Kevin Durant kneels in front of an Eastern star

Kevin Durant isn’t known for dropping a lot of compliments. As a result, it is all the more interesting to dwell on these rare occasions, the Net having praised a player from the Eastern Conference recently. The least we can say is that the person concerned did not steal the praise!

Arrived this summer in Chicago, DeMar DeRozan shines with a thousand lights in Illinois. The full-back saw his career bog down during his time at San Antonio, but that’s all in the past now. From now on, nothing and no one seems to be able to stop the Raptors’ all-time leading scorer… to the point where he is stringing together records. Against the Kings (125-118 victory), he totally allowed himself to let go of something never seen in history !

Doing better than Wilt Chamberlain or even Michael Jordan is extremely strong, especially if you play for the Bulls. Unsurprisingly, the compliments poured out after his umpteenth card against Sacramento. His peers rave about him, including Kevin Durant who spoke on Twitter. His message to her is unequivocal, a superb tribute to the scorer from the Brooklyn star:

DeMar DeRozan praised by Kevin Durant after his record

Thank you for setting a good example and playing the game with supreme skill, DeMar DeRozan

The compliment is all the more appreciable for Taurus, since the Slim Reaper is not known to dish out such compliments often. His thing on social networks is rather to tackle his haters! In any case, it shows how much the player impresses everyone this year, even the biggest names in the orange ball. With 28 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists on average, he is clearly one of the candidates for MVP this year.

Indeed, beyond individual exploits, it is Chicago that sits at the top of the Eastern Conference. With 38 wins for 21 defeats, Billy Donovan’s men are having a campaign beyond all expectations and DMDR has a lot to do with it. The workforce has been hit hard by health concerns, but he has been able to stay on his two legs more than anyone to lead his people. What to have a series of five successes in progress and the possibility of making noise in the playoffs:

Holder for the next All-Star Game and spearhead of the Bulls, DeMar DeRozan lives again after a few more complicated years. To see him pocket votes for the MVP would be anything but a scandal, and even amply deserved.
