At this point, it’s basically impossible for an NBA player’s custom birthday cake to not be insane. You remember Rip Hamilton’s, right? Nonetheless, let’s just take a look at how crazy DeMar DeRozan’s custom 24th birthday cake is.
For beginners, I have to imagine this is the first cake in history that marries two of the most similar cultures in all of North America: Toronto and Compton. Then, there’s a Jordan VI on there, in what I think has to be the Olympic colorway, though it’s kind of hard to tell since they’re made of icing and seem to be falling apart. Assuming they are the Olympics, that means we’ve got Canada and the United States battling for cake turf as well. And of course, there’s a classic Eazy-E hat on the top, despite the fact that DeRozan was five when Eazy-E died. Maybe he just likes the hat.
So on a scale from A Bit Crazy to Legit Insane, I’m giving this a Pretty Silly. It’s not the craziest cake ever, just like DeMar DeRozan isn’t the most exciting guy in the league, but between the hat and shoe, this is officially a crazy NBA cake. Add it to the list.
