Proud DeMar


No Longer a Raptor, DeMar DeRozan Remains Proud of Former Team

Just build the statue already, why wait?

If Toronto Raptor fans haven’t already loved DeMar DeRozan enough, his recent string of appearances on Instagram Live may have cemented DeRozan’s place in Toronto sports history.

One of the greatest Raptors of all time, DeRozan was traded to the San Antonio Spurs during the Summer of 2018 for the expiring contracts of Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green. The Raptors would go on to win the franchise’s first NBA championship the following Summer.

Despite being replaced by Leonard, the 30-year old guard holds no grudges or hard feelings towards the team that drafted him out of USC. In fact, DeRozan was one of the team’s biggest supporters during the Raptors magical postseason run.

During a conversation with Pascal Siakam on Instagram Live last night, DeRozan called Toronto’s run to the championship during last year’s playoffs “the best s–t ever”, emphasizing how proud he was of his former rookies elevating their games and reaching the pinnacle of the NBA.

This was not the first time DeRozan spoke out about the Raptors over Instagram Live during his self-quarantine period. Earlier in the week, DeRozan called Kyle Lowry the greatest Raptor of all-time.

Raptor fans are glued to their phones, waiting for DeRozan to come back on his IG Live.
