Vince Carter moved to tears over Raptors' touching tribute

BY foxsports • November 19, 2014

As part of the Raptors' ongoing 20th anniversary celebration this season, the team showed a video tribute Wednesday to a fan favorite and Toronto legend who became known as "Air Canada" -- the one and only Vince Carter.

Carter, 37 and now with the Grizzlies, made his only visit of the season to Toronto on Wednesday, and the fans showed him an uproarious welcome, giving the 17-year vet a standing ovation.

Carter's impact on the franchise can't be denied, as former Raptor Alvin Williams said earlier this season:

"He's done a lot not just for us for a team, but just for this country," Williams said of Carter. "You see the Canadian players now that are in the NBA and they're all a testament to him. That shows what he does, not only for the Raptors, but what he did for this whole country."

Carter is the fifth-eldest player in the league, so this could be his last in the NBA. If so, the folks in Toronto gave him a proper sendoff. Just look at his reaction, and watch the tribute video below.
