Watch: Memphis F Shaq Goodwin lands Vince Carter elbow dunk

Saturday February 13th, 2016

The NBA Dunk Contest will take place in Toronto tonight, and Memphis’s Shaq Goodwin paid homage to the high flying contest and earned a technical foul in the process during the team’s game against Tulane on Saturday afternoon.

Goodwin had a clear path to rim in the final minute of the first half and decided to use his leaping ability to mimic Vince Carter’s iconic elbow-on-the-rim “honeydip” dunk from the 2000 Dunk Contest.
