Vince Carter says he was just joking about Dwight Howard crack
Mavericks guard didn't actually mean to insult Dwight Howard in calling him a crybaby.
"Everybody is blowing it out of proportion," Carter said. "First of all, we were just playing around joking. It was a joke because he said it to me first. And we were complaining about his 3 seconds [in the lane]. He was saying, stop crying. And I said, you're the biggest crybaby."
See, that sounds more like Vince Carter. Professional, even-keeled, and supportive of everyone in the league, regardless of whose team they're on. Carter's not known to be one to take swipes at guys. It sounded out of character. Giving Howard a hard time makes this story a lot more sense.
So, yeah. Vince Carter: not as much of a macho dude as we may have thought. As always, context is kind of a big deal.
