Atlanta Hooks’s Vince Carter announced his retirement after 22 seasons in the NBA, a record high during which he made his name with his overwhelming throwing marks.
Carter is considered one of the best specialists in overwhelming pitches throughout the ages and previously said that the 2019-2020 season will be the last in his career, but he has not revealed his destination since the competition was suspended in mid-March due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
I officially lower the curtain on my professional basketball career,” said Carter, 43.
Carter was the first NBA player to appear in four different contracts and signed a one-year contract with Hooks last August.
Hooks did not qualify for the knockout rounds when the championship wheel spins in late July in Disney World, Florida.
Carter played for eight teams during his career, but fans of the game remember his time with the Toronto Raptors, placing the Canadian city on a basketball map and earning the title “Air Canada” because of his prayers and his rounds around the basket.
After his first seasons ended in Toronto, he was named Best Rising Player in 1999. He then participated in the All-Star Game in all the following eight seasons.
In his second season, Carter won the Overwhelming Throwing Competition during the All-Star Week.
Carter is ranked 22nd in the list of the most points-scored players of all time in the NBA with an average of 16.7 points, possession of 4.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists for his teammates per game during a career in which he played in New Jersey, Orlando, Phoenix, Dallas, Memphis, Sacramento and Atlanta.
It also helped the American team win the 2000 Olympic Games gold.
