Will Moon shine?

It was 20 years ago Michael Jordan and Dominique Wilkins staged a dunking display for the ages at venerable Chicago Stadium.

As early as 2000, Vince Carter put on a slam show in Oakland that raised Carter's star and helped restore Toronto's profile around the NBA.

It remains to be seen what imprint Jamario Moon will leave when he represents the Raptors at tomorrow's slam-dunk event as part of all-star weekend.

Moon has kept his dunking game plan under close wraps in the leadup to tomorrow, but given his penchant for elevation, fans might be in store for a show worthy of a Carter, Jordan or Wilkins.

Moon's competition will be defending champion Gerard Green, Dwight Howard and Rudy Gay.

Tonight, Moon will take part in the rookie/sophomore game. He's coming off a 15-point night against the Nets on Wednesday when Moon flushed home two dunks.

BOSH BACKS CALDERON

All-star Chris Bosh believes he should have been joined by teammate Jose Calderon in New Orleans.

Based on the numbers Calderon has posted, it's hard to argue with Bosh.

The Spanish sensation has been lights out with his stroke, continues to protect the basketball, but has developed a much-needed swagger that will serve Calderon well as he evolves as a point guard.

"It's too bad he missed out on the all-star game,'' Bosh said. "I think he was overlooked.

"He's giving us a lot right now and he just has to continue working, playing with confidence. We're going to go as he goes."

In his past two games, Calderon has averaged 24.5 points and shot a sizzling .724 from the field.
