Vince Carter can still dunk a basketball

USA TODAY Sports

The Mavs swingman turned back the clock nearly a decade with three vicious assaults at the rim in their win over the Wizards on New Year's Day.

Ever since he came to Dallas in the year after the Mavs won a championship, Vince Carter has slipped off the radar for many NBA fans.

And while he's reportedly been a great locker room presence for the Mavs, he can still drive fans crazy with his often baffling shot selection.

However, every once in a while, he reminds everyone of why he was once known as "Half Man, Half Amazing". He had a vintage Vince in Toronto night on New Year's Day, including three monstrous dunks (see video at 14:58 and 4:30):

For my money, the most impressive is the third, where he soars through the defense and slams the ball through the net with authority that few guys, even today, can match.

Maybe the most underrated part of his game is his 6'11 wingspan, which has allowed him to remain a credible NBA player at the age of 36, when most athletic guards have long since left the league.

And in a season where nothing has gone right, Vince has provided some of the few highlights.
