The calendar just flipped to July and DeMar DeRozan already looks to be in mid-season form.
With an array of moves similar to the ones he used to push the Chicago Bulls into the playoffs and his name onto MVP ballots last season, DeRozan was the talk of the Drew League Saturday. He scored 39 points, grabbed 13 rebounds, and dished out four assists en route to earning player of the game honors.
DeRozan’s no stranger to the popular Los Angeles Pro-Am, which was founded in 1973 and has attracted the likes of Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, and James Harden in the past. The Compton, California native made his debut as a 14-year-old and has been a regular ever since.
While few expect him to score at the career-best rate he did in his first season as a Bull, DeRozan doesn’t look to have missed a beat from his All-NBA campaign.
