VIDEO: Lakers’ LeBron James shares moment with Vince Carter after final game against each other
The two stars faced off for possibly the final time, however, as the Los Angeles Lakers handed the Atlanta Hawks a 101-96 defeat at the State Farm Arena on Sunday.
Carter, 42, announced prior to the start of the 2019-20 campaign that this will indeed be his final season as a player. With that said, James came over to Carter after the final horn sounded and exchanged a hug and some pleasantries with the 21-year vet.
