Everyone talks about Blake Griffin having the home court advantage in the NBA All-Star Dunk Contest Saturday night because his Clippers play at Staples Center.
DeMar DeRozan may be a Raptor, but he is an L.A. guy too — he went to high school in Compton then played his college ball at USC. He will have some fans in the stands.
Especially if he pulls off a few of the dunks he’s been practicing, which you can catch in this video. And DeRozan was smart to bring in Jus Fly to consult a little — this isn’t in-game dunking, it’s a show.
