Figure it out
For a guy as athletic as he is, I don't recall Derozan being that great of an in-game dunker. There isn't much flair to it, he just goes about his business. Ross on the other hand knows how to play up the crowd.
Its a sad season when your best dunk has come from a 7" Lithuanian haha, When JV gave it to Bogut on the spin then slam!
I hate the "TO hammer" that Devlin keeps saying. Thats the best he can come up with...geez.
There's nothing wrong with being flashy if you're winning and playing good basketball at the same time. You're basically giving your fans, who pay to attend games, a good show. It's different if you're a scrub who plays garbage minutes and decide to windmill jam when no one is trying any more. Cause for face palm would be when you're on one of the worse teams in the league, currently losing to the opposing team, and decide to show off with a self alleyoop jam (a la the great Javale Mcgee
The dunk is just two points. Waaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy over rated. Bob Cousy never had a dunk and he did OK.
Dunk are good to suck the life of out the other team, hype up the home crowd, or to shut the away crowd up. But fuck are they fun to watch
I love a good dunk, but when they swing the ball around for that extra pass or two for a wide open look, that's what gets me going.
Gay was a nice dunker but the team was un-watchable, keep your dunks give me W's.
The dunk is typically overrated but I'd like to see Tross get out on the break and attack a bit more, lately after a steal he kind of just ambles off to the three point line or just cruises up court waiting for Lowry. Nothing more explosive than a TRoss dunk on the break!
And over jumping for a rebound can only be a good thing.
After watching DD play passively and without fire game in and game out for years. Seeing Ross take an opportunity and be so focused and energized on D that he is a major part of getting the team going defensively....I think DD needs to be a bit more like Ross if you ask me.
Raps for years have been lacking an identity with DD...suddenly with other players having larger roles (Lowry, Val, Ross, Amir)...the team is starting to have one. This is not a coincidence if you ask me. DD is a passive personality that is dictated by the people he is around.
I'm happy with Wins. Threes and great passing are secondary, which contribute mostly to winning. Dunks are fun, but I'm not dying to see them when I tune in to a game
