I’m not exactly sure what the man to amazing ratio is these days, but the legendary high flyer formerly known as Air Canada has proven that he’s still not 100% human just yet.  Seeing this live was rather shocking, as I have witnessed neither a Carter move nor leap so explosive since at least two seasons ago.  I’m glad I flipped the channel just in time to catch it…

Shades of a young VC going baseline and skying over one of the greatest shot blockers of all-time.  Before my mind could even process any feelings of excitement about the dunk at hand I was seeing a flashback to that late-’90s classic over Mount Mutombo.  VC isn’t quite what he used to be, and Emeka Okafor is no Deke, but still… this was pretty awesome.  It damn sure doesn’t look like a dunk from a man who will turn 35 later this month.  Honorable mention to Carmelo Anthony.
