Trae Young calls for Vince Carter to be in Dunk Contest

Trae Young wants a fitting send-off for his Atlanta Hawks teammate.

The second-year guard took to Twitter on Monday to call for Vince Carter to be included in this year’s Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend.

Carter, who turns 43 years old later this month, is in his final NBA season and seems all but certain to be a special addition to the All-Star team like Dwyane Wade and Dirk Nowitzki were last season. This year also marks the 20-year anniversary of Carter’s iconic performance in the 2000 Dunk Contest, and he has proven that he can still get up.

Carter would not be the only ex-dunk champion to return this year either, and he is definitely someone the people would want to see for one last hurrah.
