DeRozan, 33, is arguably coming off the best season of his 13-year career. He averaged nearly 28 points per game, and shot a career high from the three-point line.
This was enough to make him a starter in last years All-Star game, and earn a spot on the All-NBA second team. Nike is bringing back one of its premier faces. It will be refreshing to continue watching DeMar rock new and old Nike’s inspired by the great Kobe Bryant.
