Toronto Raptors leading scorer, three-time NBA all-star, DeMar DeRozan will join Kyrie Irving and Shaquille O’Neal as cover athletes for 2K this year. DeMar DeRozan will be appearing on the Canadian cover of NBA 2K18, and this is the first-ever Canadian-exclusive cover.
DeRozan said: “It's
something that's extremely awesome and definitely mind-blowing.” When this
opportunity came round, he even couldn’t believe it and he was at a loss
Some people may say “why
him? He is not the best player in Raptors history.” Yes, he is not the best.
But nobody can name another player that can represent a city in NBA like him
for what he has done for the Raptors. Last season when he hit the free-agent market,
he almost immediately committed to re-signing with the team that originally
drafted him. DeRozan love the city of Toronto and the Raptors. “Being part of
the whole process here, eight years, it’s been amazing to see everything
develop— from Toronto hosting the all-star weekend to us making the Eastern
Conference Final. Something like this— being on the cover— isn’t just for me,
it’s for Canada. Period,” he says. “Us being the only team in the country and
sometimes not getting the full recognition we deserve, things like this help us
to go bigger.” Click for more: https://www.mmogah.com/news/nba-2k18/demar-derozan-will-grace-the-canadian-exclusive-cover-of-nba-2k18
