We’re on a Wired deadline this afternoon, so we’re gonna outro early with a classic hoops clip: a young Vince Carter absolutely posterizing French center/stiff Frédéric Weis. Yes, we realize you’ve seen it before; trust us, it’s worth a second (or tenth) look, if only for the confused expression on Weis’s face at the end of the play. And the French commentators’ reaction is pretty nifty, too.
To be honest, we do feel a bit bad for Weis, who’s name is now synonymous with terrible NBA drafting. According to Weis, it was injuries rather than lack of talent that kept him from pursuing his NBA dreams. We’d be curious to know Vince Carter’s thoughts on the matter.
