Thirteen years to the day since he was traded from the Raptors to the Nets, future Hall of Famer Vince Carter played what could have been his final game north of the border as his current team, the Kings, lost to Toronto on Sunday (Monday, PHL time).
With any ill feelings from that departure long since dissipated, the home fans treated Carter to a standing ovation in the final minutes.

Carter, 41, then said that a potential return to the Raptors, even a ceremonial one, wasn't just possible, but is "supposed to happen."
