HOUSTON, TEX. - No Raptor has been able to live up to the long shadow cast by Vince Carter, but for one night in Texas, Terrence Ross did his best.

At the 2013 slam dunk contest, the Raptors rookie honoured the brightest star the franchise has known, throwing down a spectacular jam to open the finals while wearing a vintage replica of the jersey Carter wore in Oakland back in 2000.

  Yes, new GM made great moves
  No, they will still be a terrible team
  Unsure what to make of it
