Vince Carter was already on his way to the Hall of Fame in the midst of his final NBA season. The veteran guard padded his case for the Hall by playing in his fourth different decade. Carter got into the game for the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night vs. the Indiana Pacers.

It was also the 1,510th game played for Carter, who has competed in the ‘90s, ‘00s, 2010s and now 2020s. Despite being 42 and in his 21st season in the NBA, Carter can still fill it up with five games in double-digit figures this season.
