It's a different feeling for me. That clip always makes me happy. Vince Carter provided us with some of the most entertaining and mind-bending athletic feats in NBA and basketball world history. I enjoyed every second of his exploits.

I think it's safe to say that in this case, I benefitted from being a fan of the player and not the team. I was able to just sit back and enjoy the ride while Raptors fan unfortunately had other things they had to worry about. I just happened to be a Pistons die-hard who couldn't deny the electricity of VC.

Do you mean, like, why weren't they going hard and playing sloppy and whatnot? If that be the case, I don't know the answer, for I am unfamiliar with how intense those Entertainer's Basketball Classics really, really were in terms of non-stop defense and whatnot.

This game was supposed to be played at Rucker but was rained out and moved to the Gauchos Gym. As the story goes (according to an early 2000's doc called On Hallowed Ground) Vince sort of thought he could just make an appearance and let things play out (as can be seen with him letting the kid fire three after three unmolested). Then, he amps it up a little bit and magic happens.

That windmill is one of my favorite basketball moments ever. I just remember two guys right in front of the camera, one possibly wearing an Indians cap with a towel on his shoulder, look like they're going into convulsions. Awesome stuff.

That was the problem with VC his whole career IMO, he never molested the 3pt shooter enough.

the alley oop windmill is a signature dunk for Vince. Nobody else has done it better. funny thing is VC has several signature dunks.

Greatest dunker of all-time. I personally think he should be in the hall of fame, but we'll see.

I'm going to try my best not to deny the next revolutionary NBA dunker that comes along. I don't want to be like the guy who always insists that anything David Thompson did will be better than anything any new player ever attemts.

However, man, Vince Carter. . .I'm almost speechless in describing his dunk style. And you're right, he has a ton of signature dunks. And while nearly all of his dunks have been imitated, I'm not sure they've ever been truly duplicated. There is a certain way about Vince. . .it's not just the dunks he performs, but the way in which he performs them. I've seen a fair share of players pulling off his reverse windmill 360, but I'd say the vast majority just don't do it like he does. It's awesome.

He should be.

That game was whack though ...

He let Whole Lotta Game shoot.

And of course that kid couldn't defend VC to save his life.
