An autistic 17-year old got a surprise from Ellen DeGeneres with the help of the Toronto Raptors.

The Ultimate Vince Carter Mixtape

Today, the NBA released the Ultimate Raptors Vince Carter Mixtape on their YouTube channel highlighting VC's freakish dunking ability during his tenure as a Toronto Raptor. We've all seen the dunks before but the NBA packed it all nicely into one 4.5 minute highlight pack.

With the NBA All-Star Weekend coming up in Toronto, it will be interesting to see if Vince is involved in the All-Star festivities - - possibly as a judge in the dunk contest? We'll soon find out.

Anyhow, enjoy the 4:39 of dunking goodness.
