The playoffs are won and lost based on star calls. LAL is getting those right now. You add a borderline star like DeRozan to this team and we are adding numerous star calls once the playoffs hit. He is good enough and has enough name recognition and clout to get tons of tacky fouls in the playoffs, not to mention his game is attacking downhill.
We are not a Robert Covington away from contending, but we may be one star-calls type player away from a surprising postseason. I continue to think Demar is that guy.
Maybe but Miami is also beating other teams with more "stars." They have a bunch of quality lower recognition guys.
