I wonder what team DD would fit on the best? I always here that if the Raps traded for Gay, him and DD would duplicate themselves. So, what is a better fit for DD than the Raps

About a 1% chance of this happening given the extension we signed him to

JR at least has some consideration for the All-Star team

This season comparison JR is better than DeRozan in Total rebound percentage, assist percentage, steals percentage, block percentage, etc. Only advantage is DD has a higher TS% with .511 comapred to Smith's .496. Thing is JR has a higher usage percentage as well...and has shown that he is capable of taking the big shots, such as game winners. JR Smith also actually displays his athleticism and has better ball handling ability. All he needs is discipline and guidance from a good coach.

JR all the way tbh.

Meh, people just expect too much from Demar, when in reality hes just not that good. Hes forced to be our go-to guy because this team just **** sucks and has no talent.

Everybody liked Demar as a rookie. Some of us wanted to trade him after year 2 while there was still a buzz and we had a better idea of what he was and what he would probably be. The stagnation was likely, the typical 3rd-year jump was unlikely. BC betting on him making a 4th-year jump and outplaying 4/$40 (the only reason to extend rather than wait, he could not have forced a 5th year on any case) was PREPOSTEROUS.
