Even at age 38, Vince Carter has mad hops

Just a few days ago we were talking about Vince Carter throwing down the greatest in-game dunk in history — clearing 7'2" Fredric Weis during the 2000 Olympics.

That was 23-year-old, high-flying Carter. What kind of springs does he have left at 38? Pretty darn good ones.

Carter’s role with the Grizzlies is not that of high-flying dunking machine (that’s Zach Randolph... er, wait), rather Carter is there to provide three-point shooting and veteran stability off the bench. Things he’s done well in the twilight of his career.

But with those hops he’s going to turn back the clock at least once this season — and that’s going to be awesome.
