Can Bruno Caboclo Bring Slam Dunk Contest Glory To Raptors?

Toronto Raptors first round draft pick Bruno Caboclo was described as being “two years away from being two years away” as he walked to the stage on draft night, but just maybe somebody should have waited to see the highlight reels, this kid can fly.

The Raptors have a long (for them) and storied history of NBA Slam Dunk contest participants and winners. From the best-of-the-best Vince Carter to DeMar DeRozan and Terrence Ross, the NBA has done well sending players to All-Star weekend from Toronto to represent the league in this high-flying spectacle.
