Demar DeRozan is Building Credit

I'm a big Raptors fan. I remember being a kid in summer camp, getting the news that Vince Carter had re-signed; it felt like Christmas. I also remember the standard heartbreak of watching your sports idol leave town. I remember it with Chris Bosh a few years later.

Since he joined the team, Demar DeRozan is (in this bloggers opinion) under appreciated. But when Bosh left, Derozan tweeted this:

Drafted only a year before, Demar was still carving out his niche. Keep in mind, the shooting guard was only averaging 8.9 points that season.

Fast forward seven years, and Demar is a two-time all star and a member of the U.S Olympic team. When Demar re-signed with the Raptors this week, he said this:

“Since I’ve been here, my whole goal, since I first got here... to make this whole city and this whole country be known. It’s like we always got the short end of the stick. I always took pride and passion in wanting to change that.”

This attitude and passion is exactly why we're talking about the Toronto Raptors in a finance blog.

If you are reading this, you know that we help Canadians build a better financial future. Every day we speak with people across this country who have been mistreated by the financial system. Many of these people have suffered financial difficulties that were beyond their control. There isn't a day that goes by where we hear about dozens of Canadians getting 'the short end of the stick'.

While we don't like to toot our own horn, we relate to Demar. We want to take to make waves in the financial world. We are giving a chance to those that have been told 'No' over and over. With our f.i.t program, we help teach the financial skills we should be learning in high school. The end result is better credit, and the knowledge to use that power wisely. We are proud and passionate about empowering people from coast to coast. If you're looking for a second chance (or even a first chance, rookie!), then find out more today.
