3. Points Per Game (21.6) - 2nd All Time

When it comes to points per game, DeMar DeRozan stands only behind George Gervin on the Spurs' all-time list. Obviously, the longevity of a given career plays a big part in this statistic, since it's easier to average 21 points per game over a three-year span than, say, a 19-year span.

Still, DeRozan's scoring average is impressive considering he just narrowly makes the top 10 in minutes per game with the Spurs all time. His average is just ahead of David Robinson, who averaged 21.1 points per game in his 14-year career. His former teammate, LaMarcus Aldridge, currently stands at 7th, averaging 19.5.

DeRozan has been one of the league's most prolific scorers since 2010 and has only added to his offensive repertoire over the years. With the Bulls this season, he's scoring 26.3 points per game through 42 games played, the sixth-most in the league.
