Vince Carter Expected to Make Suns Debut Tonight

Phoenix will at last get to see what they traded for when Half-Man Half-(fill in the blank) takes the court for his new squad. The AZ Republic reports: “Phoenix Suns coach Alvin Gentry said Tuesday he expects Vince Carter to make his Suns debut Wednesday night when the Philadelphia 76ers visit US Airways Center, providing that the 33-year-old swingman doesn’t experience some sort of a setback after scrimmaging full-court for the first time. ‘Obviously the talent level there is pretty special,’ Gentry said. ‘We’re excited about him. We’ll get him out there and see how long he can go, put him in some situations. I think he’s eventually going to be everything we thought he could be.’ The Suns could use the boost. They have lost three in a row to fall three games below the .500 mark and deep into the second tier of the Western Conference standings.”

    I second Mikee1680′s notion. Plus you know those Phoenix traning facilities can work wonders on those ailing veterens.

    jRich is a better leaper right now compared to vince. I wonder if VC can still catch lobs. i’m hoping vc gets well.

    Phoenix does seem to have the fountain of youth, but this man’s career is over just like his cousin. Both are injury prone. Both were exciting players but they’re done. Not hating just stating facts.

    “I think he’s eventually going to be everything we thought he could be.”

    any of my SLAM friends have any random authographed nba stuff that yal would like to get rid of? there is a hospital not too far from where i live that is full of children who know their days are numbered.. sometimes athletes come to see them but not very often.. but giving them something autographed by a pro (of any sport really) just puts such a huge smile on thier face and delight in thier hearts.. it just makes thier day yal.. so do something special and make yourself a blessing to someone else much less fortunate.. if anyone is interested just leave a comment and il get you my address somehow and deliver to these kids.. thanks

    Will fall down, grimace, stay down, game will stop, helped off court, wince, frown, limp, return to bench, shoot 29% in the playoffs.

    I really hope their amazing training staff can help vince. Look what theyve done with nash, grant, amare and shaq.

    Don’t talk about playoffs! Are you kidding me?
    Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game!

    Most overly-maligned player of my generation, bar none. And possibly, of all-time.

    @tealish: undue criticism? Really? Well, maybe so, but I think there have been more ‘overly-maligned’ players. Iverson for one. At least he brought it when it mattered. I think Kobe takes more undue criticism than VC.

    so much hate…so much.

    I don’t know what the PHX training staff could do for Vince. He’s not injury-prone. He suffers from hypochondria, which only seems to go away when his contract is due for an extension.
