DeMar DeRozan shuts down fan who tries to recruit him to Lakers

It seems as if from the first moment the Toronto Raptors drafted DeMar DeRozan in 2009 people have been trying to recruit him to the Los Angeles Lakers.

On one hand, it does kind of make sense seeing as he went to college at USC, grew up a Los Angeles fan and modelled a good portion of his game off Lakers great Kobe Bryant.

Then again, at every opportunity for DeRozan to potentially leave Toronto he’s always re-signed, so you’d think people would have let this ship sail by now, right?

Nope.

As you can see in the clip above, apparent Lakers fan Brandon Aguirre happened to see DeRozan walking at a theme park and once again asked the eternal question.

Here’s how the exchange went:

Aguirre: DeRozan, come to the Lakers!

DeRozan: Hell no!
