Official: Vince Carter will retire after completing the next course

The 42-year-old forward (will turn 43 in January) will link his 22nd season in the NBA: nobody has played so much in the North American League.


Every beginning has an end ... although some are delayed an awful lot. Vince Carter announced in The Jumps that next season will be the last of his career. The 42-year-old forward (will turn 43 in January) will add 22 campaigns in the NBA in this way, a figure that nobody in history has achieved. Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, Kevin Willis and Robert Parish left basketball after 21 years.

Carter began his career at age 22 at the Toronto Raptors. In the Canadian franchise he won the Rookie of the Year award and there he was for six and a half seasons. After the North came the New Jersey Nets (today Brooklyn), Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks. In the team of Georgia will say goodbye one of the best killers ever: won the contest mattes in the All Star of 2000 and left for the memory the mate on Frederic Weis at the Olympic Games in Sydney 2000.
