Vince Carter: My Play Is Terrible Right Now

The answer came instantaneously, as if Vince Carter wanted to get it out in the open — like an official decree, just to confirm that he knows what the masses are thinking.

How are you playing? he was asked.

"Terrible," he spat.


He also knows that if the Nets are going to make a legitimate run at eighth place in the East, he had better get his groove back — pronto.

"I don’t feel like my game is where it should be at this point in the season," said Carter, coming off a 10-point, five-turnover performance in Monday’s exhilarating victory over Philadelphia.
