DeRozan is a much better passer than Maggette was. Higher assist rate, and nearly double that of his turnover rate. Maggette's turnover rate was higher than his assist rate. It's a good comparison though, and i'm also not really sure how it's an insult or takes anything away from DeMar. Maggette never winning anything has more to do with him never playing on good teams. His Clippers career was basically him, Brand and a whole bunch of mediocre players.
Let me put it this way - DD is the skinny version of Corey Maggette. DD may turn the ball over less and is a better 3pt shooter, but doesn't rebound as much, get to the line as much, is less efficient and isn't as good defensively (and Maggette was never much of a defender, but was stronk). Corey maintained his success for a long time from the time he came into the league.
Yeah man, because when I'm trying to build a championship team, the first thing that comes to my mind is Dion Waiters. Give it a freaking rest. Nobody here is calling DeMar a franchise cornerstone, but he sure as hell is a lot better than you give him credit for.
Maggette was a good player, and DD is a good player. But when you think of building a team that competes to get to the conference finals each your, do you think to yourself, "this team really needs the abilities of Corey Maggette on the wing to make us a contender!"
