Terrence Ross says Kevin Garnett NBA’s best pick-setter ‘because he sets illegal screens but he never gets caught,’ wants Nets in playoffs
Mar 19, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT
Maybe Garnett will fight him. Ross is a guard.

Terrence Ross has won a Dunk Contest. He scored 51 points in a game. He starts for the Eastern Conference’s third-best team. But he still has to take out the trash when he goes to his mom’s house. Raptors.com interviewed Ross with his mom, Marcine Ross, when Toronto played in his hometown of Portland last…

BOSTON – Former Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo appeared as part of the basketball analytics panel at the 2014 MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference on Friday, and as part of a discussion about revamping the draft lottery system, shared an story about how he tried to “tank” in one of his final seasons in Toronto,…

NEW ORLEANS – John Wall‘s final dunk of the night won the 2014 Slam Dunk Contest for the team representing the Eastern Conference, but the drastic format changes to the event, and not any of its dunks, are what will be remembered most from this year’s All-Star Saturday showcase. “I think it was cool,” Wall…

All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

It’s been 14 years since the Slam Dunk Contest has featured multiple All-Stars. Heck, in the last two years, no All-Stars have participated. But after years of pleas, the NBA has finally assembled a Dunk Contest field that includes the game’s top talent. Paul George, Damian Lillard and John Wall headline the 2014 event –…

A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…

If all of us — red state, blue state, regardless of religion or skin color — could come together and agree on just two things they would be: 1) Kevin Durant’s new puppy is really cute. 2) The NBA All-Star Saturday Dunk Contest needed some life injected into it. The NBA has heard you on…

We let you know last night that Damian Lillard said he was in for the dunk contest (and maybe much more). He’s not the only star. Multiple reports (including Yahoo, CSNWashington.com and ESPN) have given us what we expect to be the six-man dunk contest field: Paul George (Indiana Pacers) Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)…

That. Is. A. Dunk. The Raptors’ Terrence Ross got a steal and was off in transition. To his credit, Denver’s Kenneth Faried got back and went for the block. He ended up in Terrence Ross’ poster. One of the dunks of the year.
Jan 26, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT
Terrence Ross tied Vince Carter’s single-game Toronto Raptors scoring record with 51 points against the Los Angeles Clippers last night. Wait. Terrence Ross? The same Terrence Ross who went more than three weeks earlier this season without scoring 51 combined points? The same Terrence Ross who had scored fewer points than J.J. Redick this season…
Defending dunk-contest champion Terrence Ross names his desired challengers: Tony Mitchell, Andre Drummond and Victor Oladipo
Jan 25, 2014, 9:30 PM EDT
If Paul George can stump for his desired dunk-contest field – even if he likely has no real intention of participating – the event’s defending champion should have a say, too. The man who can do this probably knows a little something about dunking: So, Terrence Ross, who should join you in the dunk contest…

The Raptors signing of Landry Fields was another swing-and-a-miss by the previous regime. The Raptors are paying him $6.5 million this season and next, while the jack-of-all-trades player has fallen out of the rotation, with Terrence Ross starting and just returned from injury veteran John Salmons taking up the bench minutes. Which is why this…

Technically, the Raptors got Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes for Rudy Gay. But Toronto also got a new spirit. Without the shoot-first, do-little-else Gay, the Raptors have gone 3-1. They’re just clicking a little better. They might be playing with a little more passion, too. Terrence Ross certainly is. Landry Fields…

You knew things would be different with Masai Ujiri in charge in Toronto. For one, there might be a plan. That would be a nice change of pace from the past few years. Whatever that plan is, it could involve a wholesale changeover of the roster. They already moved Andrea Bargnani (to the delight of…
