40-Year-Old Vince Carter Says He Plans To Play 2 More Seasons Before Retiring
Half-man, Half amazing has no plans on retiring.
After being bounced out in the first round by the San Antonio Spurs, 40-year-old swingman Vince Carter revealed that he has no plans to retire, and aims to play another two seasons before ending his career for good.
“I said to myself ‘I want to play 15 years.’ I don’t know where I got that from. And then I got to 15 years and I kept going. I never capped it, but at the same time I’ve had a lot of players remind me of things I’ve said. I’m still saying ‘two more years and I’m done,'” Carter said, according to RealGM.com.
Carter has yet to get that Championship ring and has no plans to leach onto a contender to do so, because he’s comfortable where he’s at.
“I hear people say all the time, ‘Go chase the ring.’ That word ‘chase’ is tough for me,” Carter told Geoff Calkins of The Memphis Commercial Appeal. “I’m comfortable here, my family is comfortable here, we’re building something exciting and great and I enjoy going to work with these guys every day.”
Vince averaged eight points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists on 39.4 percent shooting for Memphis this past season.
