Needs more Spud Webb. Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan was named an injury replacement in the 2011 NBA All-Star Game Slam Dunk Contest for Bucks guard Brandon Jennings last month, and by the looks of it, he’s seizing the opportunity and taking it very, very seriously. I have no idea what DeRozan is cooking up in the above photo, but it looks, um, kind of dangerous. Potentially maiming, even. What’s the deal with guy in the yellow gorilla chicken suit on the ladder? Why is there a drum laying there? How will a percussion instrument play into the performance?
So many questions. It almost makes me want to tune in to NBA All-Star Weekend to see what amazing, death-defying dunk DeRozan will attempt. I said almost.
