Vince Carter was at his basketball academy in Orlando Thursday when he got the call he'd been traded to the Magic. ""Vince runs out of the gym screaming ... screams of joy," said a witness. "He was so happy he was getting a chance (at a ring) at this stage of his career." Carter spoke about his challenges in the Magic Kingdom, not his successes in New Jersey. Still, some in Orlando think of him as "fool's gold".
