Vince Carter 2000: When the Slam Dunk Contest Was Awesome

If you were suffering through the once-awesome NBA Slam Dunk Contest last night as I was, then you may need a boost. A pick-me-up. Something to revive your flagging spirits.

Here it is: Vince Carter’s 2000 exploits. The music is a little suspect, but the dunks alone should be enough to erase horrible memories of last night’s “Miss 9 Dunks Before Belatedly Making the One We’re Now Embarrassed to See” charade. Turn on some late-90s rap if you really want to capture the mood.

And by the way, I don’t know what tonight’s game will look like. Let me hazard a wild guess: Kobe trying to out-Alpha Lebron. If the game happens for some reason to stink, watch these highlights of the 2001 All-Star game. It was amazing.
