The Dunk Heard Round the World Turns 15
The year 2000 was quite the time. We all believed Y2K was going to kill us. M Night Shymalan was labeled as the next great director in the making. We actually had to get in our cars and drive to a Netflix store....though back then it was called Blockbuster.
In the midst of it all, Vince Carter, representing United States basketball, jumped straight over 7'0 French center Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, completing the feat with a show stopping dunk that added two points to an eventual 106-94 American victory.
For your convenience and viewing pleasure, here is that dunk once again. Be amazed. Be mystified. And wince every time because you're so sure that VC is about punch Kevin Garnett square in the face afterwards.
Geoff Magliocchetti believes this could be the dunk that proved American basketball was going to be just fine after Michael Jordan's retirement. Agree or disagree on Twitter @GeoffMags5490.
