The Toronto Raptors acquired Kawhi Leonard, along with Danny Green, as a result of the trade with the San Antonio Spurs this past Wednesday. The deal should have been applauded by Raptors fans since they were receiving a superstar-level talent, as the team set its sights on reaching the Finals with LeBron James no longer ruling over the Eastern Conference. However, the only thing that the people of Toronto wanted to talk about was the departure of DeMar DeRozan.
DeRozan, who was shipped to the Spurs in the trade involving Leonard, was loved by the Raptors. He was the guy who re-signed with the organization when he could have easily inked a deal with one of the teams closer to his hometown of Compton, California. After nine seasons in Toronto, DeMar was determined to become one of the rare players who actually play their entire career with one team. Even Drake, the 6 God, took the time to thank DeRozan for what he meant to the franchise and the city.
A Redditor shared a post where he took the structure from Drake's song "Marvin's Room," and transformed it into "DeMarvin's Room" with lyrics entirely referencing DeRozan's situation with the Raptors following his trade.
