Vince Carter’s Distraction-Free Homecoming

At last, the Florida native gets to play at home, in front of friends and family. Those guys and gals are on their own when it comes to tickets, though: “So when Carter’s friends and family wanted tickets to Magic games, he politely declined. He wants his focus on gamedays in just one place. ‘I just wanted to focus on the season,’ Carter said. ‘I wanted to approach this as every other season. I didn’t have to worry about ticket requests in Toronto or Jersey. A lot of my friends, all of my friends are pretty much here, I just wanted to keep it simple.’ Carter said some people were upset, but ultimately understood. He didn’t even get tickets for his mother.”

    I agree with him not getting tickets for everybody as an on-demand type system. If I were in his position of playing in my hometown, I’d probably buy 2-4 season tickets for my mom though. My close friends would have to talk to her if they wanted to use them for a game. Outside of that, I’d take VC’s approach of not getting involved with the ticket quest.

    I don’t believe that quote about his mom for one sec. What’s shocking to me is that his mom would even need him to hustle for tickets. Can’t she just… walk in and chill wherever like the front office people do?
