    Default Where the DUNKS at?!

    Winning is fun, it's awesome. But you know what's more awesome? Winning with dunks!!

    Considering how athletic our team is (im talking to you DD and TRoss) I can't remember the last time I saw a dunk that made the SC top 10. What's up with THAT?!

    VC side effect...

    Winnings with dunks? What's so awesome here? I don't see much of a difference. My mood will be 'awesome' as long as our guys continue to play their butts off. That's all I'm asking for now.

    Trade amir for jeremy evans. Lowry for Eric bledsoe. And everyone else besides derozan and ross for deandre and blake. Problem solved

    Haha I'm just saying there hasn't been a momentum changing dunk in so long, there was a bunch last year...

    Yeah i know im just playing around. Demar has really called down on the highlight dunks. There's been too many times this year he had a breakaway, im hoping for something big and he does a calm little two hand flush.

    Proof the Raptors, Management, and the Broadcasting crew actively read RR.
    The Baltic Beast is unstoppable!

    I like this, frankly.
    Sign of maturity.
    When we drafted Ross, the first piece of interview footage from that night was a reporter asking what Raptors fans could expect from him, and Ross' replied "highlights".
    And my palm went to my face.
    I've grown to really like Ross, but that response made me worried.
    Call me old, but 2 points is 2 points, and we haven't been winning enough to give a shit about highlights.

    Also, there hasn't exactly been a drought of dunks either.

    He might be trying to save his knees for later in his career. Dunking can really screw them up

    They can underhand shoot the ball in the basket for all I care. All that matters is that the ball goes in. And I'd rather the 3 than a dunk. Those are more game changing.

    Ross was trying so hard to take flight tonight. Fucking bucks players just wouldn't let him, i was pissed. I wanted to see some 360 action and some windmills
    DeMar, JV, and Amir picked up the slack tho. Couple of nice "T.O Hammers"

    Hey you bunch of old farts, get off your mules with all this "I'd rather win than have dunks" false dichotomy. It's the flippin' NBA - we want wins AND great dunks!

    Seriously though, TR and DD have never been able to elevate in traffic. They both need a clear path to the basket. And OP is right - remember those Ross breakaway dunks last year? I don't think I've seen one this year.

    Interesting that the Raps play at a slowish pace, but still manage to feel like they're putting pressure on the D by pushing the ball and jumping into the offence early. This is a BIG difference between Jose and Lowry (uh oh, here it comes!) - Jose would dribble at the top of the key to get everybody set up before running the O, while Lowry mixes it up by sometimes waiting for screens/the play, sometimes attacking immediately off the bounce, and sometimes launching quick early-shot-clock 3's from Bay St. I like it.

    We still have dunks in our games, but I get what he means. We don't see too many flashy dunks anymore with the Raptors. However, I am liking the amount of threes we're making now...

    Amir has had some fantastic mashes this season....don't forget about him. Val has had some good ones too.

    Personally when we start lighting it up from three and the ball is only in a players hand for under 1 second before passing it...that's the best basketball to watch
