When DeMar DeRozan missed his 360 dunk attempt over a Chinese defender, the NBA all-star broke the internet.
Yes, a missed dunk broke the internet.
In my years of watching basketball, I’ve never seen someone attempt a 360 in game dunk over an opponent.
Even LeBron James had to speak his peace about it.

A week later, DeRozan has finally addressed the iconic missed dunk.
“What the hell was I thinking? I have no clue, from start to finish, what I was trying to do. I’m used to doing the (360) layup. Before you know it, I’m just hanging on the rim. Even if I would’ve made that, how crazy that would’ve been. When you do something, you really don’t realize in the moment, or the time, the magnitude of it. Even with a miss, it’s talked about like it’s a made dunk, so it’s crazy.”
