Vince Carter, Carmelo Anthony are the reasons Larry Nance Jr. doesn’t want NBA season to be canceled
Cleveland Cavaliers big man Larry Nance Jr. is hoping the 2019-20 season resumes because he loves playing basketball obviously. However, the Cavs forward was also looking forward to getting Vince Carter and Carmelo Anthony sign his Toronto Raptors and Denver Nuggets jerseys.
One of the biggest reasons I want this season to continue is because I had bought a Vince-Raptors and a Melo-Nuggets Jersey to ask them to sign for me 😅

Vince Carter is retiring from the NBA after the 2019-20 season. It would be a shame if his NBA career ends prematurely because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Carmelo Anthony, meanwhile, got back into the NBA this season in November after his more than one-year exile from the NBA.
Before the NBA season was suspended, Nance was averaging 10.1 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists for the Cavs while shooting 53.1 percent from the floor, 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 67.6 percent from the free-throw line.
To recall, the Cavs high-flyer donated $50,000 each to the Greater Cleveland Food Bank and Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank amid the coronavirus pandemic. Nance is an Akron native.
Larry began his NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers. The Cavs acquired him at the 2018 February trade deadline and signed him to an extension the following offseason. Since coming to Cleveland, Nance is putting up 9.6 points and 7.7 rebounds during the regular season.
