Vince Carter and Michael Jordan

For ordinary spectator, the fact of the departure of the famous Jordan from the world stage did not fit in his head, because this athlete was a famous showman, no match of his did without a spectacular trick.

According to Carter himself, this comparison is inappropriate, because he does not try to “crush” the rival, to show his superiority, unlike the famous successor.
