DeMar DeRozan opened up about his battles with LeBron James in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

DeRozan, as a member of the Toronto Raptors, never managed to defeat James, who was playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers, in the postseason.

DeRozan explained the playoff mindset of James during his appearance on the “The Old Man and The Three” podcast.

“It’s tough to get past this motherf***er. To see him come to the West and be able to do the same thing, it is a statement to his greatness,” DeRozan said.
