Terrence Ross pulled out the Vince Carter Raptors throwback jersey, then did a throwback Vince Carter dunk. Then he did a not-very-far throwback dunk of Torontos DeMar DeRozan. Then he dunked over a kid. All the while Torontos own Drake was jumping around in the first row like a giddy 12-year-old boy.
It all worked. The Raptors Terrence Ross is your 2013 NBA All-Star Dunk Contest champion.
I think its paying homage to the guys who did this before me, Ross said. DeMar has been here before, tried to take his advice and honor him.
Lets be honest this wasnt a great dunk contest, maybe not even a good one. Ross shouldnt have even been in the finals he got a pretty generous perfect score on his first dunk after a few misses. Still the night it had its moments and Ross had enough of them.

Crowder had a couple noteworthy moments on Twitter this past season. The first was when he fired back at Celtics fans after the TD Garden cheered for Jazz forward Gordon Hayward. He also exchanged comments with Devin Booker after the Suns guard's 70-point game against the Celtics
