Eight-time All-Star Vince Carter is set to turn 42 later this month. Despite this, the future Hall of Famer is still playing a high level for the Atlanta Hawks. Carter is averaging 7.3 points on a robust 37 percent shooting from distance.
While Carter himself is still unsure about retirement, he continues to get the tribute treatment when facing his former teams. This included a tribute in Toronto earlier in the week.
That did not change Wednesday evening with Carter’s Hawks taking on his former Nets team in Brooklyn.
Here, we see the Nets pay tribute to a guy who dominated for the then-New Jersey Nets for five seasons earlier in his career.

Carter averaged 23.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists during his five seasons with the Nets — leading the team to three playoff appearances in the process. He’s still considered one of the greatest players in franchise history.
The funny thing here is that Carter has not announced his retirement. He could very well return to Brooklyn next season. Will the team then give him another tribute? Only time will tell on that front. But the ageless wonder continues to do his thing. It really is remarkable.
