Dwight Howard pokes fun at former teammate Carter

Vince Carter Planking

If you’re not familiar with “planking,” it refers to lying face-down on something and having somebody take a picture of you while doing it. It has become a popular meme lately, even among NBA players such as Gilbert Arenas and Dwight Howard.

Today, Howard used the “planking” meme to take a jab at former teammate Vince Carter, posting the above picture on his twitter with the caption “Vince carte [sic] planking lol.”

Carter has a reputation for being injury-prone, although he has appeared in at least 70 games in every season since the 04-05 campaign. The Magic traded for Carter to essentially replace Hedo Turkoglu after they made the NBA Finals in 2009, but traded him to the Phoenix Suns and re-acquired Turkoglu last season. Carter averaged 15.1 points per game with the Magic and 13.5 points per game with the Suns last season, which were both career-lows.

    This is great….

    The economy’s about to go down for the count again this summer, and here are guys with hundred million dollar contracts doing this.

    Look, this may be appealing to 5 to 10 year old fans, but people that are trying to survive and worse yet, feed a family, have to wonder why hey need to drop 3 figures to see a meaningless regular season NBA game.

    Don’t these people have any adult responsibilities? Of course not – they walk away from them. What do they call the unwed mothers again – the “baby mama’s”?

      Where does “baby mama’s” fit into this????? You do not have to drop six figures to see them and they are not twisting anyone’s arm to watch them.

      Did anybody else laugh at “drop 3 figures”?

      Quit crying. Are prices high? Yes. Are you being forced to go to the game and spend that money? No. And if you think their meaningless games first off why do you want to go? Second I’d assume your a fan who doesn’t follow sports til the playoffs hence why you consider them meaningless games.

        You can get season tickets for under 1k. Season tickets!

      Says the guy reading a sports news site…. This entire business is centered and formed around a game. Why would they take what they do seriously??? And what do NBA players and the economy have to do with one another???

      oohhhhh and PS… No player makes hundreds of millions under contract.

      PSS… you don’t have to drop 3 figures to see a game.. you can watch it for free or pay for cheaper seats.

    “Carter has a reputation for being injury-prone, although he has appeared in at least 70 games in every season since the 04-05 campaign”

    Once again, reality > perception.

    Kind of hard to identify which lebron hater it is since theres millions and millions of them including me, anyone else got any
    More justifications or excuses on why he
    Dissapeared in the finals.
