    Clarence Weatherspoon, Brent Barry and Kenny Smith also did off the top of my head...
    I had to double check...Imagine my surprise that Kenny has been in 3 dunk contests, and of course, never won any of them. I knew he could dunk, but well enough to impress??? Maybe that's why he likes props, because he couldn't win with skills.

    As for Weatherspoon....I though that one had to be wrong, and it is. Weatherspoon has never been in a 3pt shootout.

    I double checked this from their sources, but the wiki pages are just easier to read.

    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.
    Ugh. Watch the locker room interview he had after the entire event.

    Seriously, Ross seemed so happy to win it for Toronto, and so grateful to TO fans for helping in pushing him to do it.

    Still though, I can't think of a more dominant dunk contest than Vince's. Every dunk he did made it look like every other person was just clearly not on his level.

    *I only think of it because I think Ross 1st and 3rd dunks, at least, were on that level....really a shame he didn't knock that first one down on his first, powerful, attempt.

    I suppose you are correct sir, I don't know why but I was certain he had been in both...

    Btw, i thought James White's freethrow line was so underrated. I'm surprised he only got 45 from the judges. I mean, the choreography was awesome, he still got some serious hangtime and it was just a great dunk.

    As for his 2nd dunk, the guy just cannot dribble a basketball. He kept losing his dribble, it was embarassing to see

    I had to google who James White was. Asked my Knicks loving friend about him and he couldn't even say much.

    He does have crazy hops, but he's got bad hands. Even if you find some old dunk contest footage of his, he tries to do a lot of ft line dunks with different variations. He misses a lot of attempts. When he makes them it's impressive though.

    Anyways, Ross winning was awesome. Drake and KG's reaction to the last dunk, twitter exploding and his cause (dunk cancer) made it feel so big. Like, I can't remember the last time I was genuinely excited much less feeling the dunk contest. When Ross won I was cheering in the living room with my wife and daughter. It was awesome.

    Unlike a lot of the recent dunk contest winners I can see Ross being a player too. Toronto is live right now.

    Made this Desktop Wallpaper in honor of Ross winning the dunk contest! (Please be aware this is only my 3rd or 4th wallpaper ever made, I am an amateur) So be nice and let me know what you think!

    LOL I woke my girlfriend up cheering after Ross won. She was home from a long days work and tried to stay awake for it. Actually I kept jabbing at her to wake up to watch it. Lol I'm gonna have to make it up to her for real. Great performance by him. I was worried after he missed the first 4 tries.

    this just makes it look like Toronto has a image problem. looking for every person with an attachment to say thank you or mention Toronto at every chance they get is silly.

    I think the homage to Vince was a great idea. not that the shirt made the dunk. I think a meaningful positive moment of memory of Vince was something to help the franchise move forward.

    still hate Vince but a good moment for the team and props to Ross for doing it.

    Take off the name and posterization effect and it would be a lot better.

    So glad Ross won the dunk contest... and with barely any props. Jumped over a kid for one and that's it, I believe. Disappointing showings for the West though, lol. Faried and Bledsoe were unspectacular and Evans just really likes jumping over things, I guess, haha.
