In a story that should surprise no one, Vince Carter has been a complete disappointment since arriving in Orlando this offseason. Carter arrived from New Jersey in a June trade that sent Courtney Lee, Rafer Alston and Tony Battie out of Orlando and brought in Carter and Ryan Anderson.
The addition of Carter was expected to offset the loss of Hedo Turkoglu to free agency. It hasn’t exactly worked out that way.
So far the 32-year-old Carter is posting career
lows in scoring (16.5 ppg), field goal percentage (38.4) and rebounds
(4.4 rpg). He’s also shooting just 30.4 percent from behind the 3-point
line, while hiscareer average is 37.4 percent.
but we told you so.
That goes out to all the fans, reporters, columnists and basketball experts who thought Vince Carter would improve the Orlando Magic.
