This Is The Toughest Vince Carter You Will Ever See (Video)

carter vs. ibakaLadies and gentlemen, you can mark December 29, 2011 down as the day that Vince Carter showed some toughness on the court of the first time ever.

The NBA journeyman who had been criticized many times for his lack of toughness and effort, was showing some toughness when he and Serge Ibaka engaged in a heated altercation during last night’s game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Dallas Mavericks.  It’s just too bad that Carter’s act of toughness came with half-a-dozen players and officials standing between him and the Thunder’s power forward.

Carter would also hit a late three-pointer with 1.4 seconds remaining to put the Mavs up by one.  But he would eventually be outdone by Kevin Durant. whose buzzer-beating three-pointer would give the Thunder the 104-102 victory.

Here is a look at Carter and Ibaka’s altercation, as well as the wild ending to last night’s game at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
