Professional career

Toronto Raptors (1998–2004)

Carter was initially drafted by the Golden State Warriors with the fifth overall pick in the 1998 NBA draft.

Carter was instrumental in leading the Raptors to their first ever playoff appearance in 2000 before going on to lead them to a 47-win season and their first ever playoff series win in 2001, advancing them to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.Due to the NBA lockout, Carter's rookie season did not start until January 1999. Carter quickly became a fan favorite with a soaring offensive game that earned him the nickname "Air Canada". He won the NBA Rookie of the Year Award after averaging 18.3 points and throwing down countless highlight-reel dunks.WEB, Campigotto, Jesse,weblink Vince Carter: His rise and fall with the Raptors,, November 20, 2014, December 18, 2017, Carter ascended to full-fledged stardom in his second season – he averaged 25.7 points per game (fourth-highest in the league) and lifted Toronto to its first playoff appearance in franchise history. He subsequently earned his first NBA All-Star selection and was named to the All-NBA Third Team.

He won the contest by performing an array of dunks including a 360° windmill, a between the legs bounce dunk, and an "elbow in the rim" dunk (also known as a "cookie jar" dunk or the "honey dip"). Carter and his distant cousin Tracy McGrady formed a formidable one-two punch as teammates in Toronto between 1998 and 2000. However, McGrady was dealt to the Orlando Magic in August 2000, leaving Carter as the Raptors' franchise player. It is believed by some that the Raptors could have won championships if McGrady and Carter stayed together in Toronto.WEB,weblink Video: T-Mac, Vince and Oakley Look Back,, November 4, 2011, December 18, 2017, (File:Lipofsky Vince Carter.jpg|thumb|left|Carter with the Raptors in November 2000)In 2000–01, his third season, Carter averaged a career-high 27.6 points per game, made the All-NBA Second Team, and was voted in as a starter for the 2001 NBA All-Star Game.

Trade to the Nets

During the 2004 off-season, general manager Glen Grunwald and the entire coaching staff were fired following the team's failure to reach the playoffs.

Carter was also given the impression that Peddie would consider Julius Erving as a serious candidate for general manager; however, it was later disclosed that Erving was never really in the mix. Peddie instead hired Rob Babcock as general manager, whose first priority in rebuilding the Raptors was to "establish our philosophy", stating "we are not really worried about how many wins we get right away, or whether we make the playoffs within the first year or two."WEB,weblink Raptors hire ex-Wolf Babcock as GM – NBA- NBC Sports,, June 7, 2004, July 25, 2012, He then hired Sam Mitchell as head coach.NEWS, Harris, Aaron, Raptors Hire Mitchell,weblink Daily News, June 30, 2004, Consequently, much speculation arose whether Carter wanted to be traded.

When asked about being booed in Toronto, Carter said, "They watched myself and Tracy grow up. And when we left they still got to see (us) flourish and become (who we are). For me, I looked at it as, a young child growing up into a grown man and moving on. And I get it. Leaving, hurt a lot of people. It hurt me because I tell you what...
