I here you man that is why I feel bad for him if he were any good be would be a Durant type of franchise guy, not saying he would be that good just his approach leadership and stuff. Someone who is not in a major team but will stay.

DD's rebounding seems very overrated. The more I watch Raptors game, the more I realize that the only rebounds DD grabs are the defensive rebounds where 3 Raptors are around it and maybe only 1 player from the other team.

That is basically how rebounding works. I think other than Lowry, our wings/guards rebounding are average.

Yes he sucks at rebounding but that is just one of many things that he can't do. He also can't play defence, pass, shoot, or drive to the basket. So really WTF is he actually doing out there?

This.

also, nothing you have said is ground breaking or earth shattering, you are just mirroring sentiments that have already been stated by other demar haters.

i wouldn't call them "demar haters", more like realists. Just because someone's not good and people point it out doesn't mean their haters.

Well maybe instead of reading Realgm, he should watch game tapes and improve as a player..or GTFO
I was wrong about DeMar DeRozan and he's going to be even better next year.

I believe those are the same criticism to Bargnani. 15 new threads a week + ...
Would people accept this as a reason?

As I recall, Milt Palacio and Rasual Butler also loved this city

This team doesn't have much of a core outside of its young players who are still developing. We're still a long ways away from competing for anything, much less being good enough to crack .500 and make the playoffs for once

'DD can't be apart from the core ' would indicate that you consider DeRozan an integral part of this team.

'DD can't be a part of the core ' tells us that you do not want DeRozan on this team going forward.

I would think your post might read DD can't be the first option or the man or something like that? If I read this you are say the guy should be sent to D League?

Right now our core is JV there is NO other player I would not trade on a good deal to make us better! For JV it would have to be a wowing trade because his up side is very Good and unknown.

I hope T Ross can get better with his 3 shooting consistency over time but, I don't see much else. He can't create, he can't drive, his D is way overrated, he is basically a very young Ray Allen that we must pray develops his shot?? Oh he can't drive like Ray Allen. We will see?

At this point, as long as he penetrates and draws fouls I'll be content. Waiting for Ross to be the clear-cut starter..one day..

derozan is not the problem. I will evaluate him more harshly once we have bargs gone, and maybe fields. This team could have been solid if not for stupid decisions like resigning bargnani and etc. Derozan improves every year and can be a solid guard, but I think he can be apart of the core, but not the guy, just a complementary player. We need a franchise player.

We dont have any core players right now. JVal has got some potential, but unsure how that plays out.

Everyone else is blah...
