“At one point, yes,” Carter admitted when asked if he used to hate being asked only about his dunking exploits. “I don’t want to use the word insecure, but as you said, I have more to me than just that. And then as you grow older, there are just some things you can’t get away from. And that’s just it. I tell you what. My alarm, my calendar come All-Star weekend, come the Olympics. I don’t even have to tell you. You get it. Just by me saying that. I know what comes with it. I know my Twitter is going to blow up because of the All-Star Game or because of the Olympics. I get it. It’s just a part of me.
The wild thing about this play? Other than the fact that Carter jumped over a 7-footer in the middle of a game? Vince didn’t know he did it. He had no clue he had cleared Weis completely. He wouldn’t learn that he jumped over Weis until after the game when one of Gary Payton’s friends showed him on a camcorder he had in the stands. This was before YouTube, which would be created five years later. This was well before MySpace (2003), Facebook (2004) or Twitter (2006). The iPhone wouldn’t be unveiled for another seven years, and even the Motorola RAZR was four years away. There just wasn’t a place to go watch this dunk immediately after it happened. He needed The Glove’s friend and his camcorder for that moment. “I literally watched it seven times in awe of myself,” Carter admits. “I didn’t think that could happen.”
