Terrance Ross Wins the 2013 Slam Dunk Contest!!!
 
He deserves his own thread. Easily the best dunker we've had since Wince Harder. Kid is a beast, he's gangsta and he's dripping with swag. :D

Hope he's in the Dunk Contest this year.

He actually said (a few months ago I think) that he doesn't want to be in it because he doesn't have the creativity or the props to do it. But Derozan and Calderon are campaigning hard for him to be in it.

Watching Ross throw down sick dunks is one of the reasons why I continue to watch the games.

is it just me.. or it seems that players get more ref calls after the dunk contest??

perhaps i) more fame and therefore more respect from the refs? or ii) ref know you can get up there so if u dun finish, u must have been fouled?


just seems to be that vince carter, t-mac, moon, derozan got to the line much more after entering dunk contest (refs honoring calls i mean)

Man, his demeanor so much reminds me of a young T-mac. He just made an incredible display of athleticism, timing, and co-ordination look completely effortless. Not even a change in facial expressioin. :applause: :pimp:

I agree with Bokes watching t-mac when he was a rookie he had a similar demeanour - effortless yet smooth.

DeRozan still doesn't get any respect from the refs.

Ross Selected For Dunk Comp.

The East's entry includes Ross, the Indiana Pacers' Gerald Green and the New York Knicks' James White. The trio will be pitted against defending champion Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz, along with the Los Angeles Clippers' Eric Bledsoe and the Denver Nuggets' Kenneth Faried.

The only 2 names i'm excited about on that list are T-Ross and James White.

Yeaaahhhhhh BUDDY! :hammertime: always awesome to see a Raptor represented in All-star weekend in some capacity. Maybe we get lucky and Rudy "Big Shot" Gay makes the big game in 2014.

Re: Terrance Ross Selected for the 2013 Slam Dunk Contest!
 
We have two previous contestants in the dunk contest (Rudy + Demar) so Ross should have a good idea of what type of dunks he's gonna pull off.

I won't expect much though; NBA is probably gonna rig it again.

Re: Terrance Ross Selected for the 2013 Slam Dunk Contest!
 
Yeah, while I am excited merely in the fact that he's there and deserves to be there my realistic espectations are that especially under the current format he's gonna lose, maybe not even make the second round. To be a Toronto Raptor, and a rookie and win the NBA dunk contest you pretty much have to be a superstar (not just dunk wise). There's probably plenty of fans who don't even know who Ross is, and i'm sure even his best stuff will get overlooked.
