Vince Carter gives Orlando a veteran, go-to scoring presence, especially at the end of games. Our goal remains the same -- to win a championship. Any time you can add an All-Star to help you reach your goals, you have to do it. Vince has been a consistent scorer in this league for 11 seasons.
Vince Carter is 32, but he still seems to have things left. He can still perform amazing windmill dunks. Vince Carter gives the Magic a perimeter scorer that can create his own shot, which is something they lacked against LA in the Finals. They just had no answer for Kobe Bryant. So Vince definetely will help. I mean Orlando's main tactic is to let Howard post so opposing people will double to prevent easy shots. Then Howard will pass out of the Double, and the Perimeter Player swing the ball around, till they find a open 3 point shooter. Vince Carter can Shoot 3s, and he can drive and finish too. So overall it poses more threat.
But the downside is they gave up Rafer Alston and COurtney Lee. Rafter played well in the Finals, excellent backup point guard after Jameer Nelson, and Courtney is simiply an impressive rookie, aside from that missed shot in Game 2. Courtney Lee has the potential to develop more, probably a good player.
The loss of those 2 players, and if they can't resign Turkologu, will hurt. But this offseason is just getting started!
I was shocked and excited to see Vince here too!
