    Ummm, James White sucked lard. Loving his first dunk, not (wishing one of the stewardesses stuck their foot out to trip him). Also, Nick Cannon reminds me of the wack MCs that won't let go of the mic at the house parties I used to attend back in the day in Scarborough.
    LOL leave little nicky boy alone..these are the only times hes allowed out other then to pick up tampons for mariah LOL

    as for white, he should have had the bolt runn the sidelines for him, maybe it would have motivated him to finnish the race! LOL

    Somebody asked chuck who he thought won and he says "I don't know his name the guy who dunked last".
    Shaq said that as a joke. Overall it was pretty rough to watch the contest. The middle was just painful with the 10 million attempts. That idiotic Evans painting idea was just the worst.

    Apparently this dunk contest might have been rigged as well. Not as bad as the Griffin travesty though. Nick Cannon was just handed a printout of voting results before the voting ended :P

    Oh, NBA... *sigh
    Don't hate me because I'm an optimist.

    I noticed that too :P I was expecting another commercial break after the voting ended for them to add the votes up, print it out, put it in an envelope and then proceed to give it to Nick Cannon. But apparently all of this was done before the voting even started...

    the most impressive thing about that dunk contest was how unprofessional chuck was. I didn't find any of his jokes, and his negative attitude funny at all.
    I thought it was hilarious

    Funny thing about Ross is, Raps drafted him because of his 3pt shooting. Now he's the slam dunk champ. Crazy!!

    Next year we should start a #LetRossShoot campaign! or #LetRossPlay because i want to see him in the Team Shaq, Team Chuck game!

    Chuck said Terrence Ross has to work on his jump-shot.

    Goodness, this guy should NEVER broadcast a live event again. Although, he does have a point cause Ross is so inconsistent for a pure shooter.

    Great job by Ross, all his dunks were legit. Especially the one where he put the throwback jersey of VC on. Other then T_Dotflight31 though, I feel like the dunk comp was a bust again.
    Yes, you have the issue with the stars not showing up but I think the main problem about the dunk comp is the format. Not only was it lame,(there were some really nice dunks though) every year the format and rules change, there is no consistency in it. If they can get the format down right and the fans like it that way, then lets make the decision to keep it that way. I don't really think you need the stars to come out if the format is right, though it would be nice to see players like KD or LBJ or DWade throw down.
    I also felt like the TNT announcers gave up on the competition too early, and really didn't hype up the fact that Ross put on the VC jersey or hype up the final round much either. The Saturday night felt low budget especially with the no name bands that performed and the fact that when Nick Cannon was interviewing TRoss you could barely hear him because it was only an in-house mic for the stadium.
    Was it just me or did it feel like the stadium wasn't that crowded tonight and yesterday for the Chuck vs Shaq game? If this was held in Toronto I think all the nights would be sold out and the stadium atmosphere would be insane. #TDotAllStar2015

    Actually, you can tally instant results using preset algorithms -- That's how technology works. They probably tallied it when it was mathematically impossible for Ross to lose. But seriously, do you really believe anything would be rigged in favor of a Raptor? Have you been watching the officials this year? Really? The guy was three of top 10 plays of the night-- definitely not rigged.

    Loved this preview. Included Demar Derozan's underhand alley-oop - in my opinion, the most underrated dunk of all-time - Terrence Ross's in game slams, and VC.

    Man, how we always have had terrific athletes. VC, McGrady, Moon, Derozan, now we have Gay, Ross.

    I agree. Like you said, probably tallied the scores until Ross couldn't lose.

    the rigging would have been for green.. its greens fault the he couldn't finish his dunk.. the fact that they gave him a 50 on his first dunk should have let everyone know they wanted green to win.. they certainly couldn't have allowed evans to win AGAIN after last years fiasco.. one of the worst dunk comps of all time and they hyped this years dunk comp so much.. plus all his dunks this year were pure gimmicks... jump over an old man sitting down and do nothing in the air, just dunk it... two balls (whoa)... jump over a painting and windmill... jump over another person sitting down and do nothing in the air, just dunk it... the guy should not have been there.. they just had to have him there as the reigning champ.. manimal should have went to the finals and someone fucked up and wont be back as a judge next year.

    Ray Allen is an example. Participated in the dunk contest, and three point shootout. Different years though, but still.
    Clarence Weatherspoon, Brent Barry and Kenny Smith also did off the top of my head...

    5 attempts = 50 points?

    I like T.Ross but that doesn't make sense to me.

    He thanked all of his fans, twitter, the nba. DeRozan and Gay.

    There was no love for Toronto, no mention. Even off camera, on twitter.

    I think he'll leave Toronto the first chance he gets.

    +1 with just about everything....such a garbage competition. I think Ross is a fairly good dunker, and if he had made his first one he would've saved the contest for everyone. He basically had one safe dunk, and the rest were all decently impressive....anyone else notice how far he took off on his last one? It was farther than ALL of Evans take-off points, and not only did he jump over someone/something, but put the ball through his legs too. All Ross' dunks had a high level of athleticism and coordination. Green tried to do that but failed. White had athleticism, but clearly no coordination. I actually thought that both Bledsoe and Faried were better dunkers than Evans in style, they just couldn't make them.

    Kenny was in a dunk contest??? He seems like such a garbage judge of dunk contests...and I'll never forgive him for being one of the biggest fans of the prop/gimmick thing

    not to mention Weatherspoon being in a 3pt contest...are you sure about your facts man? Not hating but I would really appreciate some evidence
