DeMar DeRozan almost connects on 360 dunk

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — As far as slam dunks in international competition goes, the gold standard is from the 2000 Olympics, when Vince Carter jumped completely over Frederic Weis. But last night in Oakland, Team USA’s DeMar DeRozan attempted a dunk that nearly put him in the same pantheon.

With two minutes left in last night’s exhibition between Team USA and China, and Team USA sitting on a healthy 47-point lead, Draymond Green threw the ball ahead to DeRozan, who tried a 360-dunk over a defender. DeRozan nearly made it, and nearly made history.
