dunno but it shouldn't be derozan. Unless we want another repeat of the Utah game in overtime where they cleared out for Demar and all he brought was a bizarre twirling spin move shot from nowhere near close enough to the basket to be worrying about bizarre twirling spin moves. That thing was embarrassing to watch

don't need a closer anyways rather just leave the other team guessing

That was actually a very unusual move, but you can't deny that it almost went in. DD does make tough fadeaways a lot, so I wouldn't say that it was a bad shot.

I think we might want to hold on to the hypes, and allow him to take his time to develop as a good player.


True, but I was referring to his baseline jumper rather than the jumpers he takes from the foul-line or elbow time to time which he doesn't connect on nearly as much.

I just went through Jonas' shot chart for the 8 games, and he's currently shooting 3-for-8 on 10+ feet baseline jumpers. 38% isn't that bad of a shooting percentage.

imho, we don't have that guy yet...Lowry's good but, I don't feel like he can get off a shot whenever he wants, he kind of just takes the lanes that are given to him.

Raps are still learning how to play the first 3 quarters of a game. Next will be 4th Q ball, where everything changes. And if they ever make the playoffs, yikes.

I voted Derozan just because Lowry is injured but KLow is definitely the most clutch player on our team.
if David could go against Goliath with a stone I can at Nas and Jigga,both for the throne

I dont think DD has ever hit a game winner and we gave him many chances throughout the year.. same with bargs
The end of game play is either an iso for Bargs or DD and it never ends well

Lowry should be our closer

Hit Em Up's avatar reminded that Kleiza did a pretty good job in the most important time. I would go for Lowry as main closer and DD as second one (specially if we dont need a 3pointer) but Kleiza isnt such bad candidate coming after those two. Bargs doenst look good at finishing.
