Remember when Vince Carter dunked over Fredric Weis at the 2000 Olympics? Well, it would've netted Vince $1 million had he been able to do something similar to China's Yao Ming.


In an interview with Yahoo Sports' Alex Wong, former All-NBA forward and current TNT analyst Kevin Garnett revealed that the team had a $1 million bounty for any body who could put the 7-foot-6 Yao on a poster.

"First of all, people didn't know, we had a bounty out on Yao Ming. The whole USA team had a bet. We had a million dollar bet on who was going to be the first person to dunk on Yao Ming. None of us did. We all tried to dunk on Yao, but he would block it or we would miss. So, the first thing I thought of when I saw Vince dunk over Frederic was oh sh*t, you won the million dollars. But then I realized it obviously wasn't Yao. I pushed Vince, and if you look at the clip, he almost punches me in the face by accident. But my first thought was, oh sh*t, you won, you got the million."

While VC didn't win the million, he did help Team USA win gold in Sydney and his dunk will forever live on as one of the greatest posterizations in basketball history (and the closest thing we will ever see to murder on a basketball court).


Half-man. Half-amazing.
