Vince Carter says he plans on returning for the 2017-18 season and doesn’t see retirement in his future right now, according to Real GM. At 40 years old, Carter is the oldest active player in the NBA and still provided valuable minutes for the Memphis Grizzlies as a rotation player throughout the year.

I said to myself, I want to play 15 years,’ Carter said. I don’t know where I got that from. And the I got to 15 years and I kept going. I never capped it, but at the same time I’ve had a lot of players remind me of things I’ve said. I’m still saying, Two more years and I’m done.’
In the 48 hours between the two games, much of the talk surrounded LaMarcus Aldridge, as well as the team’s defense on James Harden. In Game 2, both those things improved, particularly the Harden-led defense. (He had just 13 points on 3-of-17 shooting.) Aldridge was better with 15 points, although it took him 14 shots to reach that number. But the biggest improvement, game to game, was San Antonio’s star.

He added seven rebounds, eight assists, a block, and three steals, diversifying his stat line with the added contributions like he often has throughout his career. Leonard is consistently the best two-way player in the league, and he even mixed in a few more possessions guarding Harden one-on-one early in the game, rather than taking on that assignment late in the fourth quarter. It all worked well, and San Antonio still only had to play him 38 minutes.
