Derozan's comments last night...

"We don't know how old Serge really is, sometimes he looks 28 sometimes he looks 38. He's been looking 28 lately".

What the fuck Demar.

Though if it's sort of a joke in the locker room and ibaka doesn't care about the joke (because of all the bullshit in the media) it may be fine. But even then to say it in an interview..

Just reading that, I thought the same thing. But DeMar’s a pretty sensible guy most of the time, so I’m sure it’s something that they all joke about.

I thought it was funny - DDR just poking good natured fun at the whole thing making it irrelevant.

I don’t agree ... joking about a public rumour only brings more light to it

It wasn't joking about a public rumor. It was making light of that rumor and poking a little fun while offering a compliment. And in the end, it was a completely accurate assessment.

What better way to keep a guy motivated than to have him clearly know there will be a cost to him for playing like he's 38, whether it's fair or not? The team is doing everything to support him in being able to play like he's 28, so in that respect everything is more than fair where it matters most.

Sometimes you gotta embrace the negativity to show it doesn't bother you.. Remember when the warriors all wore the cupcake shirts for durant in OKC? they pretty much defused that situation head on.
