Vince Carter’s Distraction-Free Homecoming

by October 28, 2009

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.”
