Um Yes. Don’t let the career scoring average of 16 ppg fool you. That doesn’t tell the whole story. The longevity and accepting a lesser role hurt his numbers.

Through 16 seasons (all star years and big time sixth man):
38% 3PT
44% FG
80% FT

- saved basketball in Canada
- inspired a new generation of basketball in Canada
- 4x leading all star vote getter (during era of Kobe, shaq, iverson, Tmac, wizards jordan)
- 8x all star
- top 10 3PT shooter
- 00 Olympic gold medalist
- 99 rookie of the year
- 2x all Nba
- one of five players in NBA history to score more than 25,000 points, grab more than 5,000 rebounds, dish out more than 4,000 assists and make more than 500 made 3-pointers.

The other four are:
Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Paul Pierce and LeBron James.

How this is an actual question is beyond me. He's easily a HOFer
Vince Carter is absolutely a Hall of Famer. 100%
Why TF is this even a question. OF COURSE HE IS!
There had been players not as good as Vince that made it in the Hall of fame. This question is ridiculous.

Vince Carter is an icon. I don’t want to hear someone’s case for saying that K.C. Jones is more dominant, better, or more iconic than Vince Carter.

The most played seasons by any player ever. The 2000 dunk contest was the Vince carter show. Apart of team USA where he pretty much scored the most amazing and universally acclaimed dunk of all time. Go watch it rn. I mean just being the greatest dunker alone should be enough for him. He was looked as the next MJ for awhile in the early 2000s. He was the first opposing player I rooted for just because I knew he was gonna bring unparalleled excitement to the game. Excitement, something this post covid world is seriously lacking rn. I wish the man wasn't robbed of his chance to play out the rest of this season. But it isn't his nor anyone's fault. Glad to see the man still has his health and ability at his age. Thank You, for everything Vince. 🙏🏻

Better to have a show called Around Uranus - where they pick up some "Kling-ons" like Vince Carter who should have retired 10 years ago instead of "Klinging On."
