Vince Carter Proud Of His Legacy In Canada


“It’s a great feeling. For someone who I am now playing against to hear them say I was their hero while growing up and now I’m playing against, first of all, it makes me feel old. I was a Dr. J fan so I couldn’t imagine growing up idolizing Dr J and then playing against him. I did play against Michael Jordan and I had a very strong appreciation for him. When I played against Jordan, I was like, dang. I’m very appreciative for it and I’m very thankful for it. I’m glad I’m still able to be around to play around some of these guys now that are current NBA players and future NBA superstars. It’s just the ground work that was laid. The Raptors’ fans who weren’t really old enough to understand how much fun it was to really come to the games and be a part of it. It was fun. Night in and night out it was a packed house. Loud as hell.”
