Charles Barkley had some high praise for Vince Carter after the Grizzlies were eliminated by the Spurs on Thursday night. The 40-year old guard played exceptionally well, scoring 10 of his 12 points in the first half, throwing down rebound dunks and played some impressive defense on Kawhi Leonard in the second half. And after playing 33 minutes in tough Game 5, the 19-year veteran showed why he’s been able to keep his nickname of ‘Half-Man, Half-Amazing.’
Speaking of Vince Carter, season just ended but he's in weightroom working out next door to press conference room. Music thumping thru door.
