Memphis Grizzlies guard Vince Carter is perhaps best known for his incredible dunks and seemingly unheralded athleticism. Tuesday night he was known for his elbow.
Early in the game against the Phoenix Suns, Carter posted up Suns guard Devin Booker and then threw an elbow that sent Booker to the floor. Carter was hit with a flagrant-2 and ejected.
It's tough to understand why Carter threw his elbow like that or if Booker had said or done something earlier in the game that caused Carter to react the way he did, but, regardless, Carter hit the showers early and thankfully Booker was just fine.
