FIt was one of the big rumors of last summer. Well, actually it has been for the last two seasons. The way of DeMar DeRozan, fan of Lakers from the cradle, and the one from the Angelina franchise seemed doomed to meet to complete the yellow ‘Big Three’ alongside LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Yet at the last moment Russell Westbrook he crossed his path and was chosen by the Lakers, frustrating the transfer of the resigned shooting guard. “It was a great opportunity for me, but sometimes things don’t work out.”
DeRozan, one of the NBA’s most underrated stars to wear nine seasons averaging more than 20 points per game, had to leave his dream parked and ended up opting for the Chicago Bulls, which appeared as the second option in his future plans. Today, four months later, that option seems to have finally been the most successful of all.

The escort, who signed a contract for three seasons and $ 81.9 million, is the offensive reference of some Bulls that today reign as the best team in the Eastern Conference. A team that has been reassembled in summer and that seems to finally opt for everything with a nucleus made up of Lonzo Ball, Zach LaVine y Nikola Vucevic And that he has DeRozan as his executor.
A player who has earned a place in NBA history after the Bulls’ victory over the Washington Wizards (119-120) with a basket on the horn of a DeRozan that becomes the first player in league history to hit two winners on consecutive nights. The ‘killer’ of a team that leads its conference and that has become the great sensation of the season in the NBA while the Lakers are still trying to recover their identity.
The itch. That’s what he’s been feeling Stephen Curry 158 straight nights in the NBA. The Golden State Warriors’ crack was key in his team’s comeback against the Utah Jazz with 28 points and six triples, allowing him to break his own record of 157 straight games by scoring at least one shot out of three. Numbers of an alien who led a team that scored 53% of the triples that they tried against Jazz that could do nothing to stop their rival.

The Detroit Pistons, the worst team in the NBA and had only won two of their previous 20 games, they took the duel against the San Antonio Spurs in overtime. And they did it with a miracle in the form of a basket on the horn of Saddiq Bey, who scored a triple with 1.9 seconds to go with two defenders on top among which stood out the 2.16 wingspan of Jakob Poeltl and who came to nothing before the success of the Pistons player.
