VC Happy Lebron is the 'Next Jordan'

Vince Carter was once the "next Michael Jordan", the "Air Apparent" to both the Nike and NBA thrones. But when Toronto failed, he was dismissed as just another false prophet and a new successor had to be found: his name is Lebron James. Carter remembers what it was like back then and doesn't miss it. Lebron, he says, is facing even more pressure because he is younger and filled with more potential. And when he plays the Nets, he is facing a tough matchup in Richard Jefferson.
