Brandon Jennings to Help Demar Derozan Dunk?

Demar Derozan is slated to face off against Eric Gordon on Friday night in a dunk-in, with the winner earning a spot in Saturday night’s main event. Although it’s not a guarantee, SLAM’s heard locker room chatter that DeRozan may be enlisting fellow rookie Brandon Jennings to help on a dunk or two during the dunk-in. Rookie throwing to rookie? Compton native tossing to Compton native? Tenth pick ooping to ninth pick? Forget Jarrett Jack and Sonny Weems being there to help DD, this could make for some really exciting stuff.

    DOPE. If (After) DeRozan gets passed Gordon, I hope Jennings will be helping him out in the actual competition as well!

    Jennings should join in the contest as a dunker…his youtube highlights are ridiculous

    What I’m wondering about is this: 3 days ago Terrence Williams mentioned on twitter that he might be in the dunk contest… maybe if his buddy Nate Robinson was injured?

    DeRozan is gonna win at the dunk in, but he can’t beat Shannon. No fcking way.

  • wilz

    weems might just cry if this happens

    There’s nothing a team mate can do that will bring added excitement. What could Jennings possibly do that’s spectacularly more awesome than anything Sonny Weems could do? Pass it better? Bounce it off the back board better? Having a team mate is lame.

    @Barnabusb – Nash n Amare beg to differ

  • tdotuk

    Jennings is going to throw a pass from the stands and catch everyone off guard. Book it.

    Lmao people really think Demar Derozan won’t win? I mean look at his youtube highlights and dunk contest, and most of those were in hs, imagine now, eric gordon has no chance

    DeMar and Sonny threw down some sick jams last night against PHILI!! Weems should be in the dunk contest too the way hes been taking it to the hole lately…

    cosign Jer Boi. Best partner assist in a dunk contest ever. The funny thing about that one though was that after the dunk, Kenny Smith is yelling “Steve Nash is the MVP! Steve Nash is the MVP!” The assist got more love than the dunk. lol

    co-sign Buschfire, man the way the Raptors where playing i could swear it was NBA Live or Street and coach Jay Triano was just running the offense on a game controller lol

    @Jer Boi: I don’t watch the dunk contest to see people kick the ball or bounce it off their head. An assist doesn’t make a dunk better. These guys need to leave the gimmicks at home and just go up and tear the rim down.
