    Whoa!! Are you guys all in your 60's?? Why wouldn't you want to see an awesome dunk on a wide open fast break?? Who cares what season he's in?! There's really nothing better than an awesome dunk. I fell asleep when Derozan did his dunk, and then got a huge woody when Ross did his.

    It's simply an acknowledgement that "awesome dunks" doesn't win you games.

    I'd rather see DeRozan improve his outside shooting...

    I don't know if it's grossly overrated, but definitely a bit. His leaping is because as Matt said, he doesn't have explosiveness in that last step. He has very good all around athleticism, where pretty much everything about it is above average, but nothing really sticks out.
    He has really good hang-time.

    Speaking of dunking, is there any truth to this tweet by Chris Palmer of ESPN?

    Dunk Contest: Terrence Ross (@T_DotFlight31); Gerald Green; Paul George; Alonzo Gee (@GeeAlonzo)

    Nice! Hope it's true. Although, I wouldn't really consider George or Gee high flyers. Kinda takes me back to when Larry Hughes was in the dunk contest :|

    Raps must lead the league in dunk contest participants over the past 10-15 years. Carter, McGrady, Moon, DeRozan, and now Ross.

    Prior to that, the consecutive-games-with-a-3-pointer streak was our only claim to fame :|
