Review: Vince Carter: Choose Your Course

full star full star empty star empty star empty star

Vince Carter grew up in Daytona Beach, Florida, competing in soccer, football, tennis, volleyball, track, and basketball. He also played in school bands for seven years. Struggling through his parents' divorce, he developed a positive attitude to carry him forward. In his senior year of high school, Carter earned seventy-six college scholarships for either basketball or music. Choosing to play basketball for the University of North Carolina, he also promised his mother to stay in school. With one college year left, Carter put his name into the 1998 National Basketball Association draft. The Toronto Raptors selected him, and he rose quickly in the NBA ranks.

In 2000, Carter joined the United States Olympic basketball team for competition in Sydney, Australia. Playing with determination, he helped the team win gold. This medal meant more to him than any NBA title. Remembering his promise to his mother, Carter attended summer classes and earned his college degree in African-American studies. To him, all of his NBA wins were less important than finishing school. Carter continues to be an All-Star both on and off the court.
