2. Vince Carter wins the NBA Slam Dunk competition
Do I really need to say much about this one? I think the video above says it all.
Although this was more about Carter than the Raptors, it will forever be an iconic moment in Toronto Raptors history. The dunk contest electrified the NBA world, the Raptors’ fan base, and to be frank, the entire city of Toronto.
VC, Vinsanity, Air Canada – call him what you like – gave basketball fans south of the border a reason to watch the Raptors on a nightly basis, as the Raptors emerged as a threat in the Eastern Conference.
