Do you think Vince Carter could compete in the 2017 NBA Dunk Contest at age 40? "It’s possible. I don’t think I would win but I think I could make it interesting to say the least.” Said Carter. He might not have the hops he did 17 years ago but if he got creative and just pulled off his "basic" dunks, he probably could make it very interesting. Imagine the crowd reaction if he brought out Tracy McGrady and then did the "It's over!" motion after a dunk.
Vince Carter is just the 6th player in NBA history to record a 20-point game over the age of 40.
