Only a Nets fan could say Vince Carter.

T-Mac was being compared to Kobe.

Also, T-Mac and Kobe were the 2 best players to use in NBA2K! haha

Vince was the better athlete and dunker, but T-Mac was easily the better overall player.

Vince was great in 2000 and '01 though.

but he didnt win anything... not even a playoff round... ur argument is foolish... you'll be the same n*gga 6 years from now saying lebron is better than kobe cuz he has 0 to 2 rings... meanwhile kobe has 5 or 6...
Robert Horry won 7 rings is he better than Lebron....NO
T-Mac was easily better than VC, VC made the second round in 01 then after he was in T-Mac's shoes. T-Mac was on the same level as Kobe but injuries messed that up. Vince was barely top 5 in his own position. Vince was never on T-Mac's level.

I think people use team achievements as a barometer to measure a player success to often. Vince Carter was one of my favorite players, but he wasn't fu*king with T-mac. His overall career was better then T-Mac's, but prime for prime it wasn't close.

meanwhile we're not talking about role players so... nice try..!! VINCE was a WINNER... if tmac didnt score 30+ he was guaranteed to lose... and even if he did score 30 40 50 he still loss occasionally... WHILE BEING THE MAN ON HIS TEAM NOT A ROLE PLAYER
this n*gga is stupid

Vince dropped 50 in the playoffs ...what has T-Mac done in the playoffs? sh*t.

T-Mac 52 against the Nuggets and lost, what kind of sh*t is that?

This thread is bullsh*t.

I was a big VC fan but I gotta say T-Mac by a fair margin if we going off the prime of their careers. T-Mac made offense look so effortless and he virtually could play 4 positions. Plus his overall commitment to the game was WAY better than Vince. Even though T-Mac never took a team of the first round (if you don't count that year in Houston when he was hurt), what he did on the court with that atrocious supporting cast in Orlando was pretty amazing.

VC was an exciting player to watch and an explosive scorer, but he never took his game to the next level in terms of defense and was mainly a perimeter player. Someone with his athleticism could have been much more deadlier offensively and defensively.

VC was better in his prime and career then T-Mac.. Scoring wise T-mac (could have) been better but he hasn't be active as much as Vince has over their careers..

Vince has done a lot more in terms of achievements also and getting his teams somewhere..

Not to forget VC is a better dunker and shooter then T-Mac overall.. There isn't much to say in this discussion between the two.. T-Mac is the better defender but thats really about it..
VC better shooter?!?!?!

u only go as far as the talent and chemistry your team has. so it's tmacs fault G.Hill was injured all the time and he had nobody close to great on that roster?

Nets were a nice team. If Tmac were switched with VC on that team with Kidd they woulda made it to the Finals


It takes 7-8 talented hardworking guys to win a chip. Kobe-Shaq were good as fu*k but they needed Dfish, Horry,+w/e.

Dirk-Kidd are HOFer but they needed Terry,JJ,Chandler or else they would not of made it out the first round.


Tmac-Yao coulda been as great as any other duo but the Rockets were cheap and surrounded them with roleplayers like Sura, Wesleys, JHow, Ryan Bowen. cmon son..

LeBron in Cleveland was probably just as good as Kobe. So Kobe had rings, that doesnt always mean sh*t. Horry had 6+ rings so he's better than Karl Malone? fu*kouttahereboi!

Anyways for the ones that Voted Tmac, CORRECT!

Tmac was better @ Scoring, ballhandle, passing, creating, postgame, defense, draw fouls

VC was better @ dunking, alleyooops, arm in the rim, hit alot of clutch shots.

T-Mac and it's not even close.

The argument used to be T-Mac vs. Kobe for a reason.

Who is Vince Carter to these goblins?

I watched T-Mac the whole time he played here in Houston and in the end he was a disappointment. He never played at an elite level in the playoffs...VC

It really is T-Mac and it isn't all that close. Kinda interesting question cause VC did have the better career (which it is possible for an inferior player to have a better career, luck/coaching/teammates/competition all have nothing to do with how good of a basketball player someone is). VC was one of the most exciting and athletic players ever too so his career will be more memorable in retrospect, but T-Mac is one of the few players in NBA history that was literally unguardable AND was a better defender. Better offense + better defense = better player
