As Vince Carter officially called in a career after 22 seasons in the league, the NBA is now further moving on from its connection to the 1990s.
Prior to his retirement, Carter was the last active player in the league drafted in the 90s.
Only 2 years ago, there will still 4: Carter, Dirk Nowitzki, Manu Ginobili, and Jason Terry.
Ginobili and Terry both retired in 2018, while Nowitzki followed suit the year after.
Carter, an 8-time all-star, spent most of his career with the Toronto Raptors where he won the 2000 NBA Dunk Contest.
He also had stops for the New Jersey Nets, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, and Sacramento Kings, before ultimately retiring as part of the Atlanta Hawks.
The 6-5 shooting guard played his final game in March against the New York Knicks prior to the season suspension, hitting a triple towards the end of the game that was deemed a fitting way to exit the sport.
