Terrence Ross has regularly been wowing us with his athleticism for weeks now, and just last night he threw down one of the nastiest poster dunks of the season.  Unfortunately, it didn’t count.  Just before the would-be victim, Jason Smith, could jump to contest the jam, Amir Johnson held his arm.  The foul was subtle, but the officials caught it and a whistle was blown, negating the dunk and wiping two Raptor points off the board.  It’s a shame that Johnson felt the need to impede Smith’s progress — it’s not like Smith was about to do anything but get destroyed — but it is what it is, and I’m forced to award this POTD to Tayshaun Prince. Honorable mentions to Chris Bosh and Tim Duncan. Dunk rating on the Starbury Nastiness Scale: 7.5/10 2012/13 Daily Poster Stats Throwback Poster of the Day: One of Carmelo Anthony’s many dunks on Theo Ratliff… Too bad Melo’s affinity for dunking disappeared around the same time his cornrows did.  Though he was never a high flyer, Melo used to posterize people on a regular basis.  What happened?  He’s only 28.
