Terrence Ross Wins Slam Dunk CompetitionPublished by Toronto Mike on February 17, 2013 @ 13:04 in Toronto Raptors
Following the Leafs 3-0 over the Sens, I got sucked into watching the NBA all-star competitions. I had a rooting interest with Raptor rookie Terrence Ross in the slam dunk competition, so I got into it.
Ross won becoming the second Raptor to do so following Vince Carter's win in 2000. Ross actually paid tribute to Vince with his first dunk in the finals last night.
Then, he sealed the deal using a young boy as a convenient prop.
Full points to Ross for the win, but I miss the good old days when props weren't part of every second dunk and it was just an athletic dunker and his creativity. Birthday boy Michael Jordan, FTW!
