Found February 01, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
This is some wily old veteran type junk right here. Long ago are the days of Vince Carter just getting the ball and dunking over people. Though the Dallas Mavericks guard/forward can still get above the rim, he cannot do it without a little use of the old noggin these days. Checkout what Carter did on Thursday night against the Warriors when he faked an injury in the corner to get the defense to ease up on him, then he make a cut to the rim to take a pass from Elton Brand. That’s something you would expect from someone on the playground, not on an NBA court. For what it is worth, later in the game, the Warriors showed you why Carter needs to make plays like this I like how Draymond Green does the primal scream for Carl Landry after the block. Golden State ended up with the last laugh, winning 100-97. H/T @cjzero
