DeRozan Believes He Could Beat LeBron In Dunk Contest

DeMar DeRozan told RealGM 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.

Via Brian Reynolds/RealGM

Is he even in it? do you get voted in or who picks the contestants?

This kid should be more worried about his team, no?

thats the swagger we need! i thought the rook who goes into the dunk comp is voted for, like last year rudy fernandez, joe alexaner and someone else ( cant remember) were all voted on for who should do it. rudy won (of course)

The problem is Jeff, the kid is playing ball (lead the team in pts scored last night), so if he wants to talk some smack he can. And give the guy a break, was was the Mcdonalds dunk champ last year so im sure he feels good about his abilities...

He played well and he always does. He is always drving and trying to get into the lane so yea I would say he is able to say this, but it's like last year when Moon said he wanted to be in it again and then he didn't get in cuz he started jacking up too many three's, hopefully it doesn't turn into something like that. IMO this is actually good for him cuz if he wants to get in he will have to drive and get way more dunks

Yeah because confidently answering one question about the Slam Dunk Competition really puts his dedication to this team in question...

Get over it!

I just hope he's not one of those dudes who keeps talking, but can't deliver like Joey Graham. I was very worried about comments like "Air Canada is back." I don't mind confidence, but show it, then talk.

I have no problem with this - let him be cocky. And it's slam dunk, it's not like it's a measure of a player's value (and derozan knows that). He just says he can jump higher than lebron, and there's nothing wrong with that.

this is the type of confidence we need. some backbone. not like some of the pussies on the current raps roster. everytime u set floor on the court you should have the mindset that you are better then everyone else. if not, don't bother trying.

coming into the nba brandon jennings was talking alot of smack n such. the bucks coaching staffs reaction? "brandon knows hes got a lot of talent and we as a coaching staff aren't gonna tell him anything short of that"

well didn't mean that. i actually misread a little and thought you were being smartass about DD.. nvm, my bad

anyway, I don't think he knows he'll be in it, but that he was asked if he could beat LeBron if he was in it slash win in general. probably because there's so much talk going on about LeBron entering the competition or not
