Michael Jackson may be the difference in this year's NBA Slam Dunk Contest -- TMZ has learned that one of the participants is planning to incorporate a tribute to MJ during one of his dunks.
TMZ spoke with Toronto Raptors star DeMar DeRozan who told us he will definitely be using elements from "Thriller" when he throws down in Dallas on Saturday night.
Don't worry -- Dr. Murray will be in Vegas this weekend.
