United wants DeMar DeRozan’s daughter to fly free for yelling at Heat game

United Airlines offers Fly Chicago Bulls Star DeMar DeRozan’s 9-year-old daughter Dia, in Miami for the team’s play-in tournament game against the Heat on Friday after going viral for his in-game scream during the Bulls’ 109-105 win over the Toronto Raptors earlier this week.

Dia drew national attention Wednesday when he screamed from Scotiabank Arena as Raptors players lined up for free throws during the Bulls’ thrilling 19-point comeback. The Raptors shot 18 of 36 from the charity stripe in the elimination game and lost, with many crediting Dear’s unique approach, with Raptors forward Scotty Barnes admitting that Dear’s screams “had to make an impact.”

But when his father advised him not to attend Friday’s game because of school, the Chicago-based United wanted to change his mind.

“The flight is on us. What do you say, DeMar DeRozan? We’d love to take DiMar’s talent to South Beach,” United tweeted in response to DeMar.

As of early Friday afternoon, there was no word on whether Dyar would accompany his father to the original game. The winner between the Bulls and the Heat secures the No. 8 seed and advances to the NBA playoffs and will face the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks.
