[CSNBY] Part of Vince Carter's pregame routine when he was teammates with Dell Curry? 1-on-1 vs Steph

Vince Carter and Dell Curry were teammates with the Raptors for three seasons -- 1999-00 through 2001-02.

Therefore, Steph Curry spent his middle school years north of the border.

Carter was a guest on the most recent episode of the Pardon My Take Podcast and said that he used to frequently play 1-on-1 vs Steph.

What was the two-time MVP like at that age?

"Itching to play," Carter explained. "It was routine for us. I'd do my pregame ritual and work out and shoot. And after that, he was like, 'You ready? You ready?' We'd play 1-on-1. Both of 'em -- he and Seth -- could always shoot.

"Always practicing. It was like that kid who loves to play sports -- he walks around always working on his jump shot, pretending to dribble. Both of them were that kind of kid."

Golden State drafted Carter (who will turn 42 years old in January) fifth overall in 1998, but he was traded to Toronto for Antawn Jamison and never actually wore a Warriors uniform.

On the podcast, Carter let it be known that he is going to retire after the 2018-19 season, which means this summer is his last chance to join the Warriors.

He may not have that opportunity (or want it) because we have heard Steve Kerr and Bob Myers repeatedly say they want to get younger this offseason.

We will find out as early as next week...
