Another great story with Jalen Rose complimented with some cool animation by the Grantland folks.
This story takes place when Jalen was with the Raptors but before Kobe scored 81 on them. When Vinsanity was no longer a good thing in Toronto and Vince Carter was racking up more injuries than Sportscenter play of the days. I’ll let Jalen tell the story but saying “Vince wouldn’t bust a grape in a food fight” was a little rough. You know Vince is sensitive right and he wasn’t afraid of Shane Heal….who is 6 feet tall!
