The 2013 NBA Slam Dunk contest featured several high fliers. While most folks may not have heard of the players before the showcase, several made names for themselves with unreal dunks that did not need too many gimmicks.
Gerald Green began the fun with a behind-the-black slam that garnered a perfect-50 to get it all going. However, his brick in Round 2 opened the door for a few other guys.
Jeremy Evans, the defending Slam Dunk champ, actually dunked over a painting of himself dunking, earning the most stylish dunk of the night.
However, at the end of the day, Evans’ theatrics were no match for Terrance Ross’ superstar 360 windmill dunk from a pass off the backboard.
If you had not heard of Ross before Saturday night, the dude made sure you knew of him afterwards.
