In an interview with Toronto reporters, Vince Carter gave new context to why he doesn't want to talk money til after the season: he learned a lesson in 2001, the last time he was up for a contract. "To be honest with you, I think I worried about it too much (in 2001)," he said. Carter also declined comment on his marital status. According to reports, he and his wife are in the midst of divorce proceedings.
Meanwhile, Carter's divorce from Raptors' fans remains ugly, nearly two years after the trade.
