Vince Carter became Canadian Public Enemy #1 when he essentially quit on the Raptors and forced a trade to New Jersey in 2004. So when he returned to Toronto for the first time after the trade, the crowd gave him a welcome as warm as an Ontario winter. This fan-shot video shows Vince getting booed mercilessly at EVERY opportunity including introductions and at tipoff. Hell, these people ride him just for getting a rebound during pre-game layup lines. Canadians, they're FAN-tastic, eh?
It' a scary thought that today' young NBA fans may only know Michael Jordan as "that guy who wears Hanes underwear with Kevin Bacon." Even for those of us who grew up watching (hating?) those great Bulls teams of the '90s, it' probably easier to remember the smiley, highly visible MJ of the "Be Like Mike" era than the vicious young freak who came into the League with the cruel intention of dunking on EVERYONE IN SIGHT. This collection of Jordan' 10 best dunks is a chilling reminder of what once was.
LeBron James needs shooters to spread the floor, but what happens when Donyell Marshall and Damon Jones both want to take the 3-ball out for a date at the same time on the same night? This silly animated clip is like Cavs basketball meets Three' Company, with D-Jones inheriting Don Knotts' wardrobe.
The only Pistons starter not to make the All-Star team last year may actually be their best all-around player. Tayshaun Prince is a terror on D, a great finisher on the break, and a deceptively good shooter, as shown in this goose-bumps-inducing video from his college days at Kentucky. Prince opens a game against North Carolina making UK' first five shots, all from long range, the last of which he nails from just a few steps inside half court. It' video documentation of a guy entering the zone.
