28/6/4/1.5/1.1 on 46/41/77
25/5/4/1.4/0.6 on 45/41/80

It depends on whether or not he steals Jordan's game as well like kobe. If not, he would prb only get a little bit better. He isn't all of a sudden going to become a top ten player.

That would make him, hands down, the greatest dunker of all time, by miles.

This guy had serious potential. If you think about it there's not one weakness that Vince Carter had besides being a pvssy with no heart. Vince Carter with Kobe's worth ethic has at worst top 20 potential

Work ethic is overrated. It's more competitiveness what really drives you.

Who had less work ethic... Vince or T-Mac?

It's a close call, but I think Vince cared even less than his cousin. T-Mac at least vocally expressed a strong desire to win that almost convinced you he was working hard.

Work ethic, preperation has a lot to do with it. A LOT.

Work ethic isn't just working out and getting your shot perfect. It's about watching games and preparing yourself to give your team the best shot at winning.

Competitiveness is that extra drive that pushes you into greatness.

He could have been the best ever, he could shoot from anywhere and drive, if he had a motor and willingness to work he could have been a legend.

I don't think Carter's work-ethic was the problem, it more like his attitude. He plays when he wants to play.

I never heard anywhere that Vince didn't work hard and would **** off. I just know that he quit on his team and did a bunch of terrible things for the Toronto Raptors when he wanted to leave.

Carter cared less but he also worked harder. Kind of strange right? Tmac wanted to win but he didn't want to work/earn it.

Carter was already a great player and the extra push was all he needs.
