The Raptors swingman will take part in a "dunk-in" against the Clippers' Eric Gordon on Friday evening. The winner of the competition will take part in the slam dunk contest on Saturday night of all-star weekend.
Is he going to beat Gordon?
"Eric? Yeah, of course," DeRozan said.
"You've just got to keep that confidence. When it comes to trying to entertaining people, you know I love to do that. I just love going out there and trying to show something new. It's kind of tough these days."
DeRozan added he will have a role for either Sonny Weems or Jarrett Jack — or both — on one or more of his dunks.
