DeRozan artwork emerges in San Antonio.
DeMar DeRozan has been welcomed to San Antonio with open arms, and a mural depicting him alongside multiple all-time Spurs greats. Unlike the numerous murals of LeBron James in Los Angeles, we don't expect any longtime Spurs fans to deface the DeRozan artwork that recently popped up on the wall of Rudy's Seafood.
According to My San Antonio, the restaurant commissioned Los Otros Murals' Nik Soupé to start the Spurs-themed mural last March, and it now includes several Spurs legends including Manu Ginobili, David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, George "The Iceman" Gervin, and Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich. The most recent edition is #10, who has yet to suit up for the Spurs but will likely become a fan favorite as soon as he steps foot on the court.

The Spurs acquired DeRozan in a blockbuster trade earlier this Summer in a deal that sent two-time Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard, as well as veteran shooting guard Danny Green, north of the border. DeRozan, 29, averaged 23 points, 5.2 assists and 3.9 rebounds per game last season while leading the Toronto Raptors to the best record in franchise history and a #1 seed in the Eastern Conference.
