Vince Carter Dunking And Mean-Mugging: A Christmas Miracle

Vince Carter went back in time, posterized a frenchman, mean mugged, and reminded us why he was so much fun to watch.

Damn, Vince Carter. It's good to see you! And, hey, Rudy Gobert. It's...OK to see you, I guess, but I gotta level with you, I didn't know who you were until VC went ahead and turned you into a poster, circa 2000. We've seen better dunks from Vince, of course, but there's something even more enjoyable than the young buck dunking all over the world and it is this: the wily veteran who can only dunk once a month or his bones will turn to dust. And the mean mug. God bless the mean mug.

Now, no one will blame you if you mail in the morning at work watching Vince Carter highlight videos and you should start with his performance in the 2000 olympics, when he victimized another frenchman, Frédéric Weis. You know it's a good dunk when it gets a name, and the french press named this one le dunk de la mortthe dunk of death. Which...yeah.
