I actually remember watching this game. It was hyped so much leading up to it. They played this attempt over and over for like a week on Toronto sports broadcasts

My favourite part isn't even the dunk attempt, it's the reaction of the Lakers bench

The pass imo was out of this world good and on target, imo the pass was better than the dunk attempt. Was that Dell Curry (Stephs dad) passing it in? Clearly a bit of the passing creativity has fallen down to Steph even tho Dell is no where near the passer/overall player.

I've never seen that before. That would've been beyond incredible.

yeah that's Dell Curry. not near the overall player, but probably a better shooter. dude had the quickest release ive ever seen.

it was by accident he didnt intend for it to go off the backboard but he did used to throw a lot of great one hand lobs. was an MLB pitching prospect, drafted by the Orioles before he decided to play basketball.

o was it an accident? lol damn I thought he really meant that, than I take that back about the pass lol. I seen Doug Chrisite back in the Kings "great years" do that a few times to C-Webb off the board but not as far out, so naturally I thought Curry did the same but still looked good I guess

If he would've pulled that off it would've been the best in-game dunk in NBA history and would never be topped.

Did Curry truly say he wasn't trying to go glass there? Because if that backboard weren't there, it seems he would have out-thrown his coverage by about 20 yards and may have qualified himself for the worst pass attempt in NBA history. There wasn't even anyone within 20 feet of the hoop when he threw that rocket. Are you sure he said that wasn't intentional?

Woah... never saw this and Vince was my fav non Clips player of the early 00's. I think this would have been the greatest in game dunk of all time no question.

I don't have video of it, but I remember Penny at the top of the key (and in a half court set and not a fast break) throwing it down to Shaq near the basket by throwing it off the glass and having it bounce back into Shaq's hands. And it was on purpose.


I haven't seen video of this though...i just barely can remember it from when i was young and just started watching bball.

Only if Vince actually played next to a superstar. Shaq would have helped Vince tremendously in the mental department and those two would have easily won five rings if paired together.
