As the news about Vince Carter spreads like wildfire, fans and athletes alike remember their most touching moments with the North Carolina alum. Carter's career spans over 22 years, starting and ending the same way, a shortened season. Despite the asterisk of those seasons, it doesn't take away Carter's prolific career and, most importantly, crowned as one of the best dunkers the NBA has witnessed.
In celebration of Carter's career, let's take a trip down memory lane and revisit his top 10 dunks of all time.
