Vince Carter knows something about big game scoring, have unloaded a few himself. And while he was impressed by Kobe Bryant's 81-point explosion against his old team and thinks it will help the league, he also sees a downside: how the kids at home will react and possibly hurt their team game. "I think it is great for (the NBA): They want scoring, they want ratings, and you are going to get that...I just hope that kids and young guys understand that (only) special guys can do that."
