02:42 PM ET 04.13 | Count Mark Cuban as a Vince Carter fan. Though Carter has played a sixth-man role on a disappointing Dallas Mavericks team that will miss the playoffs this season, the team's owner said the former All-Star has done more than been a solid contributor off the bench. Cuban says Carter has refurbished his image despite the Mavs' struggles. He added that Carter has some years left in the tank. "I feel bad for Vince," he said. "Vince is a warrior. All these things I've heard in the past about him being soft and not playing hard, (that's bull). That dude comes out to deliver every night ... He can play for more than a year, easily. He'll be cranking those motorcycle handles for a while."

VC is soft. He jacks up more 3s than Jamal Crawford. Nice try Cuban.

When did Vince Carter shed his soft label? I still remember when he was traded to the Magic. And the Magic told everyone that Carter was that missing part of a championship. How did that work out for the Magic?

Just wait until he breaks a nail and watch him wince in pain.

He is no longer even half amazing

It was embarrassing to watch him the last couple of years in Toronto. He cried after every hard foul. He would wince and roll on the floor like he was in extreme pain it seemed every second game.

Cuban should shed some weight and his own soft image.
