I think on the offensive end it really is the closest thing out there to what Kawhi epitomized that Raptors season. It's no herky jerky, it's not blazing speed. It's not dramatic/fancy ball skills or passing. It's not bruising.

It's settling back, taking a top defender one-on-one. It's taking high IQ angles to get around to basket for layup or at least a high percentage foul. It's keeping the ball tight and being one step ahead of defender with simple dribbling, and then reacting quick with a well-times hitch or spin here or there.

Watching him is a complete joy ... and it really really makes me want to see him go down to West 4th Street Court (NYC, sorry) so I can hang out on the fence and watch him play some blacktop ball.


Great post. I really appreciate watching players like DDR and Doncic who aren't blow by guys but just seem to play at a smooth, controlled speed, they get an angle, get a guy on their hip, find ways to get where they want on the floor and usually end up with shots they like.

Whats up guys, I've been MIA for a while. It's been a pleasure having DeRozan on the team.

Better to be in MIA than MIA.

Yes it is fun watching those guys work. It is just awesome to see the fundamentals. Being an amazing athlete is nice, just ask Jordan, but his fundamentals are what made him so fun too watch.

Nice article. I think we all learned that DDR is better than we thought. I think he has known since being in SA how versatile his game can be too. He really is a more athletic but smaller Paul Pierce. Just really an any era fundamental type player. So much fun to watch.
