For those not familiar with Reddit or AMAs, its an acronym for "Ask Me Anything" and its a great way for an athlete or a celebrity to talk to his or her fans directly and in a community setting. Patrick Maroon Oilers Jersey . While the hour to ask Terrence a question has come and gone, weve curated some of the highlights both in text and video form for you here on BarDown. Terrence offered proof of life early on via Twitter and the questions came rolling in. Proof that its me http://t.co/7odDVooQIc pic.twitter.com/Me4MPTvueL — Terrence Ross (@T_DotFlight31) March 13, 2014 T-Ross didnt duck any of the tough questions, including pouring in 50, posterizing the Manimal as well as Vinsanitys legacy in Toronto. He even showed a lot of love for the Laker dynasty in picking his "NBA Mount Rushmore". Let the questions begin! 3:10 pm from TheSimonToUrGarfunkl Cabbie also talked to Terrence Ross on FaceTime. Hey T, big fan here! Many players seem to dread getting drafted by the Raptors but end up falling in love with the culture and the city. How has your perception of the city of Toronto and the franchise changed since you were drafted? Was it more than you expected or maybe less than you expected in terms of the city? Toronto is a lot bigger and a lot more diverse than I thought. I didnt know how great our fans would be since I thought Toronto was a hockey city, but the fan support is unreal. 3:16 pm from dspm90 Who do you think is best at setting picks in the NBA, and why is it Amir Johnson? Best at setting picks is Kevin Garnett because he sets illegal screens but he never gets caught. Hell literally hold you and you cant get around him. 3:20pm from macaroniandgainz If you could play a pickup game of 2-on-2 with any NBA player (past or present) who would it be? and, how did it feel to score 51 points in only your second year in the NBA? Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron and me. The 51-pt game felt like a pickup game. It felt like we were just playing for fun with a bunch of pros and we were going bucket for bucket. It was the kind of game that people dont usually get to see, but this time it happened during the season. ...I thought the franchise high was 56 so I didnt think I could get there. If I knew it was 51, maybe I wouldve pushed for it. 3:23 from drthurgood What was the first thing that popped into your head when you were drafted by Toronto? I was happy that I [was] drafted at the eighth pick, and I really to didnt know what to expect. Except I looked good in my bow tie. 3:26 from BJ_Dangle What was going through your mind when you were about to destroy Kenneth Faried? I didnt think it would look as good as it did. I kinda thought I dunked to the side of him but it happened so fast. I didnt know how good it looked until I saw the photo. From my teammates perspective it was pretty cool too. 3:27 from Whatda... Have you ever had a moment of being "star struck" in the NBA? Guarding Kobe. I had to guard him, it was in Toronto, and in my head I was like, "OMG Im guarding Kobe" and as soon as I thought that he put up a 3. It was deep too. 3:28 from Praise_Yeezus What has happened this season that has led to your improvement? Probably the off-season last year and I think the Rudy Gay trade. 3:34 from insurgent29 Were you a Vince Carter fan growing up? Vince Carter is my favourite dunker growing up. He is the sole reason I ever knew about Toronto Raptors as a kid. 3:39pm from Termis Who do you want as a first round matchup in the playoffs? I want Brooklyn, personally. 3:41 from ddaylewis Who talks on D? Who is the most vocal and who calls out the opposing teams plays? Kyle Lowry. Always. Before every play I ask him: Yo, what they running?. Usually the team comes down the court, Lowry will recognize the play and call out what theyre doing. ... Hes the smartest guy on the team. He makes the biggest impact on the games. 3:43 from TaeyanGdragon Do you play video games such as NBA2k? if not, what is your favorite video game? and if so, how do you feel about how they rate you as a player? I play every video game! I have two XBox 360s, an XBox 1, and a PlayStation 4. For my rating, as long as I can shoot and dunk, thats all you really need in a video game. 3:45 from maffyou Did you prepare dunks for the dunk contest that you were not able to perform? If so, would you be willing to show us? Yes there were two dunks I wanted to do but never got a chance to. Maybe Ill do them in warm ups... 3:48 from DoubleONine Are you as sick of this stupid winter as I am? YES! Im over this winter. I just want the sun to melt all the snow, and I would love if it could just hurry up and be summer, but lots of ball to play before then. 3:48 from jbarmel How does it feel playing on the Raptors organization and representing all of Canada in the NBA? Do you ever travel aroud Canada and get acknolwedged and lots of fan support outside of Toronto or Ontario a lot? Also, Who is the biggest sneaker head on the Raps?! Its an honour because most players just get to play for their city or state, but I get to play for the whole country so its almost like a national team. Ive been to Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver. The biggest sneaker head on the Raps is DeMar. He has every Jordan. Literally, every Jordan. 3:49 from FadeAwayJay When was the first time you dunked? Seventh grade. I was 13 in a travel ball game, and ever since then I fell in love with dunking. 3:51 from therealAce What was it like when you checked in for the first time and heard your name announced? The first time I checked in it was unreal. It was like a dream and its surreal being in that position after growing up watching the NBA. 3:52 from blakerose Would you like to see the Raps logo go to a throwback purple style? A black and gold Drake style? Or something else altogether? I wanna go back to the purple on the front and the black on the back. I like the two tone jerseys. 3:58 from davidkones What are some of the songs you listen to before a game to pump yourself up? I listen to School Boy Q. I listen to his whole album. I listen to A$AP Rocky... and Rush for all my Canadian fans. 4:01 from BulbyBlast Hey Terrence, do you think they should retire Vince Carters jersey in Toronto? Honestly, YES! They should retire his jersey simply because he put Toronto on the map. He did a lot for this city and this franchise, so STOP BOOING HIM! 4:09 from gabliva Two questions 1. How much fun is it hanging out with amir? I can only imagine its hours of fun! 2. On a scale of Mugsy Bouges to Vince carter how excited are you to wear the throwback jerseys next year? Amir is like a little kid ... No... Like a big kid! He is always doing something crazy. On the scale... Charles Oakley! 4:18 from dominator39 1) Did you think the team was going to improve after trading Rudy? 2) What is your favourite movie? 3) How is as Jonas Valanciunas outside of the basketball court? 1) Ya, I knew we were gonna play like scrappy, fight til the end type basketball. 2) "He Got Game". 3) Hes very European. Hes quirky. 4:19 from AndySmalls DO YOU OWN A PAIR OF SKATES YET!?!?!? I dont own skates. Ive skated once when I was 14. I did not get the hang of it and never put skates on again after that. Rollerblading I can do no problem though. Andrej Sekera Oilers Jersey .C. -- Authorities say the brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been shot and killed outside a South Carolina nightclub. Mark Letestu Jersey . After deputy commissioner Bill Daly said the league would consider pulling out of Sochi if something "significant" happens before players arrive, those set to participate are trying not to worry about that scenario. http://www.oilershockeypro.com/authentic-nail-yakupov-oilers-jersey/ .J. -- Rampage Jackson scowled, howled, then bellowed to the crowd: "Im back! Im back!" With rebuilt knees and a new promotion, Jackson might have one more act left in MMA.ST. LOUIS - Martin Brodeur may one day return to the New Jersey Devils, where he won three Stanley Cups and cemented his place as the goaltender with more wins than any other in NHL history.Up first, though, is some serious time with the St. Louis Blues.The 42-year-old Brodeur formally announced his retirement Thursday to take a front-office position with St. Louis, where he wrapped up his career after 21 outstanding years with the Devils. He said he is leaving the game with a smile on his face and excited about his next opportunity.Im leaving the game really, really happy, Brodeur said.Brodeur joined the Blues as a free agent in early December after No. 1 goaltender Brian Elliott was sidelined by a knee injury. He went 3-3 with a 2.87 goals-against average and .899 save percentage. He extended his NHL record for shutouts to 125 with a 3-0 win against Colorado on Dec. 29, his final NHL victory.When Elliott returned, Brodeur became the odd man out among the teams three goalies, including Jake Allen. He took a leave of absence to contemplate his future and word came Tuesday that he was done.If Ells (Elliott) didnt get hurt, I was never going to be here, Brodeur said. For me it was a great opportunity.Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said the team was excited to have Brodeur join the team as a senior adviser.Hes going to travel with the team on a daily basis, hes going to interact with our players and our coaches, Armstrong said. Our goals are very simple in St. Louis with this team, its to prepare and be competitive to win a Stanley Cup and to ultimately win a Stanley Cup. When I look up here and you see the number of Stanley Cups up here on this stage, all these people we can tap into as we learn and we move forward.Over 22 seasons, Brodeur piled up a 691-397-176 record, 2.24 GAA and .912 save percentage in 1,266 career regular-season games. The native of Montreal holds the league records ffor wins, shutouts, games played and minutes played. Mark Messier Jersey. He also had 113 career postseason victories to go along with those three Cups and four Vezina Trophies as the NHLs top goaltender.Asked what he was most proud of, Brodeur cited the wins — and his health.If you play hockey, you might as well win, he said. The most important record is the wins record that I have. My durability is just something I took a lot of pride in, that I was able to play 70 games over and over and over and they add up to 1,200-and-something games, plus the playoff games, plus whatever. Its hard to do.Brodeur said he planned to learn as much as he can as a front-office employee with the possibility of one day running a team.He also said the possibility exists that he will return to New Jersey in a front-office role at some point in the future. He said he has talked with Lou Lamoriello, the Devils president/general manager, about returning to New Jersey.We talked and he knows that eventually were going to cross paths again, if its next year, in two years, in three years, I cant answer, Brodeur said. Im doing this now as a St. Louis Blue and I want to learn as much as I can and well see where thats going to bring me. I might not like this. I might just go and say playing golf every day looks a lot better than doing this. Ill make a decision on my future whenever it comes around. Right now Im just going to go all in on this. Not that I needed the blessing of Lou, but he understands it.Brodeur made it clear how important his years with the Devils mean to him.For me, my hockey career is all about the Devils, Brodeur said. Nobodys going to associate me with the Blues as a hockey player and a retirement arrangement will be made for New Jersey in the future. It could be this year. It could be next year. I dont know whats Lous plan. Im so appreciative with all the fans, what the organization did for me.
