convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

Hello Raptors fans!

I just finished getting some shots up here in Las Vegas and I'm now in my hotel room watching SportsCenter and coming at you with my latest blog.

Summer League so far has been great, fun and exciting. It's been a huge learning process for me and I'm just soaking it all in.

I can't think of one highlight yet, but it's been a thrill to get out there and throw on a Raptors jersey and get out doing what I love to do.

But that doesn't mean it's not hard work. I know whatever my weaknesses are at the end of Summer League, that's what I'm going to spend the rest of my summer working to improve on.

My family was out for the first couple of games, which took a lot of pressure off. They've been watching me for years and it just feels good to give them the chance to come out and see me play - especially now that I'm in the NBA.

If you follow me on Twitter, you probably saw me say Vegas is wack when you're 19. I've been coming here for a while playing AAU or in showcases and now here in the NBA and it's great BUT, you don't get to do a lot of the things you'd get to do if you were 21. Other than that, it's still fun.

Back to Twitter for a second, you've probably seen my request for a new nickname and Raptors fans have been great with those! One fan wrote me with "DeMarksman." That caught my eye and I really like that! D2, for my initials, was also a good one. It's kind of hard picking one right now, but as we get closer to the regular season I'll feel a lot more comfortable choosing what the name is. I want to have the best nickname for this upcoming season and to the fan who helps give it to me, there might be a special prize coming your way!

You fans have been a huge support to me even before I was drafted. The Toronto fans were really encouraging and appreciative of my game and really wanted me to join the Raptors. I felt a great vibe coming from Canada and all the fans. It just feels good being a part of a team and a having a country backing you already and the season hasn't even started.

I've also got to say, the team's looking real good with the moves made this summer! When you've got an All-Star like Chris Bosh already and then you keep adding more talent, it's showing everyone how good of a team we have a chance to be this year.

Talk soon,

- DeMar

If I was a rookie, I'd only want to play for the Raptors because of that. Seriously, the no drinking until you're 21 is such a ******ed law.

Self-conscious guy. The only thing I don't like is that he's going to pick his nickname himself, but I guess that's how it's done these days..

Yeah I didn't like that either...but following that he was giving Canada more love than I've ever seen a basketball player give...So he can do whatever he wants.

He can change his nickname every day for all I care now.

Although I have a twitter account I don't know how to send a message to DeMar's page telling him the nick name...Could you tell me how to do so?

I don't have twitter myself but when I read sometimes I see the @ comments, so people do it all the time. Should be in the FAQ.

If you're a pro athlete you shouldn't be drinking anyways.
If you're pro LIFE you shouldn't be drinking, I admit drinking now and then it good and all, especially drunk chicks... gotta lovem... but you'll get much further in life minus the wobbley pops.
