In case you missed the NBA Slam Dunk Contest, or just didn’t care, here’s a video recapping Terrence’s dunks. There happens to be a nice little twist though. Using a Phantom camera, they put all of his dunks in super sl0w-mo, which I think helps you appreciate the skill it takes to pull some of these off.

I wasn’t really feeling the D Rose 3 by adidas until I saw this colorway.
