Vinsanity was the insane highlight machine that was Vince Carter. Insanity is the thought that during those days Raps GM Glen Grunwald rejected a trade that would’ve sent Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash to Toronto for Vince Carter and Antonio Davis.
Don’t be too hard on Glen because during those days, Vince Carter was one of the most marketable athletes in sports and Dirk & Nash were just underrated future MVPs…but damn! The thought that they could have had not only two future Hall of Famers, but two of the best to ever play their positions.
Kind of interesting that Vince would end up playing with Nash in Phoenix and Dirk in Dallas.
