DeMar DeRozan applied for what is regarded as one of the NBA’s nastiest dunks against the Raptors. When he blasted by a swiping Kyle Lowry, sped by Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, posterizing Chris Boucher with authority. Plus, DeRozan brought Boucher down with him and gave him a despicable glare for even attempting to jump with him.
DeMar DeRozan‘s victory was especially sweeter because it was over his former squad. So the dunk was probably motivated by desperation. In the end, the Spurs prevailed 105-104 and DeMar got his revenge with a dub.
He recently responded to a question from Q + D of the podcast Knuckleheads about which of his dunks was his favorite. He immediately chose this one and further explained how Boucher blocking his shot 3 times made him so angry to dunk that ball so hard, “I got a funny story of that right? That you mentioned that. So young fella that summer before that season, we was hooping at UCLA, and a lot of teams up there.”
He continued “He blocked my shot like three times. And I’m like, “who’s this?” you know what I mean? And I took offense to it to where it’s like, yo, you know, he yelling and all that. So when we played, when we played bro, and I went to the basket, I seen him coming. I’m like, all right, you’re not bigger than me or stronger than me, the worst thing you can do is follow me. So I went to the basket with that on my mind, from the previous summer of him just blocking my shot. “
Further stated “It’s like, yo, I’m going to the bucket. And I’m about to dunk the sh*t out this boy, he gonna get out the way or he gonna follow me. So that’s how really had me.”
