NBA legend Vince Carter has signed a multi-year deal with ESPN as an analyst. The 43-year-old will serve as an NBA and Men’s College Basketball studio and game analyst.
Carter announced his retirement from the NBA on June 25th of this year, after the Hawks failed to qualify for the Orlando bubble.
Carter was an eight-time all-star, Rookie of the Year winner in 1999, and an Olympic Gold Medalist in 2000. He has played for eight teams in his career, more notably for the Toronto Raptors and New Jersey Nets.
However, Carter was most remembered for his legendary dunk contest win in 2000. With the popularity of basketball skyrocketing in Canada since then, many people have credited Carter for the success.
Carter’s career began in 1998, finishing in 2020. VC became the first player in NBA history to play in four different decades. Quite the feat.
Carter remains a fan favorite around the league, and ESPN hopes VC can help with their ratings.
