    Even more remarkable when you consider that he is also the only player to play with no hair in 4 separate decades in the NBA.

    Might just be the photo, but without the beard he looks like he's barely aged.

    It's kinda sad to think about. Think of all the old greats who are, well, just old. Times ticking. We'll all be gone before you know it.

    Last one to leave turn the lights off :(

    More astounding, think of the players who have come and gone since he entered the league.

    Don't worry scientists will probably discover a pathway to immortality involving gene editing sometime shortly after you die, no need to worry about turning the lights off!

    You can celebrate anything nowadays, this is not an accomplishment...it is however amazing that he's still dunking, still has not chased a ring and can say he's played against many greats of different generations.

    Can’t have a VC thread without some highlights so here we go.



    It’s crazy to think at one point he was called “half man half a season”.

    Vince played in 2 separate decades vs MJ, in 3 separate decades vs Duncan/Kobe/Nowitzki, and in 3 separate decades vs LeBron/Harden/Durant. Also played against both Sabonis Sr in 2 separate decades and against Sabonis Jr in 2 separate decades.

    A bit of a mindf*ck.

    Well I've lived in 9 decades & I didn't feel "OLD" till this past year. I was visiting my eldest son & noticed he had a subscription to AARP!

    Exactly
    He’s repeatedly said he’s not ring chasing
    He wants to be on a team that gives him playing time

    he’s doing for the love of the game
    He’s pure

    people who haven't been alive for 4 decades can't criticize a nba player who's played in 4 decades
