I was a huge fan of DeRozan’s coming out of USC and I’m an even bigger once since he’s entered the league. With what seemed to be a never ending lockout, most of the league’s young players decided to stay outside and away from trouble this summer by forming their own pickup games around various cities and some of the world’s most famous blacktops. The Raptors “Young One” decided to do the same. Now entering his Junior season, he’s poised to finally have that breakout season post his semi-breakout season. With the lockout over and the NBA resuming on Dec. 25, check out a glimpse of what’s to be seen this season from the Future of Toronto.
He started out a bit fat and out-of-shape his freshman year at USC and then suddenly blossomed into a 6-foot-3, 250 pound monster during his junior season. He went ape shit during his rookie year for the Houston Texans which later resulted in him winning the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year award — although he had it revoked after testing positive for a performance enhancing drug but was later given the award back after receiving the most points, again — after recording 134 tackles, five sacks and 4 interceptions to go along with 10 pass deflections and a safety. Check out the clip above to see Cushing act as his teams Ray Lewis.
The BCS stripped USC of its 2004 national title yesterday. Reggie Bush’s behind the back on the sideline, flip into the endzone touchdown’s never happened. It’s almost as if Reggie Bush never existed…
It’s not Spike Lee but rather Blake Griffin as Mars Blackmon asking USC Tight End Jordan Cameron what makes him so great. Will this help Jordan’s draft stock this year? Probably not but it’ll make for a good promotional video to show his grand-kids.
Check it out as Stanford fumbled the ball and USC’s Shareece Wright thinks he’s got a scoop and score for 6…Then comes QUARTERBACK Andrew Luck with the HUGE hit causing another fumble. USC got the ball back, but that was a crazy hit from a quarterback. Looks like someone may have played some linebacker at some point in his life. Thanks to my boy Brett for showing me this today.
