K seriously Demar played like garbage last year so people had a right to rag on him all summer.

And he's still too weak to draw the foul, nor does he have any blow by speed when he drives.

I don't understand how you could say the first part is wrong, he really didn't play very well at all and the stats support it. This year is another story.

but David5773, i got ur back. he didn't mean you. and i agree- i bet Demar's lady is lurking... maybe even Landry's... just sayin... :)


Yea I thought I was the only one thinking this... I don't know why he sounded so mad, anyways I moved on.

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.


People weren't calling extending DeMar an error, they were calling the amount of the extension an error. And it still is because he hadn't done enough to warrent such a huge annual salary. There's a salary cap in place so you can't overpay every player on the team without hurting all the moves that follow.

The league is full of great guys with great attitudes and great work ethics, it doesn't mean that they all deserve huge contracts that don't match their abilities.

Luckily it looks like its working out, 23 years old with a 19 PER, and his extension doesnt kick in till next year. He needs to keep this up for the season and his 9.5 becomes a pretty good deal.

19.0 PER? He's currently at 16.5. Big difference.

You can interpret my words the way you want, but my position is that extending him now, as opposed to waiting for next summer, was a gamble financially.

In reality, though, that's the same thing. I don't think he's worth that much, but I don't doubt someone would've given him the money. I think any offer significantly below $35 mil/4 yrs would've meant no extension.

Can't say I agree with that. He's clearly a great kid with a great work ethic but he played at a below average level for 3 full seasons and it wouldn't be tough to argue that he regressed from season 2 to season 3. From that large sample size and that regression, BC, as he usually does, extends him at far above market value instead of letting the situation play out and allowing the market to dictate his value.

He plays hard and he's obviously athletic but he's still poor defensively despite always giving a solid effort. And he has played well so far this season but that's only a 10 game sample size but he looked improved at the beginning of last season as well and we both know how that turned out.

I can't imagine that BC couldn't have extended DD for far less $$$ or saved $$$ by letting the season play out. Now he's just another overpaid rotation player just like many others on the roster.
