Popovich explains why he believes DeMar DeRozan is superhuman

Despite losing tonight against the San Antonio Spurs, the Chicago Bulls still got praised by coach Gregg Popovich. He specifically pointed out DeMar DeRozan for being selected as a starter in the NBA All-Star game. But inside the court, the San Antonio Spurs had no mercy at AT&T Center with a 131-122 victory over the Chicago Bulls. DeRozan played a great game with 32 points and Zach LaVine got 30. Even so, that wasn’t enough to stop the Spurs with Gregg Popovich as their coach. He knows how DeRozan works from their time together in San Antonio, where they shared time in the squad for three years.

Ahead of tonight’s game, the Spurs‘ coach was asked about DeRozan‘s selection as an NBA All-Star game starter for the Eastern Conference. Popovich is not surprised, he offered some insight into what DeRozan can be as a player and a person. “I didn’t know him personally at all. And I found him to be one of my favorite guys of all time. He’s superhuman in every way, shape and form. He’s just one of those guys. You feel comfortable with him,” the Spurs boss said. “You can talk to him about lots of stuff. Life things, in addition to basketball things. Just enjoyed being around him, giving opinions about what’s going on in the world, that sort of thing. Just hit it off.”

What’s next for the Bulls and the Spurs?

With tonight’s win against one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, the San Antonio Spurs have a 19-31 record. They are set to rest for a day before making a trip to Arizona to face the mighty Phoenix Suns next Sunday. After tonight’s defeat, the Chicago Bulls have a 30-18 record and will also rest for a day before getting a visit from the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday as well. Regardless of today’s result, Gregg Popovich still holds DeMar DeRozan close to his heart as a great friend. Him getting a starting position in the All-Star game is obvious, especially after becoming the only player in NBA history to score two consecutive buzzer beaters for the Bulls in the same week. Back-to-back heroic moments that made him immortal.
