For only a half season’s worth of basketball, the NBA’s top athletes have put together a strong resume and large volume of impressive slams, so much so that we had to list 100 of them. There weren’t any that had to be forced on, either, to complete the list. No, there were plenty of worthy candidates to make this list go beyond the threshold of 100. Read More »

Video: Terrence Ross Posterizes Kenneth Faried

Terrence Ross, Kenneth Faried

This was so sick that we had no choice but to turn poster into a verb. Terrence Ross is feeling it right now, and this isn’t even the first dunk of his we’re showing within the last 24 hours. He showed off a pretty nasy eastbay dunk while practicing for what appears to be a Dunk Contest invite. But this hammer on Kenneth Faried during Toronto’s big road win in Denver was something special. Read More »

The NBA will officially announce who will participate in the 2014 Slam Dunk Contest over All-Star weekend in New Orleans next week, but we’re pretty sure Terrence Ross will get an invite. That’s because the second-year Raptors forward — less than a week after dropping an “awww”-inducing 51 points — already has a dunk coach, and from the looks of their dunk practice, he is going to be do his best to keep the annual contest from continuing its slide as the most overhyped contest of the weekend.

Terrence Ross was averaging under 10 PPG in his sophomore season with the Raptors entering Saturday night’s game against the visiting Clippers. That’s what makes his 51-point explosion so crazy. Nobody could have predicted he’d be the next NBA player to crack the 50-point plateau so soon after Melo‘s big night. But Ross commemorated his career night by giving a special present to his mom.

In the modern NBA dunk contest we rarely get to see who we truly want. We saw legendary performances in the past, from showdowns between Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins in the 1980s to Nate Robinson and Dwight Howard in the late 2000s. For a while now though, the NBA dunk contest has been lacking something: star power. Read More »
