DeRozan on All-NBA Team

DeMar DeRozan Lands on 2017 All-NBA Third Team

Despite the disappointing end to their season, the Toronto Raptors received some good news going into their weekend as franchise centrepiece, DeMar DeRozan was named third-team All-NBA, capping off what was a career year for the ‘Kid Out of Compton’.

The three-time All-Star finished the 2016/17 season fifth in the NBA in scoring at 27.3-points per game, while also racking up career-highs in rebounding (5.2-per game), field goal percentage (46.7%), free throws made and attempted (7.4/8.7 per game), and PER (24).

After receiving a monster extension, DeRozan went on an absolute scoring tear this past season. He opened the regular season notching 40-points. DeRozan also scored at least 30-points in his first five games, a feat not seen since ‘His Royal Airness’, Michael Jordan accomplished the feat.

This marked the first time the 27-year old cracked an All-NBA team.

Quite an accomplishment from Mr. Loyalty himself!
