Canadian basketball team, Toronto Raptors will forever remain indebted to Vince Carter as the player who helped establish them as one of the strongest teams in NBA. He is best known for his crazy dunks that led Raptors to win several accolades.
However, the basketball star recently announced his retirement in June 2019, with the 2019-2020 being his last seasons. This puts him as one of the few players in the NBA history to ever play for a solid 22 seasons.
