Throughout the 2018-19 NBA season, plenty of headlines have arrived involving the elder statesmen of the league. They include Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade. Both are multiple-time All-Stars, NBA champions, and set to ride off into retirement once this season ends. Meanwhile, another elder player in the league will play at least one more season. The NBA 2K19 MyTeam mode is now boasting Vince Carter Signature Series packs in honor of “Half-Man, Half-Amazing.”
NBA 2K19 MyTeam: Vince Carter Signature Series packs
On Thursday, NBA 2K19 MyTeam teased the new Vince Carter Signature Series packs on their Twitter with a promotional hype video. It showed off the virtual VC in action on the court, throwing down vicious dunks. It goes back to Carter’s heyday when he was a daily fixture on the ESPN “SportsCenter” highlights. He can still get some air these days, but as his career continues to wind down, it’s best to honor his younger self on the NBA 2K courts. They did the same with Dwyane Wade Signature Series, to honor the legend.
