The Toronto Raptors All-Star DeMar DeRozan loves Toronto a lot. He always finds the time to meet and greet his fans despite his heavy NBA schedule. Two months ago, he launched a book reading program, donating 3,000 books that were distributed to students from low income areas in and around Toronto as part of the DeMar DeRozan All-Star Book Program.
Recently, DeRozan and his sponsors, Klipsch (famous for headphones), were on hand at the Future Shop, Dundas Square location, where the young star had a meet and greet with his fans. Some of them actually started lining up in the cold at 6 am in the morning. They couldn’t just get a wristband ahead of time and walk around, they had to stay in line until the autograph session at 4:30pm. Now that’s respect and dedication!
As they waited, they got excited. Although when they got their items autographed, they were a bit disappointed that the organizer wouldn’t allow them to pose for a photo with DeRozan. Nevertheless, they all said it was still worth the time to see their All-Star, especially with the Raptors heading into the playoffs. These are hard core fans and they deserve a shout out for their dedication.
One thing that is becoming obvious about DeRozan is how much he loves his family. Everywhere and every time there is a public event, he will bring along his fiance Kiara Morrison and his 11-month-old daughter Diar. The Raptors young star has grown up and become quite the family man.
