DeMar DeRozan’s daughter caused the Raptors to miss 18 free throws by screaming like a lunatic courtside
What an astounding performance on the road tonight. I’m not talking about the Bulls’ 19-point comeback over the Raptors – though I easily could be. Instead, I’m talking about Diar DeRozan being one of the most impactful players of the game, all while seated courtside.
DeMar DeRozan’s daughter would not relent until the job was finished:
Her courtside shriek was unsettling to pretty much everybody, especially the Toronto Raptors. The usually fundamentally sound ball club was rendered useless from the charity stripe, going 18/36.
I’ll admit, I had the game on in the background while I was putzing around in my apartment, but every time Diar DeRozan screamed her head off, I was immediately rattled and left wondering, “Who the hell is screaming like that??”
Towards the end of the game, I was genuinely questioning why that person wasn’t removed. Now that I know it was DeMar DeRozan’s daughter doing everything she could to will the Bulls to victory, I’m 100% on board.
The fact that she helped engineer a 19-point comeback in the Play-In is really what takes the cake, though. Of course, folks across the internet are showing Diat DeRozan love, including the one and only Stephen A. Smith.
Nice family moment aside, though. I hope I never see the Bulls in the playoffs. Potentially seven games of that?? No, thank you.
I know the odds of that are insanely slim, so I’m thankful the Sixers will avoid this one-woman wrecking crew. I need Joel Embiid’s beautiful free throw percentage intact.
