This might seem like an odd choice for the Toronto Raptors guard. Throughout his nine years in the NBA, DeRozan has always seemed to care. He cares about refining his game. He cares about the city of Toronto. He cares about being overlooked, having made an almost annual ritual out of responding to Sports Illustrated’s top 100 player rankings. In Manson’s book, though, he has found insight that applies directly to his job. “It just shows you all the successful people in the world are successful because they didn’t give a f—,” DeRozan told CBS Sports. “Not in a malicious way, but more so taking risks, being OK with failing. Not giving a f— about failing. And with that comes success, because you’re not scared to fail.”
