DeMar DeRozan is playing well in the preseason and he at least partially credits how comfortable he has become off the court.

“Going into my fifth year in the league, just having the utmost confidence," said DeRozan. "Not having no doubt or no questions about nothing.”

DeRozan has frequently been the best player on the court for the Toronto Raptors.

“He’s a family man and all that starts to come into play as you grow and mature," said Dwane Casey. "That’s why it’s so hard when people talk about: ‘This guy’s going to come in and take over the league.’ No, it doesn’t happen overnight. It’s a four year process, a five year process ... It’s really good to see.”
