Vince Carter led his high school marching band

There are a lot of reasons to poke fun at Vince Carter. Despite having a pretty solid NBA career, he's been a whipping boy for being a bit soft. Well, here's more fodder: Via SI Vault, Carter was his high school's drum major at Daytona Beach. Don't take my word for it, observe this wonderful picture.



This isn't exactly breaking news. But it's news to me. And probably you. Aren't you glad you have this bit of information? Think about the next time, whenever that may be, that Carter visits your city. You should be able to have fun with this.

But the bright side for Vinsanity is that he's at least got a hobby for the NBA's extended offseason.

I would like to see Royce Young tallk noise to the drum major at Southern/Gramlin/TSU/PVU/etc. 

Bet it wouldn't go well
No doubt!  Those band are amazing!  My son has one more year and then is most likely off to Texas A&M to join the Corps of Cadets and perfomr in their marching band.  The A&M doesn't march for show, they march military style.  If you ever get the chance, google the A&M Aggie Band...those kids march up and down the field (all 100 yards) anywhere from 4-6 times...they aren't flashy like Southern or egotistical like USC....just precision marching.  Heck...the drum majors at those school mentioed above are probably like rock stars on their campus....

From a guy who's son is in a high school marching band.....all I ask is....and what?  So he was a drum major...great for him!  It's very prestigeous (sp?) to be the drum major.  The way our high school does it is kids have to try out for it, must be a leader, great grades, and have been very good at whatever instrument they played. 

All this tells me is that Vince Carter must have been a pretty good student in high school and a very talented band member...and does anyone mock band members anymore?  That was so 80's!

Royce Young has got to be white.  In the black community the drum major is well respected.  Most drum majors will probably whoop Royce Young.

I would like to see Royce Young tallk noise to the drum major at Southern/Gramlin/TSU/PVU/etc. 
Bet it wouldn't go well.

Not sure I understand the tone of this article, either.  I wasn't thrilled with the way Vince acted shortly before he left Toronto, but the guy has always been a great philanthropist.  He donated $2.5 million to his high school to rebuild their athletic facilities, including a new gym.  He has also donated large amounts of money to UNC.

Being in the school marching band to me isnt something to make fun of and i was a jock in highschool and college, the only thing that makes me laugh about this is the pose carter is in as he blows on the whistle, its a funny picture because id never think of carter being dressed like that marching around, its a funny picture and thats all it is.

Royce Young... Way to attempt to make sports fans in general look like total jerkoffs.  How old are you?  Last I checked, the band stopped being made fun of after high school. You know the whole maturation period that college is...you must've missed that part..

If you know anything about the FAMU band, you'd know how great an honor that is...   One of the top bands in the country...  And trust me, they are VERY popular with the females!  #Royce Fail
