Vince Carter has established himself as the senior citizen of the NBA and has made his way to the Sacramento Kings to finish his career potentially; it was only a matter of time before he caught some flack by one of the team’s many young guns.
Rookie De’Aaron Fox was the first to take a swap at the 19-year veteran, claiming his dunks from the 2000 Slam Dunk Contest were easy.

😳, easy wow!!! Lol RT @SiriusXMNBA: New @SacramentoKings member @swipathefox analyzing his teammate @mrvincecarter15’s ’00 @NBA Slam Dunk Contest dunks, said they were easy!
The man known as Half-man, Half-amazing threw down some of the most mind-blowing dunks of his era during that contest, considered one of the top, if not the best Dunk Contest of all-time.
What made Carter so dominant during this run was the fact that he nailed every single dunk he tried and did so in a splendid manner, putting the bar way too high for other great dunkers to try and get over.
Fox wasn’t even three years old when this dunk contest took place, and while this generation of athletes has proven to be a step above from the players of yesteryear, they also have a myriad of tape of former slam dunk stars to pattern their style after.
