Just wrapped up a meeting with a crew from Raptors TV about producing a cool feature this season for you guys.

Basically, I just want all of you to see how I’m getting adjusted to NBA life both on and off the court. You’re going to see me putting in work as I get ready for the season, but I want to make sure you see aspects of me off the floor in my everyday life too.

This is something I always wanted to do. To share what I go through, to show everybody what it’s really like. I want to show you I'm working in the gym twice a day, but I also know you want to see what I'm doing for fun away from the court!

I know I would always look at a lot of NBA players and wish I knew what they were doing after the game or after practice. What are they doing at home or when they go out to get something to eat? But now, with stuff like Twitter out there, it’s so much easier for me to share my life with my fans when I’ve got that time and doing this “mini-show” this season, I’m going to get to show you guys even more.

As for right now, I’m starting to settle in here in Toronto. I’ve found a place to live and I’m working on getting all that settled today. I may let the cameras in for a tour so you guys can all check it out when I’m set up and everything.

I’ve got to see more of the city since it’s Film Festival week. We went out with Steve Nash about a week ago and that was great. Just being around the whole atmosphere and really feeling the vibe from everybody – sometimes I forget I’m a rookie in Toronto! And that when I go out, I’m going to get recognized. That’s still a little strange!

Everybody’s been greeting me like “welcome to the city,” and telling me where the good restaurants are and everything. I went to the mall about a week ago and it was crazy! You’d think a pop star or something was walking through the mall!

It’s been a lot of fun, but my main focus is the season. I’m still working on my overall game, trying to get better at everything that I do. I don’t want to come into the season with limitations on my game.

Remember, stay tuned for more of me on Raptors NBA TV and Raptors.com. Until then you can follow me on Twitter.

Guess he's getting some pointers from Bosh on making videos

But in all honesty, its good to hear he's getting comfortable in his adopted city and hopefully it will pay off on the court.

Demar Derozan to have his own segment on RapsTv this season

I hope this isn't a distraction from what he needs to do this season. He's gonna be followed around all season i guess, showing how he adjusts to the NBA.

Twitter is designed to handle only so many characters in a "tweet". You have to be creative sometimes. It doesn't necessarily reflect his grammar skills.

the mini-show he's doing isn't really the Bosh type youtube videos, its a show he's doing for/with RaptorsTV, so its 1 of those official team shows that you can pretty much tell will be just like a periodic look into his rookie season, probably just cameras following him at key points in the season with him being interviewed about those times, so he really doesn't need any of those Bosh type pointers
