DeMar DeRozan’s Heartfelt and Classy Goodbye Message To Toronto


DeMar DeRozan got screwed badly. No Raptors player has ever embraced the city of Toronto like him, and no Raptors player has ever reached the stats he’s reached. DeMar leaves town being the Raptors’ all-time leader in games played, minutes and points.

What makes the trade even worse, he got traded for a player who doesn’t want to play there and will most likely sign with the Lakers next summer. It could turn out that DeRozan left Toronto in return for nothing.

DeMar is extremely upset with the Raptors, claiming he was lied to after team officials promised him he would not be traded.

Now, after a couple of days of silence, DeRozan has finally said something, and shared his classy goodbye message to the city and to the country of Canada. What a great guy!


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
