Prayers up for a Spurs superstar. News just broke that Demar Derozan’s father is dead. The news came by way of his Instagram as Demar Derozan reacted to his father’s death by leaving a heartbreaking message.
In that message he thanked his father for never missing a practice, game, or opprtunity to show him he was a great parent. He didn’t disclose what caused him to pass away, but he did say his dad was battling some type of ailment for the past 3 years.
Demar Derozan is having a strong season averaging 19, 5, and 7, but an unfortunate event like this could really derail him, which would be completely understandable. Losing a parent is one of most people’s worst fears.
RIP to Demar Derozan’s dad. This is so sad.
