Vince Carter: Lots of Dunks


Vince Carter is still playing pro basketball. At this point he is the only Dean Smith coached player still in the NBA. Somehow, despite the presence of Jerry Stackhouse, Carter was not at the UNC-UK Alumni game as a player. The crowd missed out. Carter’s antics above the rim made him into a legend. They also made a young Andrew Wiggins dream of suiting up with the Toronto Raptors.

Carter is now with Memphis, playing out the string with the Grizzlies. He has been with several teams since the Raptors, with his most notable stops being with the Mavericks and the Nets. Those yeam-ups with Jason Kidd and Dirk Nowitzki did not ultimately gain Carter the title he wanted, but they kept him relevant. Nowadays it is his shooting range and not his slashing that keeps him on rosters.

Yet if you missed the olden times, check out this compilation of Vince Carter dunks put together on Youtube by House of Hoops. It takes awhile, so better go get some popcorn. Carter and the Grizzlies will be in action soon enough.


Carter’s teammate Shammond Williams was one of the Heels on hand for the Kentucky-UNC alumni game to benefit charity. The Heels lost 122-117 behind thirty nine points from Harrison Barnes. Other Tar Heels who made appearances included Bobby Frasor, Dexter Strickland, Leslie McDonald, James Michael McAdoo, Wes Miller, and Stackhouse.
