Derozan isn't much of a surprise; dude has CRAZY bounce. Gordon, on the other hand, kinda came out of nowhere. I've never seen any tape of him throwing down anything really impressive, but he's a pretty good in-game dunker.

Yeah, I don't really think

Yeah, I don't really think that Gordon belongs there over the guys you mentioned, just like Rudy Fernandez didn't belong there instead of Joe Alexander or Russell Westbrook last year.

He is a good leaper, but I dont see him as a dunk contest kinda of dunker. I could be wrong, but he has hops.

If i was gordon, i would skip the contest. Playing on the clippers, he'll probably tear an acl attempting a dunk!

this one was really nice:

also, the reason he doesn't appear to ever be a sick dunker is because he never shows off. he will always settle for the high percentage look which is great about him. i have feeling he will light it up in the "dunk-in" contest.

LOL ! I think that gordon is a good dunker with a good vertical but he doesnt rely on dunks like derozan cause hes has a nasty jumper and is better as shooter

Clippers thinks Gordon is

Clippers thinks Gordon is gonna light it up in the dunk contest, why am I not surprised. Anyways, I'm sure he will come with something but i believe they are competing for a chance to compete in the dunk contest and my money is on derozan to win the trip to the dunk contest.

C'mon didn't anyone understand it is a rookie soph dunk-in?
It's held during the rookie-soph game, I'd rather have Rose or Westbrook though

why does rudy fernandez get

why does rudy fernandez get hated on? He was striaght up robbed last year. People gave him crap because he took like 8 tries on that one dunk where pau gasol threw it off the backboard, but the dunk was insane. Those same people gave nate robinson a 50 when he took 15 tries on a dunk, what's the difference. Rudy defenitely brought it more then JR Smith last year.

ya this is just a contest to

ya this is just a contest to get into the main contest. They will have a dunk in during halftime of the sophomore-rookie game(im assuming they are both in that game) and whoever wins will be in the actual contest saturday night. Im with everyone that Derozan should win but Eric Gordon does have some sick bunnies. If Fred Jones can win the dunk contest, Eric Gordon should atleast have a chance to win the dunk in.
