Vince Carter, The Dunk of Death, and All The Memories

It's been 14 years since Vince Carter jumped over Frederic Weis at the 2000 Olympics. Nope, still not sick of watching this dunk.


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.
