Vince Carter Donates $2.5M To Carolina Basketball Family Fund
Quote:
The gift is the largest to date to the Family Fund, which paid for the renovations of the basketball offices in the Smith Center in 2010 and will support the operating endowment for the men's basketball program for years to come.

"My days as a Carolina student, both pre-NBA and during the summers after I was drafted, will always be special to me," Carter says. "It goes without saying that I am a Tar Heel. For several years, I have been thinking about something I could do to leave a legacy at UNC. Lettermen's Lane is a perfect fit."

For all the negativity about Vince Carter he still seems like a nice and quite professional guy. I think injuries hurt his success more then his personality.

Not everyone is a doug gilmour.... playing in toronto often has unrealistic expectations tied to a player of skill and finesse.

It's too bad Vince wasn't tougher, but he got ragged on harder than he should have initially here.

The problem too was that we all expected him to be Jordan 2.0 & when we didn't get it, well um the rest is history...

I liked when he cried at what an honour it was to have a statue of him in front of his old high school even though his mom had it made and donated it to the school.
