DeMar DeRozan’s Missed 360 Dunk vs Jason Richardson’s 360 blocked by LeBron

The Raptor lost their 5th straight game on Saturday…and it was against the Knicks. During that game DeMar DeRozan, who missed 12 of his 15 shots, had a play that summarized February for them. Midway through the first quarter, the two time cheated by the NBA dunk contest contestant got a steal and went for a 360 dunk and missed it pretty badly.

The missed 360 reminded me of the time when Jason Richardson attempted a 360 dunk, in the 4th quarter and down by 2, and got it blocked from behind by a trailing LeBron. The refs probably should have called a foul on this play but it wasn’t the smartest play to try by Richardson – even if he was a dunk contest champion.
