They say father time is undefeated but active future Hall of Famers Vince Carter and Dwyane Wade would beg to differ. What these two legends are doing is remarkable – Wade looks like he could have another five successful seasons in the league. Carter has recreated himself as a perfect role player for a young determined team.
Vince Carter climbed up the NBA’s all-time scoring list Monday during the Hawks game against the Heat.
The eight-time All-Star is now 20th in scoring after netting 12 points in the first half, which moved him past Reggie Miller (25,279) in career points.
Carter now trails Carmelo Anthony (25,551), Alex English (25,613) and Kevin Garnett (26,071), among others.
Just last week, they both turned heads with their play as they have done so many times, except this time it’s at the age of 37 and 42, respectfully.
Wade sent the defending two-time NBA champion Golden State Warriors home with a loss, knocking an awesome buzzer beater to give his Miami Heat the win.
Three nights later Carter played 45 (!) minutes in the Atlanta Hawks quadruple overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls.
