Vince Carter of the Atlanta Hawks and Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks are both active players who experienced the NBA in the 90's and are the only remaining players on the NBA stage in the '70s. Manu Ginobili of San Antonio had been with them until last year but only two players were left in August when Ginobili declared his retirement.
Vince Carter, who first got the nickname "Air Canada", is 41 years old born in January 26, 1977, and is currently the oldest NBA player. He was named Golden State Warriors in the first round of the 1998 draft, but Carter, who began his career in the Toronto Raptors through trade, was nicknamed the Dunkman of Art, and brought Toronto residents to SkyDome, home of the day. His 98-99 season rookie was his, and he made the most of the Toronto playoffs.
Carter, who moved to the Nets in 2004 with a suspicion of injuries and sabotage, played a part in bringing the team to the conference semifinals together with Jason Kidd and Richard Jefferson. He was traded to Orlando Magic as a generation replacement and went to the conference finals, but he lost to Boston, hoping to win and was traded to the Phoenix Suns in 2011 to start his career.
Carter, who has not been in the first season in Phoenix, has been with the Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings for the past two seasons and has been in the Atlanta Hawks for 20 years. Although he was the best ace, his passion for basketball is so different that his self-esteem falls and his self-esteem is abandoned and Sixman becomes a bench member. He has averaged 17.5 minutes, 7.2 rebounds, 2.3 rebounds and 1 assists in the last five seasons.
And the last remaining 70s player, Dirk Nowitzki, with Carter, is one of Dallas' s living legends and NBA legends who have played in Dallas for 20 years since his debut in 1998.
Nowitzki, who was on the German stage from 1994 to 1998, was nominated for the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the NBA draft in 1998, but was traded to the Robert Trailer for the Dallas Mavericks. In the early stages, he struggled to adapt to the NBA, but he soon recovered his long-term shot, quickly becoming the center player of Dallas. Nowitzki, who led the team's career in the 2004-05 season with Steve Nash, was the legendary driver of the NBA Finals in 2011, following his regular league MVP in 2007.
In the 2010-2011 season, he was the strongest player in the Miami Heat, and despite being hit by the flu, he was able to make a clutch shot at every crucial moment, leading Dallas to the NBA championship and winning the Finals MVP. It remains. Nowitzki, who has served as the spiritual landlord of Dallas since then, has overtaken 3,000 points last season and has been named the NBA's oldest player with Vince Carter this season, bringing his last spark to career twilight. Although he had surgery due to an ankle injury in April, Pina began his rehabilitation at the end of his twenty-first season, returning on December 14th.
Vince Carter and Dirk Nowitzki, who fought against many of the NBA coaches' 20-year-old opponents over two decades, are continuing to challenge the end of their 2020s through the 90s and early 2000s.
