On Saturday DeMar DeRozan finally took the time to say goodbye to Toronto. The shock and betrayal of being traded to the Spurs must have finally worn off.
Words could never express what you’ve meant to me. I was just a 19 year old kid from Compton when we first met, but you took me in and embraced me as one of your own. I am so grateful for the Love and Passion that you’ve given me over the past 9 years. All I ever wanted to do was duplicate it 10x over just to show my appreciation. Thank you Toronto, thank you Canada. #Comp10#ProveEm
Raptors fans are hoping they get a little bit out of Kawhi Leonard to justify sending DeRozan packing. It was in no way his choice to leave and they have nothing but love for him.
