DeMar DeRozan becomes the 50th player to touch the 20,000 NBA points mark
Not only in NBA but also in the International circuit, DeMar Derozan is a well-known name with a Basketball World Cup gold and an Olympic gold by his name.
Chicago Bulls star climbed the 20k points mark on Friday in his own hypnotic way when he hit a mid-range jumper in the first quarter in San Antonio and became the 50th one to achieve this feat. The Spurs side instantly called time out for him to celebrate this milestone.
After the victory, DeMar stepped on to say, “I wanted to save it for Pop,” sarcastically, further he continued “Going back to space that I spent time, learned so much from, a place that embraced me, wasn’t nothing but love. And it was definitely a learning curve for me in my career at a critical time in my career – and Pop really helped me a lot in my career. I think it will be cool to be able to do it there.”
The Chicago Bulls also mentioned their trusted player on Twitter, congratulating him for his work.
NBA Career of DeMar Derozan
DeMar Derozan made his statement to enter into the 2009 NBA Drafts in which he was selected as the 9th overall pick by the Toronto Raptors, the 6ft 6inch tall cleared that the reason he decided to enter the NBA only after one year of USC was to help and take care of his mother, suffering from Lupus.
On January 30, 2014, he opened his curtain towards the NBA All-Stars Games in that season as a reserve guard for the Eastern Conference All-Stars Team. The 2013-14 season also turned out to be a breakout career for this star where he averaged 22.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 4.0 assists.
The 2017-18 season came up as his exit season for the Toronto side after which he was traded to San Antonio Spurs for which he recorded 28 points in his debut to register a 112-108 points win over the Timberwolves. The following two seasons didn’t go as planned for the American professional, and then came the bounce-back season for DeRozan when Chicago Bulls picked him. He didn’t disappoint the side giving many bummer performances through which he was also selected in his 5th NBA All-Star Games.
