While Donald Trump’s election to the White House has left many feeling uncertain about the future, in the NBA, some things never seem to change.

Vince Carter recently dazzled with a pre-game routine before his Grizzlies took on the New Orleans pelicans, proving the 40-year-old is still “half man-half amazing.” Now the former Toronto Raptor’s otherworldly skills have been honoured with a ‘dunk-on-Trump’ t-shirt, designed by sports writer Dan Carson.

The shirt is a play on the iconic image of Carter leaping over Frederic Weis to dunk during the 2000 Olympics.


In case you have forgotten how vicious that 2000 dunk was:


Carter also won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest in the same year.

Carson sent Carter one of his creations and it’s safe to say the 19-year NBA veteran approves. In a video posted to Twitter, Carter said, “I’ll definitely wear it. Probably bring out some controversy, but it’s all worth it.”


While Raptors fans may have been disappointed when Carter left for the New Jersey Nets in 2004, Carson appears to be pretty overwhelmed by the personal response to the t-shirt.
