Vince Carter didn't waste any time leaving his mark on the NBA landscape. Shocking veteran opponents with his dazzling combination of speed and power, Carter quickly became the player to watch and was named the Rookie of the Year for the 1999 season.
In 2000 Carter emerged as the undisputed leader of the young and talented Toronto Raptors. His spectacular moves and acrobatic dunks have won him legions of young fans and made him a fixture on highlight reels across North America. The Raptors and their young superstar are filling arenas wherever they play.
Carter has also been named a Goodwill Ambassador by the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America and has founded The Embassy of Hope foundation to support children's charities.
In this lavishly illustrated book, basketball columnist Bill Harris examines Carter's career from a member of the high school band to the
University of North Carolina and on to NBA superstardom. A must for any true basketball fan.
