Vince Makes 10-Year-Old Feel Like 'The Most Popular Kid in School'

Alexander Garcia of Brooklyn was ready yesterday when Vince Carter arrived in a limousine to take him to PS 282. The winner of the second "Take-a-Net-to-School" promotion, Alex was wearing the Nets' new red road uniform--the one without "New Jersey" on it--bearing No. 15. At school, the Nets had Jersey-free t-shirts for everyone. Coincidentally or not, the event took place just hours before critics had their last chance to deliver objections to plans for the new Nets arena, not far from the school.
