“It’s possible. I don’t think I would win but I think I could make it interesting to say the least.”

That’s the quote from the near 40-year old Dunk GOAT when asked before the 2016 NBA dunk contest if he thinks he could still compete in the NBA dunk contest. And it’s true, Vince Carter could still “compete” in the dunk contest, if you mean enter and perform dunks just like Will Barton and Andre Drummond did last year.  And he would lose just like those two participants in the Zach vs Gordon show.  The only difference is Vince would still get high scores and cheers because of who he is, what he has done and how old he is. With that said, with the right dunks and creativity, he could make the dunk contest one of the most interesting ever.

Anyways, let’s not get carried away and disrespect any of the league’s current best dunkers by saying a 40-year old Vince could beat them in the 2017 dunk contest; Let’s just appreciate what Vince has done in the past by checking out the best windmill dunks he’s ever done from age 15 to age 39.
