A tribute to @demar_derozan. A tribute to the man who put our country on his back, and repped Canada with pride and honour. A tribute to the man who almost singlehandedly started the #mentalhealth movement in the NBA by being one of the first players to openly talk about his depression. Thank you for breaking down barriers by being honest in a male-dominated sport that so often sees struggle as weakness. Thank you for championing for all of us struggling in silence, you'll never know the magnitude of the difference you've made. Thank you for being so loyal to our team, I'm really sorry for what they did to you. #wethenorth#rtz#demarderozan#indemarwetrust#mentalillness

Who's the Raptors GOAT 🐐? Although Vince is the one that spent the less time in Toronto he is the most famous and for good reasons.
Spending only 6 season in Canada he really put the city on the Map and made for the first time Raptors basketball relevant.
He had some great performances to remember such as the Sixers serie in 2001 versus Iverson in which he averages 30.4 ppg and score 50 in Game 3 in Toronto.
Air Canada is the GOAT to me although it would have been Derozan if he stayed a few more seasons (9 seasons in Toronto). CB4 stayed for 7 seasons but never had much success there and even less in playoffs.

DeMar DeRozan "Started From the Bottom" when we drafted him in 2009 and eventually took this team to the #EasternConferenceFinals. He ended up signing a 5 year $139, 000, 000 contract in "Summer Sixteen". Rumors last week had us as favourites to get Kawhi Leonard and that went from "0 to 100" real quick. The "Headlines" on all the Sports news outlets yesterday was #TorontoRaptors traded #DeMarDeRozan along with #JakobPoeltl and a top 20 protected 1st round pick to the #SanAntonioSpurs for #KawhiLeonard and #DannyGreen.
A lot of fans think Kawhi was a bad pick up because he was on his "Worst behavior in San Antonio and thinks he will sit out an entire season. He is "Too Good" of a player to do that and is on a contract year so I expect him to bring it. If the max money from the Raptors and the "6 God" #Drake can't convince him to stay and he tells his agent "Hold on we're going home" to L.A. "We'll be fine" because we can start "Over" with some cap space and still have a chance to sign another free agent.
I know it's "Too Much" to take in right now.
As a die hard fan "I'm Upset" because I thought Deebo would be a Raptor "Forever" but on the other hand I'm like "Hell Yea Fucking Right" we got one the best two way players in the league and have a shot at our first trip to the NBA Finals next season. "Take Care" DeMar even though you're a Spur you will always be a Raptor and a "Legend" in Toronto. Time to retire #10.
This evening at 8pm inside Brimz Hat Shop, will be our 3rd release party for our 6 Star Hats. This year we will be releasing two hats. All proceeds from the hat sales will go to @fs_project come out and support this movement. Food and drinks will be served. Music by @abscvnd RSVP at [email protected] or [email protected]

Toughest post ever. Did not see this day coming. 😭😭😭 @demar_derozan you've inspired so many people from the #Raptors fan base, the city of Toronto and the country of Canada. This starts from the court where you displayed hard work, loyalty, dedication, determination and built yourself up from a rookie with potential to a perennial all-star! It continues off the court with your community endeavours, down to earth mannerism, using your voice for social benefit and change, and just straight up being real 💯! It's painful to see you depart from the franchise in this way. You will always be a citizen of the 6ix.
San Antonio is getting a real gem and as fans, we expect you to elevate your game even further with such a classy organization. ✊🏾Continue to #proveem.
from @raptors - Thank you for everything, DeMar

Some thoughts on Kawhi to Raptors 🔛 DeRozan to San Antonio 👀
This felt like it came out of nowhere. It's a big gamble for the Raptors, and they have a lot of work to do. Why? Because Leonard has made it clear that he plans to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency
Toronto offered Leonard a five-year, $190 million contract next summer. If Leonard left the Raptors, he could sign a four-year, $141 million deal with a team with the available salary-cap space... RE: the Lakers
It's sad to see Demar DeRozan leave the Raptors, as he embodied their franchise and has been there through thick and thin. The NBA is a fickle business, and moves were made ensure each team involved can develop
IMO: Given the risk of Kawhi leaving next free agency, the Spurs have come out on top. They're a young team with momentum and with Popovich at the healm they're going to be competitive in the next few years. A new generation of basketball in the making, but until then... Warriors in 4 (sadly)
What do you guys think?

“and then there was one ....” This is what our team looked like 3 years ago. Only JV and Lowry remain from that squad. 😳
Could we see Lowry on the move as well. As previously demonstrated, the front office is not afraid to move core pieces such as Our franchise star Demar Derozan. Is Lowry safe or will he be traded as well? I would hate to see him go as he is my favourite player, and the heart and soul of this roster. Let me know what you think down below! ⬇️
Welcome to My Demar Derozan Account I’m Bringing back my Account My Old account had the same name but deleted Near March and April Now I’m back.In Case you missed it Demar Derozan Has Been Traded To The San Antonio Spurs For Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green And Jakob Poeltl is gone as well #Mrtoronto#wethenorth#raptors#spurs#nba
Yesterday I attended full-day photography workshop. I wasn't intending on going but I couldn't pass the up the invitation. I never usually go to these things since I've learnt photography and the business side of things all from the comfort of my home - in my bed, the couch or my office chair!
I didn't expect to take away much from the conference, but I'm super surprised how motivated I am to put all my goals into action. We have been talking about growth for a long time and making the most of all the energy and support we have managed to create so far. Growth in our business only makes sense, no matter how much I've tried to deny it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀So many lightbulbs have been going off in my head with ideas for a long time, I feel like they've finally switched on properly now. While this business has been my baby for so long and I have built the whole thing from scratch with my two hands, I just cannot do everything on my own and I need to stop trying. What is more important than my business is how I want to live my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Although in the past we've hired a maid to help around the house here and there, I think we're going to commit to this more regularly. We've finally got her in and I think we finally found someone we'll use regularly. We're now looking for a gardener (if anyone knows someone please let us know!).
On the business side of things, we've just hired a videographer to join our team (SUPER EXCITING), we are in the middle of interviewing new associates and we're now looking for a photography intern/assistant to grow with us. If you are interested or know someone who would be, please look out for my post tomorrow with the announcement! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With my new found motivation, I think I'll see all you guys at @wppionline in Vegas very soon. Let me know if you're going to be there and I'd so love to meet with you!
The Raptors will hold a press conference for Kawhi Leonard this Friday! Although Kawhi is still upset with the trade, he will be attending the Raptors offseason camp and is reportedly “warming up” to Toronto, according to Woj.
