We are 11-12 with Anderson in the lineup yet he shoots to much, yet there is another player who shoots a lot out of the flow of the offence which has cost us GAMES yet gets praised around here.

Anderson is a bit of a chucker but Casey is partially responsible for that too. He's a good player though - contributes in many facets

How does this 30 year old chucker with no future with the team, chucking shot after shot help the development of the more important players? Smart GMs get rid of players like this so that the younger players get more shots. In Toronto, players like him are encouraged to chuck, while Lowry is told to stop shooting too much. Nothing makes sense with this team.

All you idiots defending Anderson ... it's baffling. The crazy thing is that more people have called Lowry a chucker than Anderson. Anderson is the very definition of a chucker. A perfectly fine rotation player, to come in and give you an offensive spark. But he is not a good NBA player by any means. Demar is a lot better.

THIS!


Honest to god, right now Anderson and Lowry are the ONLY ones who even TRY to drive to the net. Derozan has fallen in love with his mid-range jumpshot, and we all know about Fields. Jose is Jose.

This team is awful. Anderson is not the one to blame.

A chucker is a chucker regardless of who does the chucking . You don't seem to mind a chucker as long is it's you're guy doing the chucking . Also , chucking doesn't develop players , it just leads to a false semse of worth and more chucking .

IMO AA is 16-18 min a night role player but he still has a better all around game than DeStupid . DD has been gifted a starters role and mins since he was drafted . He's the most coddled player we've ever had and yet after 8000 plus mins in this league he's still getting out played by a D league scrub .

Again, how does Anderson shooting so much benefit the Raptors? Can you people use your heads? Going forward, what benefit is there to have this guy act like he's the franchise player? There is none. The Raptors are not a playoff team and the guy is 30 years old. I would rather have Ed Davis go 3-20 from the field than have Alan Anderson go 11-12. At least you're letting Ed Davis learn from mistakes. All Alan Anderson is doing is trying to earn a new contract. The Raptors may as well bench all their young players and put out a lineup of Anderson, Kleiza, Bagnani, Calderon, and Fields and tell them all to chuck away, since they don't seem to care about developing players.

Hey man, the guy can shoot. It's no coincidence that the Raps had a resurgence once AA returned from injury. The team wasnt a laughingstock for a few weeks at least.

How many more let down performances do you need out of Demar? His game is midrange jumpers off screens. When he's bricking, what can he give you? Poor defense. He's terrible on iso situations, ineffective against any decent defender and can't break down a solid team defense. He looks like he's playing in slow motion when trying to create something. His post game showed great promise but where the hell is it? While AA is no star, he actually impacts games for us. Hits 3s, decent playmaking, and has a quicker first step than Demar. How sad is it that I trust a D-leaguer more than DD? He does get trigger happy during unecessary moments which I really hate too. Either way, I'd rather give both their minutes to Ross.

You don't develop young players by giving them an unlimited amount of shots unless you believe that player has the skill to develop into a primary scorer on a quality team .

Players like Davis should be developed into the role you invision them filling down the road and for Ed that's and energy big off the bench who can give you 15-20 mins .

Really can't believe people would choose Anderson a d-league scrub chucking away for a contract over a younger 23 year old sg who until recently was playing dynamite. He's going through a bad stretch, I'm sure he'd be out of it soon. No wonder I only have like 15 posts here in the past three years.

How is a guy shooting 37FG% a great shooter and "benefiting the team"??? If he gets hot, okay but more often then not he shoots 6-17 in like 20+ minutes. The guy is the new Weems where everyone is in love with some chucker who only looks to get his. He takes stupid contested shots also early in the shot clock.

Shot location is the difference, but same as Bargnani, they are the one to blame when they are the one who bails out the play.

The guy is getting paid the MINIMUM CONTRACT and he's one of our best players. There are tons of other players on the team who should be getting criticized but Alan Anderson is definetly not one of them.

You don't think Ed Davis has surpassed that energy role by now? This isn't last year. The guy has shown that he can score in the post, and knows how to make smart passes. His next step is to develop his game in the post. Let him do it.

I don't blame Alan Anderson, hell any player would be as selfish as him if the coach let him. Dwane Casey holds Ross accountable for his questionable shots, but not Alan Anderson because he's a journeyman who's seen it all loolll
