VIDEO: Rockets’ James Harden shares moment with Vince Carter after career night vs. Hawks
However, the great moment all NBA fans will appreciate and remember is the beautiful moment between Harden and Vince Carter.
Carter has announced that this season will be his last, and this retirement tour is allowing the rest of the NBA to say goodbye to one of its most electrifying players during the 2000s.
The cameras caught The Beard and Vinsanity hugging it out and exchanging words after the game.

During his prime, Vince Carter was one of the most exciting players in the league. In his peak years, he was averaging 26.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.9 assists. After his athleticism and monstrous dunks have gone, he became known for his versatility, defense and shooting off the bench.
It’s really incredible how Carter still is a viable role player at 42 years old.
Game respects game, and Harden definitely recognizes Carter’s contributions. While they still have one game left to play, the two are making the most of the time they share on the court.
