Let Ross Dunk – Take 8

I have no idea whether this is really the eighth highlight reel dunk of the season from Terrence Ross. Maybe it’s only the seventh, or maybe it’s the 12th. I don’t care. All I know is that the 21-year-old rookie swingman HAS to be invited to the 2013 Slam Dunk Contest, and Dwyane Wade and the Heat can probably second that after this jam, which just happened to be his second big dunk of the night against the defending champs…

Much like the second of his two monster jams against the Magic in December, Ross is able to get out on the break on this play thanks to his active hands on defence.

As his smooth jumper eventually finds consistency and as Ross adapts to the NBA, he will be an impact player for the Raptors going forward. But for now, I think we’re all pretty content to just watch him fly, so long as he continues to do it with “Toronto” draped across his chest.
