I’m just going to be honest here: Vince Carter beat Johan Petro because he’s Vince Carter.  When the dunks in question are of a similar caliber I normally go with the one that was more of a facial, which, in this case, would be Petro’s… but I’m rolling with VC’s fly-by on Whiteside because, well, would you ever read this blog again if I took Johan Petro over Vince Carter in any sort of tossup that involved slam dunking?  I didn’t think so. I airmailed a finger roll like that on my Nerf hoop one time.  I’ve done it many times, actually.  Like Carter, I always respond by dunking the ball ferociously.  Me and Half Man, we’re basically the same… assuming I’m playing on a pint-sized goal.

Dallas Mavericks Share The Wealth In Scoring In Win Over The Sacramento Kings
