Article: DeMar's life in hoops.. (and future wife) 

Post#1 » by dagger » Fri Nov 16, 2012 8:01 pm

A great read on DeMar

You can see why the team would have erred on the side of extending him.

Aside from a tremendous work ethic, he's looking to buy a house for him and his fiancé Kiara - a basketball fanatic herself.

Learn about how he developed his post up game last summer, too,

Don't let the link fool you. It's actually a Sportsnet Magazine article. Goodwin sports is his agent/rep.

Best quote in the article:

“I read what’s written about him and I just want to go on all the blogs or whatever and write, ‘You have no idea what you’re talking about,’” Kiara says.
Remember what matters. Move the world toward peace by being kind, generous in forgiveness of others, being grateful for what is, and taking full advantage of what matters most.

This was a very very good read.


At only 23 and
in his fourth NBA season, he might be that
guy already


He's not that guy yet though. He did in fact improve in every major category, and hopefully he keeps improving. I expect big things from DD this year.

I just finished reading it on my phone a well written piece. I just love the kids drive and you can see it on the court he's looking to impose his will out there. People over the summer were saying how he doesn't deserve to be on the select team and that BC had something to do with it or when he plays in the Drew League he isn't doing anything else. Those people so far are being proven very wrong and this article emulates that. What funny is that the same people dissing him have turn a 180 and have changed their tune from he's not going to get better he's 23 to he's just 23 he still has room to get better. People here need to be patient and also need to use their brains around here.

Why do you assume I meant you?

Most of you doesn't mean all of you. Like I said earlier in another thread, a lot of people here have trouble with words... They read into them what they like.

A well written piece.

On Kiara,
she can be heard
calling out plays and defensive rotations
from her seat behind the basket. (“You were
all over our game tape,” former coach Jay
Triano would always tell her.)
I've never been able to catch this on TV or when I go, has anyone else?

No, but I'll watch more carefully. She might be sitting close to Nav Bhattia - SuperFan. He always has a couple of nice women in his row, and you would expect him to attach himself to DeMar's "family".

No, the wording is precise. Most. Not all.

Don;t be offended because I didn't mean you, although if you want me to reconsider...
