View Full Version : DeMar DeRozan to replace Jennings in Slam Dunk Contest

DeMar DeRozan will reportedly replace Brandon Jennings in the 2011 NBA All-Star Dunk Contest, as Jennings will be scratched due to injury.

Back in December, Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings suffered a foot fracture that required surgery. So it was a bit of a surprise when, in early January, Jennings was named one of four participants in the 2011 NBA Slam Dunk Contest, along with Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, Washington Wizards center JaVale McGee and Oklahoma City Thunder big man Serge Ibaka.

The New York Times reported on Wednesday night that Jennings will be a scratch due to his injury and that he will be replaced by Toronto Raptors forward DeMar DeRozan.

The N.B.A. will add DeMar DeRozan to the slam dunk competition, which will be held during All-Star weekend. He will assume the spot vacated by Brandon Jennings, who is returning from a fractured left foot. DeRozan’s selection is expected to be announced on Thursday.

Hopefully Demar doesn't dissapoint this year. I think he can do some good dunks. way better choice than Jennings.

yes! I fully saw this coming. No way they were gonna put Jennings in after just healing from a broken foot.

Good choice, way better than Jennings. Hopefully DeRozan pulls something better than last year.

Well the name factor isn't there for these guys, only guy I've ever really seen is Blake Griffin. I'll still watch and hopefully some of these guys can make it exciting.

That would be hilarious if it happened again :laugh2:

DeRozan is the safe choice here. He put on a good show last time around and should have won it. He had the best dunk though he used it in the first round (should of saved it, not sure if he would of gone through though).

Derozan said he was hurt last year or just coming back from injury. No excuses this time around.

John Walls Era
01-20-2011, 04:39 PM
Did he really? I didn't hear about that.

Yeah he would've been good, but I don't blame him for not wanting to do it. Theres only so many dunks that a PG could do, it would take major innovation to create something people have never seen before, which is hard to do for a PG.

“Congrats to my boy DeMar DeRozan for getting picked for the slam dunk contest, you been dunking since the 3rd grade,” was Jennings’ Tweet.

“Big ups to my bro,” replied DeRozan. “You know I'ma need you in the dunk contest for something. We back home so we gotta come up with something!!!”

Well BJ will be there...

Everyone is going to vote Blake for jumping from the dotted line while Demar dunks from the top of the key.

The dunk contest has been wack since the nba went wwe on us.. Everything is now about the show then the actually dunks.. I.e nate robinson & dwight .. All of those dunks were overrated and will always be and people on here will cry and defend it but when you watch guys like team flight bros and vince carter clips u realize and know that the nba is now waterd down..

Add and bring in james white for ibaka and then we can actually saw its getting better..

Every year they say the dunk contest is back.. Don't u think that's old and have been repeated 100 times?

If the players decline then fine.. Get the next vote getter.. Someone like a james white who is wayyyyyyy better and wants tv time WILL..

Like I said the nba should vote allstars(I.e the yao situation) let the fans vote the other games 3,skills,dunk even celeb game w.e its not hard because someone will always want to do it.

Man, I hope DeMar DeRozan does a hell of a lot better than he did last year. He's got the ability to make this contest exciting if he can compete with Griffin closely.

HoopsDrive
01-20-2011, 09:03 PM
If you were in the dunk contest last year. You should never be invited back! Unless your Nate Robinson.

You gotta be ******** me. DeRozan had the ONLY noteworthy dunk in that pile of crap of a contest. Nate "The Same" Robinson lived up to his moniker and did the same dunk 3 or 4 times... the same dunk he had done in the other contests. And he still won. For this competition to be relevant again you DO NOT want Nate to be in it.

Demar was injured before the all star break. He said he had a couple of things he wanted to try but couldn't because of his injury.
if he pulled off THOSE dunks last year with an injury.. watch out B Griffen! Air canada is back!

lol no. Nate won 3 dunk contests and only deserved the second one. People have been calling him repetitive for a long time now, no reason to expect he's gonna get more creative all of a sudden.

He has lift and power in his dunks, but he't not creative at all. He represented the Lakers poorly in the last contest.

I think with Jennings they were going for the Nate factor. Small guy getting up there and throwing it down. They got 2 PFs and a C in it. Derozan should be good. Should want to improve on last year
