At 42-years-old Vince Carter continues to defy Father Time.
The Atlanta Hawks veteran added another milestone to his illustrious career, becoming just the fifth player in NBA history to play in 1500 career games.
Carter joins Robert Parish (1,611 games), Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1,560), Dirk Nowitzki (1,522) and John Stockton (1,504) as the only players to reach the mark.
