The legend that is Vince Carter is not ready to call it a career just yet.

In a Thursday appearance on ESPN’s “Pardon The Interruption,” the veteran forward expressed his interest to return for a 22nd NBA season.

“I think I could stretch it out one more,” Carter said. “At the end of the year, I usually assess from top to bottom to see how I’m feeling. And obviously, opportunity, when the phone call rings and teams show interest, that’s a good thing.

“Me personally, I think I could give it another year, so why not? We’ll see what happens.”

The 42-year-old is averaging 7.1 points per game while shooting an astounding 40.9 percent from downtown as a member of the Atlanta Hawks.

The fifth overall in the 1998 NBA Draft recently passed Reggie Miller for 20th on the NBA’s all-time scoring list and became the oldest player in league history to hit seven 3-pointers in a single game.

Carter is one of those players where every fan base loves him no matter where he’s playing.
