Vinsanity will be entering another decade.

Vince Carter has officially announced that he will return for a 22nd NBA season in 2019/20.

“Yeah, I’m coming back” said Carter during his recent podcast with Kent Bazemore and Annie Finberg on the Ringer Podcast Network.

The significance of that? Well he will break the NBA record for most seasons played, and become the first player to have played in four different decades.

Carter began his career with the Toronto Raptors during the 1998/99 season, and has averaged 17.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists split between eight different teams in 1466 combined regular season games through his illustrious career.

He excelled this past season with the Atlanta Hawks, averaging his highest point total since 2013/14. He also became the oldest player in NBA history to record at least 20 points in a game after sinking seven three-pointers for 21 points in the team’s 114-113 loss to the Miami Heat on March 4.

Chris Paul shuts down rumours regarding his ‘unsalvageable’ relationship with James Harden

Published

Chris Paul has decided to fight back against recent rumours suggesting he is unhappy with being on the Houston Rockets and playing alongside James Harden.

Damn! That’s news to me…” Paul replied on a Bleacher Report Instagram post outlining the alleged feud between the Rockets’ two stars accompanied by a photo of them walking together down a hallway.

Paul and Harden were seen having a heated argument after the Rockets were eliminated once again to the Golden State Warriors this postseason in six games of the Western Conference semifinals.

Even if the rumours were true, it would be very tough for the Rockets to move Paul via trade.

He is 34-years old, often injured, and still owed approximately $125 million with three years left in his contract.

We will see how this unfolds with the NBA Draft and free agency period rapidly approaching.

Al Horford’s time with the Celtics appears to be coming to an end

The Boston Celtics are having the worst offseason in the NBA, and free agency hasn’t even kicked off yet.

In the midst of all the reports suggesting Kyrie Irving is ready to join the Brooklyn Nets, it appears All-Star center Al Horford is ready to leave town as well.

According to reports, Al Horford – who recently declined his $30 million option for 2019/202 – is expected to sign elsewhere this offseason because the Celtics are only willing to offer a three-year extension while other teams are prepared to dish out a four-year contract with more guaranteed money.

The 33-year old, who initially signed a multiyear deal with the Celtics on July 1, 2016, has averaged 13.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 4.6 assists over a span of three seasons and 208 games with the franchise.
