NBA Bans Carter From Using IPod in Warmups

November 16, 2004

NEW YORK (AP) _ Vince Carter has to listen to his favorite tunes on his own time.

The Toronto Raptors star was informed by the NBA that he no longer can listen to music on his iPod during the 20-minute warmup period before each game. Carter recently started listening to the music on his headphones, a violation of the league’s rules on proper attire.

When the NBA heard about it, the league called the Raptors.

``We informed them that he can no longer do that,″ NBA spokesman Brian McIntyre said Tuesday.

Carter has said he listens to the music in order to focus before a game.
