Vince Carter

Vince Carter is the NBA’s oldest active player at 42 years. Carter will be most remembered for his days with the Toronto Raptors, where he helped transform the Canadian city into a basketball fan base and shocked the world with his crazy dunks. After his first season in Toronto, Carter was named the rookie of the year and impressively named an All-Star for each of the following 10 years, averaging 24.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game during that span. In 2000, he won the Slam Dunk Contest, further increasing his stardom.

During the height of his career, Carter was nearly unstoppable regardless of where he played. He originally started his career with the Toronto Raptors and eventually moved on to the New Jersey Nets managing to become an NBA All-Star eight times. He’s also a relatively good defender and usually could secure a steal or two per game.
