It just came to my attention that today is the 14th anniversary of Vince Carter's "Dunk of Death" over Frederic Weis at the 2000 Olympics. It's still such a devastating moment -- in a good sense for Vince, in a literal sense for the rim, and in a very terrible sense for Weis -- and one of my favorite basketball moments ever.
If you haven't yet, Sam Riches wrote a piece about the dunk at The Classical last year, which you can read here.
And now, let's watch the dunk again. Every time I watch the clip, I wonder just how close Vince was to accidentally knocking Kevin Garnett out with his celebration. I feel like it was awfully close.
