Half-Man, Half-Amazing Planter
In the year 2000, professional basketball player Vince Carter aka Half-Man, Half-Amazing, won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest with three incredible dunks that blew everyone away. Go ahead, YouTube it, you won't regret it.
Up until then, the dunk contest had become such a lackluster dud that they didn't even bother to have it in '98 and '99. My favorite Vince dunk was the one where he jumped up, scooped the ball between his legs in mid-air, and dunked it deep into b-ball history. Now you can relive that moment and bring that energy into your plantlife with this dunk themed planter. This plant pot has three different sides with three different moments from this famous slam dunk.
Vince Carter might not be grabbing super star headlines these days, and is often referenced as the oldest player currently in the NBA. But he was a great big deal around the early 2000s, when he played for the Raptors and basically created the basketball culture in Toronto as we know it today. He is the greatest dunker of all time and by all accounts a really great person. His podcast, Winging It, is a really chill listen.
He holds an interesting place in my heart and in pop culture because he is already a nostalgic figure in basketball history but is also still currently playing and being a great veteran mentor on the Atlanta Hawks. So much of basketball fandom is how everything that happens is both history and magical myth. Vince Carter is one of its heroes.
One of Sissy Moon's largest planters ever, this pot measures a whopping 6.5" wide at the opening and 6.5” tall. It includes a drainage hole and base dish.
