DeMar DeRozan Shocked by Rookie Game Snub
DeRozan found out from teammate and best friend Sonny Weems who burst into the training room where DeRozan was getting treatment for two sprained ankles and vented his own frustration at the snub. No one on the team understood it.
DeRozan said he was "more confused than angry" about not being selected but he did use his Twitter account to share his initial feelings when he found it. DeRozan sent out the three-letter tweet "Wow" and left it at that.
"I don’t get too frustrated because I’ve got an entire second half of the season to go," DeRozan said. "It’s just a chance for me to show them that I should have got a mention here."
