Back in 2005, the Toronto locker room friction between Vince Carter and then coach Sam Mitchell was legendary. It didn’t last long as Carter requested a trade and slumped his way out of town in a way that made Dwight Howard look professional.
Generally, these things are not talked about outside the locker room by the parties involved or the witnesses. But Jalen Rose has been in story telling mode lately, and he told a great version of that story as well.
