DeRozan is a STUD. Period. He was since highschool, in college, and now in the NBA. People saying he hit his ceiling after WTF 3 seasons in the NBA?.. whining how apparently players don't improve after their third year, and that handles cant improve if you dont already have them.... moaning and groaning about his extension when he got it, how apparently he didnt show any signs of improvement last season... and the rest of the loon brigade gets to eat some crow. It is sweet. I still remember back to the draft when people were arguing that Terrence Williams and Geralnd Henderson would be better players and should be taken over DeRozan :lol:

Good article, nice to read articles on DeRozan the person as well. Great kid.

I was a bit surprised when I read that Demar is a introverted person. I like that in basketball players. More basketball , less partying.

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.


looks like its that time of the month for you. I mean, SOME people on this board are just so sensitive. SOME people have no life at all. But obviously I'm not talking about you when i say SOME people. I'm just writing a blog in response to your comment, my reply is not related to yours at all. /s

Considering you wanted him to increase his three's in other threads, it's only logical to assume your whole statement was without a doubt genuine. So yeah...

Multiple people have issues detecting your "sarcasm", therefore the issue must lie with the multiple people not the single source.

T-Ross the Boss wrote:If DeMar wants to be a consistent 20 PPG scorer on non-abysmal efficiency, he should probably learn how to shoot the 3 already. Think about it. What part of a game can a ref NOT take away? Shooting. He can take away a good player's ability to drive and draw fouls.

He can't take away a good player's ability to shoot the ball in the hoop. With the way the Raptors are getting beat down by the refs, I feel DeMar would do better as a player if he minimized his driving and worked on shooting more.

DeMar works hard and has improved. And compared to most of the other players on our crappy roster he looks great. Lets not let these fuzzy articles convince us that he has proved something that he hasn't yet. He is not an all-star yet, let alone on the way to being at that level consistently. I can't remember the last game that DeMar carried us through and we won because of only him (Utah game was close). Let alone being able to see what his impact could be during the playoffs because we are crappy enough not to get there. This is not meant to be a knock on DeMar, I like him, I think he could be those things but he's not yet. It needs to happen before we should act like it happened, there is a LONG way to go and a lot of moments that I hope come, preferably sooner than later.

A great read, thanks for posting, dagger. As a fan it's just what you want to hear about a drafted player. No whining, no entitlement, just hard work and a goal to put the team back on the NBA map. I love DD.

Thanks for posting this dagger! I really like knowing what a player is like away from the court too. He seems like a cool guy.

Kiara was LittleOzzy.

Too soon?
