DeMar DeRozan is certainly having a great time as part of the Chicago Bulls right now. There was a change he was going to join the Los Angeles Lakers, but it simply didn’t work out. It seems DeRozan fired back at his haters recently.
Despite the Bulls’ great position this season, it seems there are those who think DeRozan is ‘washed,’ which is certainly not the truth at all. At 32 years old, DeRozan is still very effective and his latest game proved just that.
During last night’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers, DeMar DeRozan scored 38 points. After the conclusion of the game, DeRozan noted that LaVine wanted him to score 40. While speaking to reporters, DeRozan addressed the ‘washed’ comments and fired back at all of his haters.
“I can go down the list of just being counted out, being looked over. So many chips that’s on my shoulder that I carry. And just wanting to be a winner and wanting to enjoy this ride. We can’t play this game forever, so I want to get as much as I can out of it. […] I never looked at age as being an issue. I never looked at it. People put the age limit on everything, and I never did. The way I worked, the way I take care of my body, the way I prepare, I knew what I was capable of doing. I just took different roads the last couple years of playing basketball, trying to do the right thing, figuring it out.”
Judging by how well DeMar DeRozan has been playing this season, it is likely the Chicago Bulls will have no trouble doing well this season. It remains to be seen if they will become the champions or not.
