Vinsanity comes to town

The 2000 slam dunk contest was one of the best there ever was, and ever will be.

Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady, Steve Francis, Ricky Davis, Jerry Stackhouse and Larry Hughes put on one hell of a show for the fans.

At the time, Vince was known for his high-flying jams and the contest would just spotlight those attributes. When the night rolled around, Carter did not disappoint and gave everybody watching one highlight dunk after another.

Seriously, he did not put in one bad effort all night.

Carter was the obvious star, spinning around with a series of breathtaking moves that left everyone in fits. Most impressively, though not as fun to behold, he also dunked while putting his forearm into the basket, and took off from about the free throw line for a two-handed dunk. That last one was quite the feat.

'VC' became a household name and continued to wow with his high flying for a few years to come.
