Vince Carter

  1. Retirement is not on Vince Carter’s mind

    Oct 4, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Vince Carter

    Midway through this coming NBA season (Jan. 26, to be exact) Vince Carter will turn 37. That’s a grandpa in NBA years. The guys once known for his explosiveness has found his groove as a veteran role player off the bench in Dallas. They needed a scorer, an instant-offense guy off the bench and that…

  2. Amir Johnson really, really, really loves Toronto

    Oct 4, 2013, 10:25 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Understandably, Raptors fans are a little fearful of being jilted again. Chris Bosh, Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady all left Toronto via free agency or by forcing a trade. When the team’s top players – probably uncoincidentally Americans – all flee for the states, that’s no longer just a coincidence. And it doesn’t sit well…

  3. Mavericks plan to play Nowitzki, Carter about the same minutes as last season

    Sep 30, 2013, 5:19 PM EDT

    Vince Carter

    Last season Vince Carter played just less than 26 minutes per game for Dallas, the season before almost the same. For a player who will turn 37 this season is that too many? And what should Dallas do with Dirk Nowitzki who played more than 31 minutes a game last season and will be age…

  4. Harrison Barnes hopes to participate in this year’s dunk contest

    Sep 28, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes had more than his fair share of amazing slam dunk highlights during his rookie season with the Warriors — just check out the clip above, or this collection of the team’s best plays from last year for visual confirmation. It’s rare that we get the best in-game dunkers wanting to participate in All-Star…

  5. Tracy McGrady, reflecting on his career, says he wishes he would have stayed in Toronto

    Tracy McGrady‘s NBA career didn’t really begin to blow up until after his third season, but most who observed his game closely knew it was coming. That was unfortunate for the Toronto Raptors, the team that drafted McGrady with the ninth overall pick in 1997, but who would lose him to Orlando in free agency…

  6. Kobe Bryant receives most votes from rookies asked to name their favorite player in the league

    Each year when the NBA’s freshly drafted rookies gather for the offseason photo-shoot during the summer, NBA.com surveys the group to get their thoughts on the league’s current players, as well as predictions for the future of this year’s incoming class. While several topics were covered, one of the more interesting questions posed to the…

    Tracy McGrady, one of the best and most versatile scorers of his generation, has decided to hang up his NBA sneakers. McGrady made the announcement on ESPN’s First Take. McGrady, 34, started last season playing in China then upon his return was picked up by the San Antonio Spurs and was a little-used reserve on…

  8. DeJuan Blair, Mavericks enforcer? It’s what Carlisle wants

    Aug 21, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair

    Rick Carlisle wants the Dallas Mavericks to be tougher this season. The man for the job is… DeJuan Blair? Coach Rick Carlisle says so, speaking at Blair’s introductory press conference, as reported by ESPNDallas.com. “DeJuan was a really important acquisition for us because Elton Brand didn’t return,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. “We need that…

  9. Kobe said he was leaning North Carolina over Duke for college

    Aug 16, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    It has long been assumed that if Kobe Bryant had not opted for the NBA and instead headed to college — remember he went pro long before the ridiculous one-and-done rule — that he was headed to Duke. To this day Bryant has a great relationship with and respect for Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski.…

  10. Report: Mavericks reach agreement with Samuel Dalembert

    Jul 17, 2013, 8:53 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Dallas Mavericks have some shooters on the roster — Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Vince Carter. They got Jose Calderon to set those guys up. What they didn’t have was a real defender in the paint — but they have solved that problem. Or at least tried to solve it. The Mavericks have reached a…

  11. Mavericks meet with Andrew Bynum; how much of his contract is guaranteed could determine where he signs

    Jul 10, 2013, 7:27 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    UPDATE 8:24 p.m.: Things happen quickly around these parts — Andrew Bynum has agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers. 7:27 p.m.: When it was reported that the Cavaliers had offered Andrew Bynum a two-year deal worth $24 million, we knew that the contract would be incentive-based due to the injuries that prevented the big…

  12. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  13. Mavericks want to make Dirk Nowitzki their second-best player

    Apr 21, 2013, 11:32 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Ryan Anderson

    For the first time since the 1999-00 season, when Michael Finley did it, Dirk Nowitzki didn’t lead the Mavericks in win shares. As Nowitzki missed a large of the 2012-13 season due to injury, Vince Carter, Darren Collison and Shawn Marion passed him in the all-in-one stat. If the Mavericks have their way, Nowitzki won’t…

  14. Dirk Nowitzki hits game-winning three-pointer to bury the Bulls (VIDEO)

    Mar 30, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    We talked about the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West between the Jazz and the Lakers earlier today, but the Mavericks are likely to be in the conversation through the end of the regular season, as well. Dallas has finally gotten Dirk Nowitzki back healthy, and has now won 11…

  15. Three Stars of the night: CP3, Dirk trade shots in Dallas

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Best game of the night was in Dallas, and we’ve got two from that game. Plus the hot hand that did in Boston. Third Star: Chris Paul (33 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists) For much of the game Dallas took the strategy of making Chris Paul the scorer for the Clippers. This is the same…

  16. Mavericks beat Clippers, move close to playoffs… and a shave

    Mar 27, 2013, 3:01 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Matt Barnes

    One more win and the Dallas Mavericks will reach .500 — and they can shave their beards. You remember, the ones they were going to grow until they got their record even, a process that has taken so long the team starting to look like a young ZZ Top? It’s almost time for razors soon, they…

  17. DeMarcus Cousins had angry words for Kings announcer

    Mar 20, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins needs to develop a thicker skin. Soon. The Kings picked up one of their better wins of the year Tuesday, dominating the fourth quarter to knock off the Clippers. In a season filled with losses on the court and bigger concerns off it, this was the kind of game the Kings and their…

  18. Throwback performance from Tim Duncan leads Spurs to win over Mavericks

    Mar 14, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    It wasn’t necessarily a surprise that a Spurs team with the best record in the Western Conference would bounce back from an embarrassing, blowout loss to one of the league’s bottom-feeders that they suffered in Minnesota on Tuesday. The performance from Tim Duncan that led them there, however, was definitely a bit unexpected. Duncan was…

  19. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Celtics’ off night makes Bobcats look good

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while checking out what porn stars look like without makeup… Heat 98, Hawks 81: If Tuesday night was any indication, the Hawks should want to win enough games from here on out to avoid slipping to the eighth seed and getting the Heat…

  20. NBA Power Rankings: After the Heat it gets interesting

    Mar 11, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers guard Stephenson is guarded by Heat forward Andersen and Battier during their NBA game at the American Airlines Arena in Miami

    Going to be an interesting week out West — Thunder and Spurs on Monday, while the Grizzlies play the Clippers and Nuggets this week. Those games don’t foreshadow playoff outcomes as much as hint at seedings — if Denver can get home court in the first round whoever has to face them is in trouble.…

  21. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Miami wants to know if you have any other challengers

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering where you’re going to get your next lion meat burger if not Chicago…. Lakers 90, Bulls 81: The Lakers offense has been better of late and the Bulls offense continues to be unimpressive. At best. Those things combine to give the…

  22. Report: Celtics were closer than you think to trading Paul Pierce

    Mar 8, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The idea of Paul Pierce in an Dallas Mavericks uniform just seems… wrong. Yet apparently it was closer to happening than we knew. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was listening to offers and talking about maybe blowing up Boston and restarting, but the conventional wisdom was he wouldn’t go through with it. But he almost did,…

  23. Vince Carter moves up all-time scoring list, then hits game winner (VIDEO)

    Feb 23, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    Vince Carter

    Vince Carter — idol to much of a younger generation — is still making plays. Like finding a way to score near the rim, get the and-one, and with it pass Gary Payton to move into 28th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. With Carter it’s a combination of a guy who could always score…

  24. Hakim Warrick to Orlando headlines small trades at deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Hakim Warrick, Jason Thompson

    We didn’t get any blockbuster trades at this year’s NBA trading deadline. We saw Rudy Gay moved a few weeks before and J.J. Redick did get moved just before the deadline. But a lot of what happened at the deadline was smaller deals that slid under the radar. Here is a quick wrap-up of those…

  25. Three best dunks of All-Star Dunk Contest

    Feb 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    This isn’t a dunk contest that is going to go down in history with the greats. Well, unless you’re a Raptors fan. It was up and down, plenty of misfires and missed dunks no doubt. But there were some jaw dropping moments, too. Terrence Ross won because he had a few of them. Then there…
