DeRozan done competing in 'prop dunk contest'
Raptors guard says he won't compete in slam dunk contest unless props removed
Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan is finished competing in the NBA's slam dunk contest unless the myriad of props that dominated this year's event are eliminated.
DeRozan said Tuesday he thinks he was robbed when he didn't reach the final of Saturday's event despite a series of creative dunks. Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers won by leaping over a car to edge Washington's JaVale McGee.
A Los Angeles native, DeRozan says he was disappointed in how the contest played out in his hometown after spending extra time practicing and preparing. He didn't include props such as the car, a stuffed toy and using an extra basket as other competitors did.
DeRozan says he'll only compete again if it's a true dunk contest and not a "prop dunk contest."
