To me DeRozans dunks were a lot more creative well Robinson were the same original old boring shit. Like that dunk off that back board over Sonny Weems looked really difficult, and his two handed windmill from just inside the free throw line was better then Robinsons dunks. I think If he played on a team like the knicks he would have gotten the votes. Just saying. DeRozan by far had more creative and difficult dunks.

Well some will agree with you but I don't think that Derozan got screwed. That Dunk Competition made a pretty good reason why they shouldn't have it for a while

Well he got handed the starting job in TOronto but good thing he didn't get handed teh dunk competition or play in the rookie challenge. Realization of your worth is a better thing than winning a silly competition.

All I have to say is that save for Charles Barkley and Kevin Harlan the TNT "analysts" can go suck a fat one, they're awful. I can't imagine basketball fans actually enjoying these morons, is TNT targeting a certain demographic with these guys?

I actually really liked DeRozan's dunk over Sonny, but he just didn't sell it as well as he could have. DeRozan is an amazing dunker but not as good of a showman as Vince was. DeMar also finishes his dunks kind of weakly, where as Vince finished his dunks with an Amare-like 'POW' slam.

I'm just happy that Shannon Brown got exposed for the fraud he is. Kid has mad hops but the only reason he gets any respect is because he's in L.A.

ye demar needs little more power in his dunks. I think nate's last dunk>d's last dunk. I don't know what he was trying to do in his last dunk..was he trying for freethrow windmill? He should of done another under the legs, but it came down to popularity so Nate had it all along.
Shannon brown has a lot of power in his dunks in the games but nothing in the competition. I think the only dunks brown can do are those statue of liberty dunks, otherwise he is not creative. lol Wallace was even worse, Wallace has been in the competition before and there's good reason why he lost then.

Dude, if it wasn't for the commentators I would have killed myself watching that crap.

Please, the guys broadcasting were almost laughing at his last dunk while nearly cuming over Nate and his athletic ability, even going so far as to say he might be the greatest athelete ever in the NBA.

And trust me, the judges wouldn't have been that far off those sentiments.

No. It was Derozan's contest to lose, and he did just that with his final jam..

interesting little quote from Nate:

But with the pressure on, DeRozan turned conservative, surprising the other finalist, Nate Robinson.
"Downstairs he was practicing some different dunks I thought he was going to do," Robinson said.
"I guess they was just for warm-ups."

They laughed at Nate's dunks too, more than @ DeMar's. When they talked about Nate's athletic ability it was a follow up drool on DeMar's jumping ability.
And Nate is an incredible athlete.

I never questioned them for bringing it up. My point was to someone saying the judges would have picked Derozan, while the voting was somehow bullshit. I was just saying that Nate would have still won, because Derozan's second dunk was a joke and they're all in awww of Nate's athletic ability.
