DeMar DeRozan told ****** on Wednesday that he could win the dunk contest this year even if LeBron James was his main competitor.

“Yeah I can win it,” said DeRozan. “I don’t care if (Michael) Jordan was in it.”

DeRozan won the 2008 McDonald's All-American Dunk Contest.

I wanna see this. Get this kid in their. Micheal? Must have lost his mind.

LeBron is all hype from a dunking contest standpoint. He has no creativity. He's a power dunker and nothing else. At any rate, I think he'd win because the judges would be on the bandwagon.

Who knows?

I mean no one thought Howard would be that creative because of his height and strenght.

I'm looking forward to this dunk contest. After the first great on in a while last year, we finally got some guys excited for this. DeRozan will prolly be the rookie pick they always have for the contest.

You got it wrong, he never said he thinks he WILL win even if Jordan was in it.

He said he CAN win even if Jordan was in it.

Yeah I know he said that he can win, but come on, Jordan? That's why Im so pumped to see him, I know he is a good dunker.

Yeah that's what I'm afraid of. It's like Nate getting good scores because he is short.

Agree and disagree. I agree that's why he won it; however, dunks are more difficult for the smaller guys. Aside from Howard, who pulled off some crazy dunks, big guys dunking just isn't impressive.

Nate had some nasty dunks don't get me wrong, but he could have done a regular dunk and gotten a 5 cuz he's small.

Ya, I think he just means, it won't matter whos in it, cause he thinks he can win.

But anyways, i'm pumped too!

It would be pretty cool if Derozan won it, cause 10 years ago Vince won it, then 10 years later another Raptor wins it.

LOL, whos DeRozan? Is this another guy tryin to get his 15min by calling out lebron? kinda like DeShawn stevenson.


Lebron is the best player in the world. He has nothin to prove to anyone in a dunk contest.

In my opinion, DeMar DeRozan has every right to say he can beat LeBron James in a dunk contest. I mean, did you see how high this kid can jump? Did you see how insane his dunks are? However, I think he should have left the Michael Jordan comment out of the interview.

Derozan should be lucky enough to be able to see Lebron James face to face let alone MJ.

No he's actually not, just by saying he thinks he can beat Lebron doesn't mean your cocky.

MJs dunks have been surpassed multiple times. No one is saying Derozen is a better baller but he might be a better dunker. James wont make it past the first rnd. Nate is still King for time being. You guys are nuts thinking he just gets points because hes small, those are hard dunks hes been pulling off. Thats why no one else is doing them.

derozans already been invited to the dunk contest. cant wait to see him.

I'd like to see a different crowd of dunkers in there, but I want to see the best.

At this point, Lebron, DeRozan, & Brown, I would love to see.

Vince Carter set the bar so high for the dunk contest back when he was in it and before him, J, Nique, and MJ. (Sorry if I missed anyone)

J Rich was pretty amazing in the contest as well. Many have forgotten how sick he was. I think watching all these insane dunkers on YouTube, has made the contest lose its flair.

Love the attitude from DeRozan. You should not care who you are facing when in competition. Hope he will like 2nd place because BROWN is taking it this year :D

I believe him, Lebron lacks that style factor that is needed to be a great dunker, but he is one of the best if not the GOAT when it comes to power dunking.

If lebron backs down i will call him soft for the rest of his career. He may be afraid to lose. Would be fun to watch derozan,lebron,brown. Though.

Jordan wasn't even good in the dunk contests.Nique was light years better with more height,power,and creativity.Jordan would ******** wiggle the ball around and flail his legs to add to a basic 1-handed dunk.Get a 49.2 rounds later do an old *** free throw line dunk that 5 more dudes were doing.He'd then do all the same dunks over again and get higher scores the second time around...the most overrated athlete of all time...

assasinate myself , for what? Joaquin obviously is way more offbase than myself. Besides, do you have nothing to say on the topic or what?
