SAN ANTONIO — Congratulations to San Antonio Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan. He has been named the recipient of the 2017-18 Magic Johnson Award trophy from the Professional Basketball Writers Association.
Last week, DeMar DeRozan received the Professional Basketball Writers Association's 2017-18 Magic Johnson Award trophy, which honors the player who best combines on-court excellence with cooperation and dignity in dealing with the media and the public.
DeRozan has always been cooperative with media since entering the league with the Raptors. He's always willing to talk and treats reporters with patience and gives of his time.
This season with the Spurs, DeRozan has shown the same qualities with the media that earned him the award which will hopefully net him the award next year.
According to the PBWA, Spurs great Manu Ginobili was a finalist for the award.
