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