Almost a month into the season, it remains remarkable that DeMar DeRozan is leading the league in scoring. His efforts have been justly rewarded by the NBA after it was announced that DeRozan is the East Conference Player of the Week for Nov. 7th to 13th.
The NBA announced Monday that DeMar DeRozan has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Nov. 7-13. #RTZ— RaptorsMR (@RaptorsMR) November 14, 2016
DeRozan led the NBA last week averaging 34.7 points, while shooting .535 (38-for-71) from the field in three games (all victories). #RTZ— RaptorsMR (@RaptorsMR) November 14, 2016
The three-game stretch saw the Raptors go 3-0, and DeMar scoring 37, 34, and 33, respectively as he continues his blistering start to the season. DeKobe DeBryant, DeMichael DeJordan, DeGeorge DeGervin, etc, etc.
Shout out to this dude’s tweet too:
DeRozan joins Vince Carter, Chris Bosh, and Kyle Lowry as the only Raptors to win the award multiple times.
