THE unexpected player in the Chicago Bulls-Toronto Raptors basketball game on April 12, 2023 was DeMar’s baby daughter.

Diar DeRozan, 9, helped the Bulls pull the game back after a terrible performance by the Raptors at the free-throw line, possibly due to Diar’s loud wails.

Who is DeMar DeRozan’s daughter Diar DeRozan?

Diar is the daughter of American basketball star DeMar DeRozan, who plays small forward for the Chicago Bulls.

He is one of the most popular and highest earning players in the NBA.

At 1.87m tall, the player is in his 13th season of a long and successful career on the pitch.

He played basketball for the USC Trojans and was then drafted into the Toronto Raptors before moving on to the San Antonia Spurs and eventually the Chicago Bulls.

However, in the tense win-or-go home game with his former team, he was overshadowed by his own daughter, who was busy making a name for herself on the sidelines.

What was she doing during the Raptors vs Chicago game?

Diar DeRozan is being dubbed an “unsung hero” for the Bulls, who eventually won the game after a shaky start.

For over two hours, the 9-year-old’s piercing scream could be heard across the stadium whenever a Raptors player took a free throw.

Their timing was uncanny and devastating for the Toronto team – ESPN called it “perhaps the best free-throw defense in history.”

The Raptors made just 50% successful shots on the line, a measly 18-to-36, allowing Chicago to reclaim a win.

It was Toronto’s worst free-throw performance of the 2023 season and most missed shots in an elimination game since 1969.

“I kept hearing something during the game on free throws … I was fucking looking back, that’s my daughter screaming,” DeMar DeRozan said after the game, according to ESPN.

The six-time All-Star also told reporters his daughter banged herself into the front seat and talked her father into letting her skip school to watch it.

“I almost said no because she’s at home at school. But she kept asking. She just really wanted to come to the support,” explains DeMar.

“I said, ‘Okay, you can miss a day of school and come to a game.’ I’m glad I did that. I sure owe her some money.”

The Bulls’ unexpected late success allowed them to advance to the Miami Heat for another elimination game and a chance to make the playoffs.

Who is DeMar DeRozan’s wife and do they have any other children?

DeMar is married to Kiara Morrison, whom he has been with since their college years at the University of South Carolina.

The longtime couple married in 2013 and now have four daughters who are often seen at the games.

The two broke up for a period in 2017-2018 but later reconciled and got back together.

Her father was a professional basketball player – Kevin Morrison – and she inherited a love of the sport.

They met after one of his games in 2009 in DeMar’s only season at the University of Southern California.

He was a player for the USC Trojans after she reportedly impressed him with her knowledge of the game.
