In honor of Team USA basketball and their current quest for a gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics, we flashback to an iconic Olympic moment. Vince Carter is widely known as one of greatest dunkers in NBA history. During the 2000 Sydney Olympics, “Vinsanity” executed arguably one of the single greatest finishes of all time. Carter managed to take off and clear opposing defender, French Center Frederic Weiss, who stood at a remarkable 7-foot-2. Although you may not be used to seeing Vince with hair as you do in this clip, we are certainly used to seeing him posterize defenders at will.
Even teammate Kevin Garnett looks impressed.
