NBA tells Vince Carter to stop listening to iPod during warmups: If being a threat to national security wasn’t bad enough, now iPods are causing problems with NBA players.

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.
