So nothing the Nets have done this offseason has surprised Carter. Not the addition of eight new teammates or the loss of old ones, including Richard Jefferson, who was traded to the Bucks on the afternoon of the draft in June.

"That's just the business of basketball," Carter said Wednesday. "Sometimes you can't do anything about it. You just have to accept it and move on."
Since when Carter is quietly accepting to be in a rebuilding team?

Odds are he quits on his teammates half way through; asks for a trade and continues on in his mediocre career.

When they are 6-14 after 20 games this season he'll want out or go down with an injury!

Merry Christmas NJ, and good luck.

You know, I thought the same thing when I read this earlier today.

Then I thought...screw the bastard. And I moved on.

This will probably be one of the most unpopular quotes in this sites history.

I still have a small soft spot for VC, he brought alot of excitement and basically put the Raptors on the map in a huge way yet to be duplicated. He is what he is at the end of the day and i can respect him, he was never rude to fans here in words, he just isnt made to be a highly competitive pro athlete, but he was given the wrong body of a potential basketball great.

GL to you Vince.

And god, the VC hate never stops around here does it... that's a harmless comment if I ever saw one. We rag on the guy for saying some decent now too?

I can agree with this as an assessment of his basketball career. But what will always haunt him, will be the way he left this city. Saying things like: "Dunking is overrated" really says a big fuck you to his fan base who for large part argued he was the best dunker of all time (and this was mostly Toronto fans who argued this on his behalf). Plus, by him half assing it out there on more than one occassion is really telling the team and fans off because really his focus shifted to himself.

VC deserves credit for what he did and if we could ignore (2003 was it? ...can't remember) then I'd say we should honour him. But the way he went out, I just can't forgive him unless he manned up.

VC knows his career is on the decline and that he has about zero pull in the NBA and in NJ anymore. so he cant really say anything, nor can he complain.
he's lost all his 'power' and isnt the superstar he once was. he cant say shit anymore.

Why are we still hung up on this guy? Him being traded away was the best thing for this organization.

I'm guessing that it's because when things went bad here after three straight playoff appearances, he wanted out.He's a douche.

That's what I was wondering.

Pretty simple quote...basically any player would say the same thing.

I think we'd find a way to spin Vince saying "I like puppies" into an indictment of his character if we had to.
