Apparently the kid he jumped over was the son of the owner of Twitter :P
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.
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

Raptors fan since day 1.
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.
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.
