Published 12/27/2021, 9:30 AM EST


Six-time champions Chicago Bulls registered their 20th win of the season against Indiana Pacers at home. DeMar DeRozan had another marvelous game to add to his tally, as he not only scored 24 points but was also a part of the winning side. This is one of his best seasons so far in the NBA as he is averaging 26.7 PPG in the league.

San Antonio Spurs traded DeMar DeRozan to Chicago Bulls in a sign-and-trade deal earlier this summer. Many didn’t rate this trade much, but DeRozan started his Bulls career with a bang. In his debut, DeRozan scored 17 points in his team’s win against the Detroit Pistons. He has massively improved the Bulls squad this season and continues to deliver.

The Bulls don’t have a roster such as the Nets and the Bucks, but they still have been in 2nd place behind the much-hyped Nets this season. DeRozan recently got MVP shouts from the audience in the Bulls’ most recent match. Fans have reacted to the MVP chants on Twitter.

NBA Twitter reacts to Chicago Bulls star DeMar DeRozan getting MVP shouts

DeRozan was taking free throws at the United Center when the fans of his team started to chant, ‘MVP, MVP, MVP’. The video of DeRozan getting MVP chants went viral on social media and NBA Twitter came up with some interesting reactions.

Here are some of the best reactions to the video.

DeRozan is in red hot form right now. Not just his numbers, he has also been amazing in carrying the Bulls this season. The Nets have one of the strongest rosters in the NBA and are on top of the Eastern Conference table. The Bulls, on the other side, don’t boast such a quality roster. DeRozan has turned around the season for the Bulls and if he continues performing, they could qualify for the playoffs after four seasons.

The Bulls last qualified for the playoffs in 2016-17 when they lost in the first round. Since then, they have failed to enter even the top 10 of the Eastern Conference. However, this time with an in-form DeRozan, they have a good chance of ending their 4-season playoff drought.
