DeMar DeRozan is playing in the Drew League again this offseason just as he did last summer. The Drew League has some of the NBA’s finest mixing it up with local legends and up and comers and has been a staple in LA hoops for more than 35 years. Dash Harris, LA native and player for Texas A&M university –and one of DeRozan’s friends– tweeted earlier today calling the league LA’s Rucker Park. Packed gym, lots of talent and big names? Sounds good to me.
Here’s a highlight mix of some of DeRozan’s best dunks from his games at the Drew League. Love the grown out hair, love the mid-range game, and of course, love the windmill at the 2:00 mark. Wowzers.
Turns out we’re not the only admirers of DeRozan’s athleticism. In a recently released track from rapper Royce Da 5’9″, the Detroit rapper name drops DeRozan, saying,
“You’re about to see how far Paul Rosenberg’ll go / The height of my game is like a DeMar DeRozan vertical.”
Check the track here, but beware: It’s not for virgin ears.
