Demar's style is kind of bland IMO..Usually a one leg take off, pump, doesn't grab the rim -I like when dudes actually attempt to tear the rim off as opposed to just grazing it. That was the glaring difference between him and Carter that I first noticed. Carter could do it ALL better than anyone on, two feet take off, one foot take off, pump or windmill in traffic. I expect Demar to win this mini comp though.

Rudy Fernandez was an unoriginal dunker during game time, all alley-oops from blake, and in the dunk contest he shocked the world.

Derozan can pretty much kiss the shot clock with those hops, so I expect great things from him.

From what I've seen from Demar in dunk contests, his style doesn't differ much from In Game to Contest. He jumps high and tosses down softly. Consistant but nothing groundbreaking.

With Carter though, you actually were convinced he could windmill over someone in a game, and he did. He performed dunks that would receive 50's in dunk contests, in games, and did them over and on defenders.

D12 doesnt hang on the rim, yet he still won the dunk contest.

D12 doesnt even dunk the ball, he just throws it at the basket and wins.

It doesn't matter to me what the collective voted and decided. It's just my personal preference...Big guys usually don't hang in dunk contests because it exposes that they only have to jump like 12 inches to dunk. And D12 didn't even dunk, and he won.

1 out of 4 dunks in 2008 he threw it at the rim, and the other 3 were pretty damn spectacular.

Default Raptors Rookie Guard DeMar DeRozan Selected For NBA All-Star Dunk Contest

Quote:
The NBA and Toronto Raptors announced Thursday that Raptors rookie guard DeMar DeRozan will face-off against sophomore guard Eric Gordon of the Los Angeles Clippers in a nationally televised slam dunk competition - the NBA All-Star Dunk-In - to determine one of the participants in the Sprite Slam Dunk contest at All-Star Weekend.

DeRozan was taken by the Raptors with the ninth pick in the first round of the 2009 NBA Draft. The product of USC has started all 39 games, averaging 7.8 points and 2.8 rebounds in 20.3 minutes.

This one-round dunk-in competition will be held during halftime of the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam on Friday, February 12, and fans will determine the winner by voting via SMS text message and at NBA.com. Voting polls will open at the beginning of the event and close two minutes after the final dunk. The player with a higher percentage of overall votes will advance to participate in the Sprite Slam Dunk event on All-Star Saturday Night. The NBA is scheduled to announce the other three contestants Monday, January 18.

Each participant will have two dunks each, with an one-minute time limit to complete each dunk, with an NBA referee on hand to judge whether a dunk is considered a made or a missed dunk. At the discretion of the referee, television instant replay may be consulted for clarification of rules compliance.

The NBA All-Star Dunk-In will air live on TSN, which will televise the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam (7 p.m. ET) from American Airlines Center in Dallas. TSN’s coverage of All-Star Weekend will continue Saturday from American Airlines Center in Dallas with All-Star Saturday Night (8 p.m. ET), including the Sprite Slam Dunk contest, and will conclude Sunday from Cowboys Stadium with the 59th NBA All-Star Game (7 p.m. ET).

The Sprite Slam Dunk and T-Mobile Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam are part of NBA All-Star 2010, which also includes the Foot Locker Three-Point Shootout; Taco Bell Skills Challenge; Haier Shooting Stars; NBA All-Star Jam Session presented by adidas; and the 59th NBA All-Star Game.
