This is Still the Greatest In-Game Dunk of All Time
It happened on September 25, 2000. The French media proclaimed it ‘le dunk de la mort‘ or the dunk of death. It was the Olympics in Sydney and Team USA was playing France. A lazy outlet pass was stolen by Vincent Lamar Carter (6’6″ / 1.98m), and the only thing between him and an easy two points was Frédéric Weis (7’2″ / 2.18m). In a split-second decision, Carter decided that a straight path to the basket was his best course of action.
He proceeded to jump over Weis, completing the greatest in-game dunk of all time. Despite winning a silver medal for his country and playing on four professional Euorleague basketball teams, Frédéric Weis will forever be remembered as that guy that Vince Carter dunked over. RIP
