BOTTOM LINE:

  • Where to start. Vince Carter is one of my favorite all time players and he is always a god in 2K. When I saw this card I knew I had to get him to have that duo with the new opal Tracy McGrady. I would just like to put the disclaimer that I didn’t complete collections and seriously grinded to get James Worthy and Vince Carter. I was tempted to get Bob Pettit because I knew he would be better but Vince Carter’s Card art looked amazing and Pettit’s looked bad and I wanted a fun slasher Card. I waited about 3 days to post this so I could get a fair review. He plays literally identical to both of his Pink Diamonds. He doesn’t feel 6’6 which is already undersized this year. He feels like he is 6’3. He can’t play good defense. His release is on the slow side and LITERALLY EVERYTHING IS LIGHTLY CONTESTED. He doesn’t dunk without Takeover and misses all his lightly contested and higher layups. His dribble moves are also pretty bad. I’m seriously mad that I wasted 750 hard earned tokens on thus mediocre card. Do not spend your tokens on this card no matter what. James Worthy and Bob Pettit should be your first two and after that get Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid, Clyde Drexler and Brian Fucking Scalabrine before you think about Vince. I also spent 60 tokens on Diamond Morris Peterson and he is a much better card who actually made my lineup over Vince Carter.

    i dont feel he sucks like you say , i have him since yesterday , he poster everybody with or without takeover , his timing is not the faster but i green all my open shots , and go in with light or moderate contested.
    when takeover activated for me ( slash/ creator with kerr and foamposite wheatherman) , IT'S OVER. for me its not a waste of tokens , its all fun in TTO with more than 10points everygame

    I wouldn’t say so. I have used this card for about 15 unlimited games and 15 triple threat games by now. It’s not that I’m a bad player either, I’ve gone 12-0 about 10 times now
