A little tear came down by face yesterday – actually twice. Once while watching Big Hero 6 (don’t laugh if you haven’t seen it) and the other when DeMar DeRozan, who scored 13 in the 3rd, made a 360 layup against the 76ers. The reason for the over dramatic emotions was because everytime I see a player in a Raptors uniform execute a highlight like this one, I start thinking about all the good times during the Vinsanity era. I still remember the first time Vince and the Raptors played a Sunday game on national television and Carter had a 360 layup in that game.
So in honor of DeRozan’s homage, let’s look back at a few 360 shots from Mr. Carter including the one against the Suns on Sunday.
But first let’s check out DeMar’s highlights.

I know this is a miss but it was pretty.
