Grizzlies' Vince Carter admits he rewatches epic 2000 Slam Dunk Contest

BY foxsports • October 13, 2016

Athletes, they're just like the rest of us! In Vince Carter's case, that's true when it comes to reliving one of the greatest moments of his career.

It was at the 2000 Slam Dunk Contest in Oakland, and Carter put on a show punctuated with an unforgettable dunk off a high-bounce from Tracy McGrady -- his then-Raptors teammate and cousin -- and pulled it between his legs before finishing the slam.

That dunk contest, in all its forms, has over 3 million views on YouTube, and yes, the man who delivered that iconic slam has joined the rest of us in rewatching it.

Asked by Cory McCartney on FOX Sports South's College Countdown podcast whether he goes back and relives the moment the current Grizzlies swingman replied:

You can listen to Carter's entire segment, in which he also discusses the keys to playing nearly two decades in the NBA, his affection for WWE and he makes his college football picks for the ACC's Week 7 games.

And, of course, here's Carter delivering that epic dunk.
