POTD(s) 12/30 & 12/31: Vince Carter and DeQuan Jones

Happy New Year, loyal readers!  On the first day of 2013, I present to you the final POTDs of 2012.  Let us begin with Vince Carter, who turns 36 years old in a couple of weeks.  You’d never know it by the looks of this jam…

I was never a fan of VC’s motorcycle celebration, but over the past few seasons I think I’ve come to like it.  These days, I appreciate a Half Man slam far too much to quibble over such things as post-dunk antics.  Rev that bike, Vince!

7/10

For New Year’s Eve, Orlando Magic rookie DeQuan Jones gets the nod.  Jones went unselected in last summer’s draft, but he got the better of perennial All-Star Chris Bosh on this particular play.  As if he were a running back, watch DeQuan collect the handoff and toast Udonis Haslem with an abrupt cutback.  With the help of a nice block from Nikola Vucevic, he takes it all the way to the house…

Honorable mention to Hakim Warrick, who made a big play in an interesting game.  I nearly gave Warrick the honors, but a Marco Belinelli reach doesn’t exactly constitute the type of defensive effort that makes for a winning poster dunk in my humble opinion.  Sorry, Hak.
