Well I already miss Vince Carter. It's no surprise that he's going from being an NBA legend to someone who is already fantastic on television. It's why he has whatever type of broadcasting role he wants waiting for him. While this wasn't the Ernie/JET/Chuck group, it still had Shaq and Wade and any time you put Shaq on TV I'm watching. I didn't know that Wade's famous pull up that he did pregame was inspired by Vince Carter. Then again who wasn't inspired by Vince Carter. The man is a living legend.
Then we had Shaq looking baked as hell telling stories which obviously never disappoints. That's a man that looks like he's been enjoying his quarantine and looks like the rest of us. Forget all these NBA players looking like they are in the best shape ever. That's not relatable. Shaq in this video? That's you. That's me. That's everyone who has done nothing but snack this entire quarantine.
If I have one wish, it's that we get way more moments like this with Vince Carter. I don't care if its videos, podcasts, whatever. Doesn't matter to me. Now that he has the time this is what the people need. Give me stories that I've never heard before or background around some of his most famous moments.
It feels weird that we now live in a world where Vince Carter isn't in the NBA considering he's been a player for like 66% of my life. Fortunately for us though I don't think he's going anywhere, and it's only a matter of time before he becomes a media GOAT as well.
Now, as always, cue the highlights
