"No, Toronto isn't LA which is where you think you want to be, but if you're serious about winning titles and building on the legacy you've already begun as an National Basketball Association player, Toronto isn't a bad place to do it". Other NBA players backed him.

DeMar DeRozan took Drake's "In My Feelings" challenge to a whole 'nother level last week. going to the song's creator himself to figure out his feelings after the Raptors stunningly traded him. "And it showed, it showed in the progress we made as a team, as me as an individual". You are a fixture in Toronto forever and you gave everything you had.

"I felt like I wasn't treated - with what I sacrificed for nine years, you know - with the respect that I felt I deserved". I didn't have no indication like it would be something else. That was my whole problem. I understand how the game works, how the business works. Two days prior, it was asked, 'Is anything going on?' If it is, just let me know because the rumors keep coming up. That's where my frustration came from. And I think it showed. Not even just Toronto, everything that came with Canada, wearing that Toronto Raptors jersey.

DeRozan told ESPN that Gay was the second person he talked to after being informed by the Raptors that he would be traded to the Spurs. Was there anything going on, if it was a chance I'd be traded?' And on multiple occasions it was, 'No, it was nothing.' If it is, then let the agent know or me know.

Nikki's budget is around a million dollars. "But to have a healthy, happy lifetime with him, I have to take a while myself". Brie and Nikki will be on The Tonight Show to promote Total Divas and Total Bellas .

If you've followed DeRozan's career with Toronto over the years, you know the man has a point. "It was a dream. still kind of feel like a dream right now". It's cold. He knows that, but the sting is understandably still there.

However, the Lakers were put off the high asking price from San Antonio with the belief they will be able to get him for free in 2019. DeRozan is going to like being a Spur.

He's still just getting over the sting of the trade.
