Vincent Lamar "Vince" Carter is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Memphis Grizzlies of the National Basketball Association.

He is 6'6" and can play both shooting guard and small forward.

A high school McDonald's All-American, Carter played three years at the University of North Carolina.

While there, he twice reached the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament before being selected as the fifth overall pick in the 1998 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors, who traded him to the Toronto Raptors.

He won the 1999 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and won the Slam Dunk Contest at the 2000 NBA All-Star Weekend.

That summer, he represented the United States in the Summer Olympics, winning a gold medal.

He quickly emerged as a league star, entertaining crowds with his leaping ability and slam dunks, earning him nicknames such as "Vinsanity," "Air Canada," and "Half-Man, Half-Amazing." He led the Raptors to their first three playoff appearances.

In 2004, he was traded to the New Jersey Nets, and he helped lead them to three playoff berths.
