If he did,he would've pulled the plug on the Nets heist for Vince Carter like he did with the Lakers and Chris Paul.
( when he and his boys owned the Hornets).
The way that some talk about Vince on here, what we got for him doesn't seem like we were involved in any heist. Yeah, the wise ones realize he was top 5 at one point, but he never got back to that point either. Back in the day here, he was busting triple teams while Mo Pete was snacking on twinkies waiting for an open three. Boom, roasted.
