Back in August, Vince Carter traveled to China and showed his 39-year old legs still act like they are 16-years younger.
On Monday, a die-hard Carter fan from China traveled to Memphis and held up signs during the Hornets/Grizzlies game saying, “I come to the US from China alone. Just for my dream – seeing you Vince. I love you 16 years. I will be back to China tomorrow. Hope to see you VC. I will always love you. Can you take a picture with me?”
After the game, her dream came true as Vince brought her onto the court, shared a few words and smiles, then took a picture with her. I’m sure the experience will make her 14-hour flight back to China a much more pleasant one.
Here’s a few pics from Grizzlies digital reporter, Alexis Morgan, of the fan.
