The Toronto Raptor’s high flier is signing the dotted line… of applications. He said as much on his twitter account earlier today as he apparently intends on entering the workforce, begging the questions:
How much do these mid-level players really make after all expenses are paid?
Is the lockout really looking that bad?
Which clothing line would DeMar DeRozan hock best?
And does a windmill jam get you a raise?
If this is true, it’s sad to see. DeRozan is arguably one of the best PURE dunkers in the league, IE: he doesn’t view jumping over the smallest part of a compact vehicle as any sort of accomplishment. He’ll jump over the sunroof and pump it twice behind his head before he even gets to the rim. And oh yeah, he actually plays a little, which means he gets paid a little as well. DeRozan made about two and a half mill last year, which means he probably took 1.5 to the bank. Not the big big bucks, but he’s still technically a millionaire. Either he’s bad with money or just bored.
If you see him at TGI Fridays, give him a nice tip. 20%.
