Carter made a name for himself with his incredible aerial displays, so the dunk was the best way for him to get to that mark.
Now 41, Carter has remained a valuable player by reshaping his game and role 20 years after making his NBA debut. He’s been willing to come off the bench and mentor youngsters, which has allowed him to extend his career and reach such milestones.
Carter is 26th all time in career points and may be able to pass a few players in front of him this season, like Jerry West, Rick Barry and Reggie Miller.
