Emotional Carter Dedicates Hometown Gym

Vince Carter had to stop several times during a speech Saturday dedicating a new gym--and sculpture of himself--in Daytona Beach, Florida. The Nets' guard recalled his own struggles and talked about how his Rookie of the Year award and big contracts were nothing compared to the thrill he gets giving back. The scupture, conceived and directed by his mother, shows Carter in a suit directing another child, modeled after his troubled brother, across a bridge.
