Vince Carter's effect on the rise of Canadian basketball talent


The biggest impact on the Toronto kids wasn't Canadian Steve Nash. Instead it was the best and most dynamic player in Raptors history. "Vince Carter was unbelievable, he was definitely everyone's favorite," Nik Stauskas said. Carter arrived from UNC for the strike-shortened 1999 season and was named NBA Rookie of the Year. His high-flying style was the perfect presence to draw in fans. (Yahoo! Sports)
