DeMar DeRozan set to play in his 1,000th career game tonight
DeRozan has been an ironman in his career and rarely misses time. In 14 seasons played and counting in the NBA, he’s played a full 82 games twice, has played at least 70 games six times, and has never played less than 60 games in a season as a pro. That’s the kind of reliability that all front offices wish they could have in their players.
With his 1,000th career game tonight, DeRozan will become the 143rd player in league history to reach this prestigious career milestone. Since the 2009-10 season, he’s played in the most games (999), with Russell Westbrook (983), and Thaddeus Young (974) behind him. In two and a half seasons with the Chicago Bulls, DeRozan has only missed nine out of 127 possible games. Not many players are as reliable as he is.
Despite Chicago’s struggles, DeRozan is having another solid season as a pro. This is his tenth straight season of averaging over 20 points per game. Additionally, this is his third-highest scoring average (26.1) over his career.
