Tonight is the NBA Slam Dunk Contest and you cannot discuss the competition without bringing up Vince Carter's elbow dunk.

During today's game against Tulane, Memphis' Shaq Goodwin utilized a fastbreak opportunity to pay homage to one of the best Slam Dunk Contest moments of all-time. Of course, Goodwin's elbow dunk wasn't praised by everyone.

Shaq received a technical for his efforts.
