Arrow Who represents Toronto Raptors at Slam Dunk Contest: DeMar DeRozan or Sonny Weems?

Um, I like thses two guys, but T Mac and Vince they aren't.

Quote:
A decade ago, teammates Vince Carter and Tracy McGrady brought the Toronto Raptors fame and glory with their aerial antics at the Slam Dunk Contest.

Of course, Carter became champion and, along the way, turned Kenny ‘The Jet’ Smith into ‘The Broken Record’ because the TNT broadcaster could only say ‘It’s over’ when watching the young guard perform.

Ten years later, another pair of Raptors are hoping to duplicate Carter and McGrady’s success at the Slam Dunk Contest at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

But politics won’t allow both DeMar DeRozan and Sonny Weems to compete at the February event. After all, in 2000, Carter and McGrady had profile as rising superstars, while DeRozan is a blue-chip rookie learning the pro ranks and Weems just cracked Coach Jay Triano’s rotation.

So it’s DeRozan or Weems. Not both.

In terms of athleticism in the open-court, this duo reminds many of Carter and McGrady ’s early days with Toronto. Hopefully, the Raptors’ newest pair have a happier ending than ‘V.C.’ and ‘T-Mac’.
