16. Vince Carter
Vince Carter’s playoff resume isn’t anything to write home about, but there’s no denying his impact on the NBA during the late 90s and 2000s. The Raptors acquired Carter in a draft day trade with the Warriors, and VC tore up the league in his rookie season; averaging 18.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1 to 2 jaw-dropping dunks per game. Fueled by his show-stopping dunks, Toronto became must-see TV and Carter earned the nickname “Vinsanity.”
He currently ranks 22nd on the all-time points list, just 300 points behind Lakers icon Jerry West. Carter has an untimely track record in terms of NBA Finals appearances. Carter was traded to the Nets a year after they made back-to-back finals, he then joined the Magic (2009) and Mavericks (2011) as both teams were coming off finals appearances.
