2013 NBA Slam Dunk Contest: Terrence Ross channels Vince Carter

Terrence Ross busts out the Vince Carter jersey and throws down a might fine dunk.

Terrence Ross came out of the East in the first round due to process of elimination, but his first dunk in the championship round was a behind-the-backboard windmill in the throwback Vince Carter 2000 Raptors jersey. His dunk was courtesy of his high school buddy, and fellow Terrence, Terrence Jones.

Like Andre Iguodala before him, just how hard this dunk was to execute is unfathomable to us ground-bound people. Coming from behind the backboard to windmill, and getting some pretty decent extension on that windmill, throwing the ball through with solid authority. This dunk really had everything. Where on earth was this from all the participants in the first round?

This dunk won't have a score — the finals winner is determined by fan vote — but I think this is a 10. Especially by the standards of this year's judges, this dunk was pretty damn flawless. Glad I could watch it.
