DeMar DeRozan doesn't make all his shots, but the ones that go down sure look good.

Late in the second quarter of the Toronto Raptors' game against the Portland Trail Blazers, DeRozan put in this gravity-defying 360-degree layup, spinning right around the outstretched arms of LaMarcus Aldridge:

He gets extra style points for sticking with the play even after Jonas Valanciunas was stripped of the ball. Kyle Lowry picked up the rock and found a streaking DeRozan going baseline, and we're lucky he did.

Pencil this in as an official Layup of the Year candidate, since it's not every day we're left pining for posters of a play that didn't end with a vicious slam.
