The Victory Formation:
Cute kid alert! Cute kid alert! A young Raptors fan participated in slam dunk contest during a Toronto Raptors game, and went behind the back before slamming the ball home. But that wasn’t the best part, it was the showmanship that is always needed in these contests. Terrence Ross, the 2013 Sprite Slame Dunk Champ from last weekend’s All-Star activities should take pointers moving forward when he attempts to defend his crown next year. This kid played the crowd, perfectly. H/T BDL

Andrea Bargnani and the Raptors both appear to prefer moving on at this point.
Rudy Gay and Carmelo Anthony matched each other basket for basket in what first looked to be a high scoring game, tied 32-32 after the 1st quarter. Ironically, both Rudy & Carmelo ended the game with 32 points each (including 17 for Rudy in the 3rd quarter alone!), but in the dying moments the Raptors capitalized on what appeared to be mental lapse by the Knickerbockers. With...

Growing up watching the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk contest was a privilege. I understand that now after watching the garbage we have seen over the last few years.
While the contest still pulls in solid viewing numbers, All-Star weekend and the Slam Dunk Contest could be so much more.
