It’s been a solid 15-years or so since Air Canada Flight 15 was regularly rocking rims and making highlight reels as a member of the Toronto Raptors (plus who could forget that performance in the Dunk Contest). But Vince Carter is now 40-years-old (or so he claims) and winding down his playing days as a member of the Memphis Grizzlies.
Although he doesn’t put up the same kind of numbers he did in the early 2000s, Carter is still getting it done and averaging just over 24 minutes of court time per game. And then the Grizzlies released this video on their official Twitter account, showing Carter turning back the clock (if he even ages at all, that is), and casuall dropping a half court bomb before unleashing a between-the-legs dunk worth of at least a 9.5 from any Dunk Content judge.
Just a casual between-the-legs dunk. Nbd.

If only the rest of us could still perform like that into our fourth decade on this planet.
