Vince Carter is averaging 16 minutes per game for the Atlanta Hawks this season, and that’s an incredible accomplishment because he’s 42 years old (and 43 on Jan. 26). The eight-time NBA All-Star got 21 minutes of action in Atlanta’s 101-93 win over the Orlando Magic on Monday night, and showed he still has playmaking ability.

In the first quarter, Carter found himself double-teamed, and beat the defense with a through-the-legs pass to Brandon Goodwin. It turned into a very crafty assist.

These are no longer the crazy dunk Vinsanity days, but Carter is still finding ways to stay entertaining and useful as the NBA’s oldest player (by over three years).
