Watch: Vince Carter College Dunk Highlight Mix at UNC (Rare)

By the time current Dallas Maverick Vince Carter winds up his illustrious career, and hopefully it won’t be anytime soon, the player who became known as “Half Man-Half Amazing” for his insane leaping ability and devastating dunks may well have cemented himself a spot in the Naismith Hall of Fame.

The now 36 year old has etched his place in NBA history as one of the league’s best ever scorers, averaging 20.8 ppg for his career, and has scored more than 22,000 points to rank 27th all time.  He has also connected on more than 1,600 3 point shots, to rank between Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant for 11th all time.

But of course, what most people remember is his highlight reel dunks, most memorably when he jumped clear over 7 foot Frederick Weiss in the 2000 Olympics.

Then, who could forget his epic performance in the 2000 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, that many people consider the best dunking exhibition in the contest’s history.

Check out this rare video of Vince bending the rim when at the University of North Carolina and later in the video dunking on future Hall-of-Famer Tim Duncan…
