Vince Carter’s 1995 McDonald’s All American High School Dunk Contest

Vince Carter’s 1995 McDonald’s All American High School Dunk Contest

 

After 22 seasons, 25,728 points, 6606 rebounds, 4714 assists, 1530 steals and 888 blocks, Vince Carter is calling it a career – more or less voluntarily.

With the Atlanta Hawks not being among the 22 teams that will continue with the NBA season in Orlando, Vince Carter’s retirement came early, abrupt and undeservingly unspectacular.

The man who played in the league in four different decades, would have deserved a better ending to his career than what coronavirus has given him.

To at least give him somewhat of a great exit, we’ll be looking back on his incredible career and honor him with some of his greatest moments and stories. One of which happened before his time in the NBA. In a star-packed McDonald’s All American Slam Dunk Contest in 1995, Vince beat Paul Pierce, with Kevin Garnett and Stephon Marbury watching.
