Though many years removed from his glory days, it seems Vince Carter — the man once dubbed “half-man, half-amazing” — can still leave fans in awe.

When a lucky young fan received an autograph from the former Raptors superstar before the Memphis Grizzlies’ home game versus the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night, the kid walked away from the encounter with a priceless reaction.

If that look of amazement seems familiar, you likely haven’t forgotten about Hall-of-Fame centre Shaquille O’Neal’s classic reaction to Carter’s jaw-dropping dunk at the 2000 Slam Dunk Contest.
