Vince Carter plans on continuing his career next season. Carter has had remarkable longevity, evolving into one of the game's better veteran wing role players.
Carter will be a free agent this summer.
"I said to myself 'I want to play 15 years'. I don't know where I got that from. And the 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," said Carter about how he kept telling fellow players he would retire after two more years.
"I'm still saying 'two more years and I'm done.'
"I sit here today and I think of when I was younger, at that 25 and the season was over, I felt awful.
"I could play three more rounds of basketball right now."
