As we noted at the time, SLAM's online trashing of Vince Carter couldn't have sat well with Gary Sussman, the Nets' P.R. man, P.A. announcer and now P.O'ed emailer. Sussman sez SLAM implied VC faked his ankle injury and that was out of bounds: Carter "could easily have shut it down at the All-Star break. This is not spin…this is fact." Without admitting its writer had commited a flagrant, SLAM published Sez email.
