The National Basketball Association announced Monday that DeMar DeRozan has been selected as Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played Feb. 26-Mar. 4. This marks the ninth time DeRozan has earned the honour during his nine seasons in Toronto and the fourth time this season. He was also named East Player of the Week for games played Nov. 13-18, Dec. 18-24 and Jan. 1-7.

DeRozan averaged a team-high 20.8 points, 5.8 assists and 3.0 rebounds during four games last week. He shot .482 (27-for-56) from the field and .794 (27-for-34) at the free throw line. DeRozan led or was tied for the team lead in scoring during all four of Toronto’s victories. The Raptors were the only team in the NBA to win four games last week, and secured a winning record for a fifth consecutive season.

 kind of a sign of respect here. usually DeMar has to score a boatload of points to even be considered for player of the week/month.

 
 wasnt really his best week but his playmaking as been great.

The leadership is really showing up as well. I always thought he was a good leader, but that's gone to such a higher level now.

Yes. Has a lot to do with leadership and growing up. His talk about depression and mental health is extremely important and shows another aspect of him just being a good person and leader. Really happy for DDR outgrowing every box he has been put in so far. Gotta love DeMar Darnell DeRozan!

yeah, probably not going to happen after the week he's having now. Remember, the previous player of week was for February, so it's one great week followed by a pretty bad one in march. Lebron is having a monster month so far on the other hand, so, not that it matters, but it's not looking good.
