The Raptors have has a pretty decent seaosn so far, currently standing at 2nd in the East.
DeMar DeRozan, being a near MVP candidate this year, has been the main reason for that success. Despite his play this season, however, his name has been struck from most media outlets.
And, if you ask him, the refs haven’t exactly treated him well either.
DeRozan, who does make enough, had more to say on the officiating: "I mean, it's frustrating being out there feeling like you playing 5 on 8. It's just what it feel like. Period. Some of them calls was terrible. Period."

DeRozan is averaging 25 points per game, 4.2 rebounds, and 5.1 assists on 47.9% shooting. Yet, the guy has never been treated as a true NBA superstar.
Does DeRozan deserve the benefit of the doubt or is he just blaming the refs for his problems?
