Former #1 pick Anthony Bennett was just a 6 year old boy in Toronto when Vince Carter first put on a #15 Raptors jersey and caused an epidemic in the city after he put down his first dunks. Over the following 6 years, Vince was one of the most popular players in the league and the favorite player of Bennett who had dreams of one day playing for the Raptors.
That dream happened this summer when Bennett signed for the veteran’s minimum of $947,928. If it wasn’t great enough for Bennett to be given another chance at proving himself back in his hometown, the Raptors even gave him his childhood idol’s old number.
On Thursday, Bennett looked like he was possessed with the spirit of Vinsanity – at least for a moment – when he threw down a Carter worthy dunk over the Lakers Robert Upshaw that had Nick Young even saying “whoa” on the Lakers’ bench.
Bennett finished the game with 4 points and 3 rebounds in 7 minutes.
IT MUST BE THE JERSEY
