone who glances at the HOF list would see him sticking out like a sore thumb not having that HOF asterik. They'd be like what? Everyone surrounding him and even behind him on the list has a HOF asterik? he's a top 40 all time scorer? the answer. oh hes a quitter and didnt try...he didnt try yet he just passed the 20,000 career point mark?
it's good though it is Vince's fault I guess you could say. That one month controversy of ditching out on the Raptors overshadows anything he accomplished or did. The 51 pt games..the 8 consecutiv 3s in the playoffs. the 22+/5/5 career stats..the amazing sight we all saw back in the day..

it is what it is. he didnt reach his expectations (WHICH WERE TO BE THE NEXT JORDAN DAMN THATS TOUGH) but he sure was an incredible player in his prime.

I feel like no one watched him in NJ. I think he was the most underrated player I have ever seen when in NJ even 08-09. He was playing like any other legend, doing things only Vince could do and somehow slowly fading in the media.

Ill give u hes old an all now. but in NJ he was the most underrated player ive ever watched. Some things he did was unreal.
