08:05 AM ET 02.18 | Raptors rookie Terrence Ross already has someone eager to challenger his slam-dunk crown. Pistons rookie Andre Drummond tossed his hat into the ring Friday morning, saying he was hoping to compete in the dunk contest this season before a stress fracture in his lower back ended that dream. "That was my goal to be in the dunk contest," Drummond said. "I can't really do that now, so hopefully next year." Ross won the slam-dunk title Saturday night as part of the NBA's All-Star weekend. Drummond watched from courtside. It isn't clear whether Drummond would have gotten an invite this season, so a little public lobbying can't hurt. Drummond, 19, would probably be a formidable contestant since he has a little flavor when attacking the rim.
