    Great video, but no offense the word "Greatness" shouldn't be there. DeRozan is a good player but he's nowhere near great.

    Title should just be "DeMar DeRozan".
    The obvious intent of the video is to showcase Demars work-ethic and tireless efforts to get better. To be GREAT.

    I got it Tdot.

    its amazing how on this forum saying DeRozan eventually leads to a 50+ page beef with the fans that support him and the fans that either dont like him or want more from him. Here we go again.

    Dont take away from the great video the OP made...

    No matter what you say, very few to no "back-end rotation guys" can put up 18 and 4 on 44.5 fg%. He is a starter on the majority of teams in this league.

    It is way too easy to get bogged down by the negativity inherent in being a fan of a losing team. Sure, Demar isn't great, and maybe this team is destined for mediocrity with him as one of our best players, but hell, as long as he is on our team, why not enjoy some the tremendous things he can do on the court? Really enjoyed that montage.

    The point of the OP was to showcase a highlight video a fan made. It was NOT a referendum on Demar's ability. I'm not a big fan of Demar, but that does not mean I can't appreciate the time someone put into something.

    Good on ya'!

    sometimes you ask yourself if his team even has a future, the only thing you can do is log onto raptorsrepublic and get your hopes up. but so much negativity gets to your brain, weres the good vibes that are supposed to make you feel better and make you smile. ugh, offseason..

    I really think all signs point to DeMar being one of those players that plays better if he's on a good team.

    If he had actually been traded to the Clippers for Bledsoe like it was rumored for a while, we would've seen a very high level of play from him this season. It's a lot easier to get yours when the other team is far more concerned about CP3 throwing lob after lob to Blake Griffin.

    We saw a glimpse of that this year with DeRozan's improvements in efficiency (despite his volume/usage actually staying around the same) after the Gay trade:

    19.0 ppg (5.8 FTA, 45.3 FG%, 83.7 FT%, 31.3 3FG%)
    53.7 TS%
    24.6 USG%
    101.4 ORtg/103.7 DRtg
    2.8 apg
    3.4 rpg


    EDIT: Just realized I'm contributing to the derailing of this thread. OP I really liked the video, one of the few mixes I've seen where the highlights are actually timed with the music. I actually prefer this mix to those GameEntertainment ones, good job!
