This Really Iconic Vince Carter Slam Dunk Contest! Thanks SB Nation ^_^
Kenny so stupid for that 9, imagine it, if VC had all 50's going into that final dunk which is what he deserved, he definetely would've went for the 50 sweep meaning adding another one of the most iconic dunks of all time to dunk contest history...We got robbed of something absolutely spectacular, and I blame Kenny Smith😠
srsly how is it possible that a video about the greatest dunk contest performance so boring af? deep rewind more like deep sleep smfh
And then.... SUPERMAN....
Man, you guys missed a key part of this: This was held in Oakland, so if the dumbass Warriors hadnt traded Vince for Jamison, this wouldve been an awesome coming out party for them and for Vince on their home court.
Why Shawn Kemp never won is befoolery

I am surprised at the fact that you exclusively use the lowest quality possible for old footage when there is a ton of material out there i better quality and some remastered in HD.

Did VC hear Kenny Smith say "IT'S OVER!" or were they both just on the same page... lol

Funny thing, though -- Vince Carter's best dunk isn't shown here.
Just ask Fredric Weiss.

The Patriots vs. Rams Super Bowl Vince Carter’s iconic Dunk 1 day ago   11:43

It’s February 3rd, 2002. The Louisiana Superdome plays host to Super Bowl 36 where the St. Louis Rams and New England Patriots are tied at 17. With seven seconds left, Adam Vinatieri is lining up from 48-yards out to wrap this up and not give the Rams a chance in overtime.

While it all comes down to one kick, this season has been anything but straight forward. Which naturally means the underdog Patriots have the power to knock off the Rams who entered tonight as a two-touchdown favorite. But it’s not that simple - it wouldn’t be fun if it was. So to remember how we got to this point, let’s rewind.
