DeRozan to Dunk After All
They’re feeding us some story about how Brandon Jennings is too injured to participate in the potential disaster that will be the 2011 Slam Dunk Contest, but I would like to think that someone in charge in the NBA offices– maybe even David Stern himself– has a good head on his or her shoulders and righted an immense wrong by replacing Jennings with DeMar DeRozan on the contest roster. Whatever the reason is, I’m just glad we’ll have a known commodity on All-Star Saturday Night instead of a bunch of question marks.
You shouldn’t be unfamiliar with DeRozan’s work, but have a look at the below video in case you are. Nice of the NBA to get that uploaded to their YouTube channel on the day the news dropped. I’m sure we’ll have some unentertaining video soon of DeRozan and Darryl Dawkins brainstorming dunk ideas
picking past dunks to replicate, wasting our time and creating buzz for the event.
