After losing a big first quarter lead and falling to his former team at the Air Canada Centre, ex-Raptors superstar Vince Carter talked about the game, the changing reaction from the ACC crowd and his impact on the young up and coming Canadians that are in the NBA or about to arrive.
About the crowd at the ACC:
Vince Carter, “It is a great feeling that (there were) cheers and people appreciate – you know – what I’ve done here. It’s a work in progress.”
About the Canadians in the NBA:
Vince Carter, “It’s a great feeling. For someone to kind of say – ‘you were my hero growing up’ and now you are playing against them – that makes me old. That’s just like I’m a Dr. J fan and I couldn’t imagine growing up idolizing Dr. J and playing against Dr. J, so – I did play against Mike Jordan and I had a very strong appreciation for him, but Dr. J was number 1 in my heart and there’s Michael Jordan and I am playing against him, so well dang – I am very appreciative for it and glad I am still around to play against some of these guys that are now NBA players and future NBA superstars.”
