Considering Terrence Ross won the 2013 Sprite Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend by jumping over a child, it seems only fitting that a child should offer us a very cool remix of perhaps the Toronto Raptors rookie's most picturesque competition dunk. And the jersey reveal, a la Ross ripping off his warmup to showcase a purple Vince Carter throwback, really ties the whole piece together nicely.
And hey, since Ross reportedly doesn't want to enter the Slam Dunk Contest again, maybe we can see young Tyler showcase his talents at next year's All-Star Saturday Night. Something tells me fans will have a hard time complaining about the lack of recognizable names in the competition if the contestants are all adorable children. Besides, as our pals The Basketball Jones have definitively proven in the past, little kid dunk contests are always awesome.
