Carter Makes it Official, Announces Retirement After 22-Year Career

While it was already assumed, on Thursday, the 43-year old Vince Carter called it a career.

Making the announcement public while appearing on The Ringer’s “Winging It With Vince Carter” Podcast, Carter noted that he is “officially done playing basketball professionally” after an incredible 22-year career.

“If there was any disappointment because of the season — any of that — it was kind of easier to put it aside and handle it that way,” Carter said. “It’s like, OK, it’s something bigger than my career. … It’s unfortunate, but with the coronavirus taking people’s lives rapidly, that’s the big picture in my mind.

“So I was able to put the weird ending — the abrupt stoppage of play, to an ending — aside for the bigger picture.”

The Atlanta Hawks will not be participating in the NBA’s 22-team return-to-play format putting an unceremonious end to Carter’s Hall of Fame worthy career. A career that began in Toronto, Carter quickly rose to superstar status while putting Canadian basketball on the map.

An 8-time All-Star, Carter split his career across eight different teams and averaged 16.7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

It has been quite the ride for Half Man, Half Amazing.
