Video: Top 10 Vince Carter Plays ’08-09

A quiet but stellar season for Mr. Carter.

VC will always be VC. He’ll still contort faces after a gravity-abusing dunk. He’ll still drop nightly threes in his opponents grill. And despite all the aches and pains of age, Vince experienced a revival this season, and it can’t be found in his per game stats. Watch Mr. Carter’s impressive feats. He not leaping as many tall buildings in a single bound, but his wile makes him just as deadly.

  • james

    none of his dunks have any aggression in them any more. hes a shooter over a dunker nowadays

  • Geoff

    I love how in #3 and #1, the opposing team is just in disbelief. VC for life…don’t trade my VC away.

  • underdog

    VC just making it look easy.

  • James aka…

    Even worse #3 and #1 were the same game. That was the first major blow in the series of blows that cost SMitch his job.

    MVP! MVP! MVP!

    Did they really need to show each highlght 6 times? How fu*king annoying for some middle of the road highlights.

  • vmcb

    Wha….no crab dribble?

    Awesome season for sure, here’s hoping he gets traded somewhere that matters.

  • Josh

    Vince is like an unmotivated Kobe. The Toronto game was big for him because he hates that organization, but other than that he doesn’t seem to care about basketball.

  • ikot

    dude promised he won’t dunk anymore – sorry Toronto

    Did you SEE…VC??!!!???

  • http://slamonline.com Russ Bengtson

    V dot Carter, you must try harder.

  • ti-sizz

    sighh.. the decline really really shows though.. his hops are about twice what it once was, so his dunks have become more the gliding type that barely reaches over the rim..

  • riggs


  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBQEmmgDl9I Boing Dynasty

    sizz, you mean half, not twice.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBQEmmgDl9I Boing Dynasty

    Q: Who slams harder, Onyx or Vince Carter?
    A: …

  • thegfunk

    If vince had carried on dunking, he’d be a desmond mason type round about now and he would not be captain of a team. He still get up there. HALF MAN HALF AMAZING

    after this season, all vince carter hate is unjustifiable.

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    nobody else could have done no. 7. that was insane. wow!

  • http://myspace.com/yungjames187 Smoovetendo

    they’ve been asking they’ve been searching they’ve been wondering. this song actually fits vince carter wayyyy better than it fits lil wayne or jayz

  • http://canadianballer.blogspot.com/ karma

    love VC to this day, always have. I’m from Toronto…all these fans from Toronto need to get the f*k over VC and stop booing him. Toronto would not have been on the map without VC’s prescence…look @ where we are now with Chris Bosh (who is NOTTTTTTTTTTT a franchise player!).

  • ti-sizz

    ohhh.. that’s right Boing, good catch. HALF!! dang all that wear and tear on his knees

  • ti-sizz

    and who’s onyx.. time to youtube

  • http://canadianballer.blogspot.com/ karma

    onyx…slam harder than vince carter?? Damn I’m startin to feel old

    First of all: thank you Tarzan Cooper. Secondly: I’m a Nets fan, and you can say whatever you want about the guy, but I like 20-5-5 numbers. I like it that when he makes those layups (like no. 7 or no. 9) it seems so smooth. So easy. I think it was Ryne Nelson who said that Carter was deceptively slow, and I like what he meant by that.
    Sure, all those fade-away 3′s drive me nuts sometimes, and he’s sometimes too friendly with the opponent he just got beat by, but he’s the best veteran leader the Nets can wish for. He could be complaining, he could demand a trade, but he doesn’t. He leads the team, and keeps on playing – whether he’s scoring or showing off what a great passer he is. 80 games this season, around his average in the last 5 seasons. I’m getting a bit tired of all the hate he gets by most of the people here, but that’s how it goes I suppose.

    Is all there is to say. All the Vince haters need to let it go now. I bet most of these people complaining about Vince dunking or not dunking, probably can’t even dunk in a game themselves…

  • RM

    Although i’m a die hard raptors fan.. VC was my first true love, and I will never forget him <3

  • http://sjsu.edu davidR

    i’d play passively too if i were vince and i heard “DID YOU SEE… VC?!” everytime i made a highlight

  • http://aol.com truf

    Issue 126 (7?), Lang wrote this up. “Hey, Mr. Carter.”

  • big bad boss

    i just love his facial expression after the #1 play.. its like he knows what will happen

  • T-man

    VC baby!!!

  • Hurachie

    He dont got the old swag no more.

  • larrylegend

    i never get tired of seeing VC making a last second three vs. the raptors. priceless.

  • http://slamonline.com/online/category/blogs/fear/ Fred34

    What NJ’s take on Vince? Love him, like him or other?

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    He still does his motorbike thingy after dunks? What’s next, Quentin bumping fists to his forehead after dunks? Oh wait, Q don’t do dunks no more. Hmm, still like his game and he’s a very, VERY quick leaper. No longer has that extraterrestrial hangtime but he still dunks on fools (like the one on Ghostface… A LOT)

  • http://its-mitch.blogspot.com Paps

    No one windmills like VC. So much style.

  • kracka

    Good job Vince on destroying the Kings,Wizards,Knicks,Clippers,Raptors.

  • Blinguo

    Yeah, what’s up with the 6 times in a row in full speed. One regular, 2 in slow mo or alternate angles is the way to go, extra for the best ones only. But still a strange compilation to work on and probably less time goes into this than his turn of the century masterpieces.

  • Will

    GET OFF VC’s NUTS!! This guy is a great ball player, and who cares if he doesn’t get up as high anymore, point is he’s a better player now, than he was when he was dunking over everyone, and not only that, but I’m willing to bet that the other players in the league still respect his leaping ability. He can still get up like that but he only uses it when he has to.

  • James

    Number four had some aggression. Classic VC
