Say it ain’t so. After DeMar DeRozan arrived in Chicago, he was widely considered the worst move of the NBA offseason by any team. Now, everyone is required to eat their words regarding the Chicago Bulls‘ star. According to ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, DeRozan is possibly the frontrunner for the NBA MVP award.

Unreal. Who would have though Smith, of all people, would be riding the DeMar DeRozan hype train? This comes after Smith put DeRozan in the top two for the award just days ago. Now, after eight straight games of 35 or more points, the USC alum is very much a favorite for the league’s MVP award.

DeRozan’s hot streak is turning heads. In fact, he’s two games shy of tying Michael Jordan’s franchise record and is earning plenty of respect from around the league. Even his opponents see what he’s doing in the Windy City.

To make matters even crazier, DeRozan joins elite company becoming just the eighth player in NBA history to put up such a streak. The others? Check out the list.

The list includes some of the greatest to ever play the game. DeRozan is on an incredible pace this season, carrying the Bulls despite a number of injuries. No Alex Caruso, no Lonzo Ball, no Patrick Williams, and yet Chicago sits atop the Eastern Conference. DeMar DeRozan has carried them there and he is deserving of the MVP award.
