DeMar DeRozan already has a mural in San Antonio (via IG/souplaws) pic.twitter.com/YHLmofS9lb— SLAM (@SLAMonline) August 17, 2018
The mural was painted by local artist Nik Soupe, who has been responsible for many other murals over the years, including of the Spurs. (You can see more of his work by checking out his Instagram page.)
You can also check out Rudy’s Seafood’s Facebook page see below for the evolution of the mural.
As tough as the trade from the only team he ever knew has been on him, DeRozan couldn’t have received a warmer welcome to San Antonio than he already has — and he hasn’t even set foot in front of the fans yet! He will likely receive the one of the loudest ovations on opening night (that is if/when Manu Ginobili enters), and if he hasn’t felt at home yet by then, he surely will once he enters the Spurs court in front of one of the most loyal fan bases in all sports.
