Vince Carter Leaps Over 7-Foot-2 French Center Frederic Weis at 2000 Olympic Games (Video)

Editor’s note: The 2011-12 NBA season was supposed to tip off Nov. 1. With no games to watch, NESN.com will help fill the void by posting a dunk video every day until the lockout ends.

The USA men’s basketball team did not lose a single game in its quest for the gold medal at the 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney. It’s not difficult to see why with a cast that included Jason Kidd, Kevin Garnett and Vince Carter in the primes of their careers.

Carter displayed his dunking prowess during a game against France. After stealing the ball, Carter ran full speed toward the basket on the left side of the paint. There was just one problem: 7-foot-2-inch Frederic Weis was standing in his way.

That didn’t stop Carter from posterizing Weis for perhaps the most electric dunk of the Games.

Check out the dunk in the video below.
