It’s the opening week of the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament.
The sometimes three-ring circus that is the NBA pulled into New Orleans Friday through Sunday, where it set up shop for its literal three-ring circus: All-Star Weekend.
All weekend leading up to Sunday’s game the focus seemed to be on how the ex Oklahoma City Thunder teammates Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook would interact.
Recognition of DeMar DeRozan's work ethic and constant improvement has been slow to come in many corners of professional basketball.
Can Jonas Valanciunas promise that the Toronto Raptors will reach the NBA Finals this year?
Russell Westbrook was one of the topics du jour after Raptors shootaround on Wednesday morning, but something else also received equal attention – reaction to Donald Trump's stunning presidential victory on Tuesday night.
In the end overcoming the loss of their starting centre was just too much to contend with for a Raptors team already thin on experience in it’s front court.
If there is one thing DeMar DeRozan loves — besides simply playing basketball — it is proving his legion of critics wrong. He doesn’t do it maliciously and won’t rub mistakes in their faces, but every time he makes someone think twice about something they wrote or said about him, DeRozan smiles.
Don’t let the lesser known names on the Denver Nuggets fool you.
TORONTO — It was the type of game Dwane Casey would love with the obvious exception of his team being on the losing end of the result.
He was introduced as 'Mr. I am Toronto' and then DeMar DeRozan went out and lived up to the name.
