ESPN recently interviewed DeMar DeRozan, and DD is clearly confident about the team going forward.
Some key tidbits include the response “We’re not a joke” when being asked about competing with Miami and Indiana, and him alluding to the fact that he thinks he deserves to be an all-star. While I don’t think he will be voted in as a started due to the number of bandwagon fans out there, DD definitely deserves a spot on the bench, along with Kyle Lowry.
For people who think it’s cocky, don’t. He’s not supposed to say no – if you want to be a top tier player in this league, you need to have that confidence and I’m glad to see DeRozan developing some of it.
