Jackson Disses Carter Prior to 27-Point Outburst

Time for another Hall of Famer to question Vince Carter's superstar status. Two weeks after Magic Johnson and Charles Barkley did it, Phil Jackson had his turn Tuesday. Rather than question his physical capability, as the others did, Jackson questioned Carter's desire. Fred Kerber reports Carter is continuing rehab from an ankle injury ... and his success last night the result of a cortisone shot. Meanwhile, Jackson pal Charley Rosen disses Rod Thorn for not trading Carter and Jason Kidd.
