    If DD can shoot/score like that all year, I'll ignore weak rebounds and assists.... hell, even mediocre defense will get a pass.

    don't worry about him, its just a matter of time before he gets used to to his body,he was ripping through the defense like crazy you should have seen him but he just didn't have enough to finish it off. if i were you i wouldn't worry too much.

    You know despite my criticism and doubt of DeRozan, I really, really, really want to see him succeed and I would love to be as wrong about him as I was about Bargnani.

    With that said, I am really happy on his showing today BUT (because there is always a but - lol) I reserve the right for skepticism until after the All-Star break. The issue with DeRozan has always been consistency. He started 2011-12 on a tear from 3 and ended 12-13 on a tear - in between, not so much. He has shown stretches of using his significant size advantage over most SG on the glass but overall he has been average at best. Same with creating for others and going strong to the hoop.

    Anyways, it is a great start. I hope consistency is something he brings to his game this season. Regardless of if MU keeps him or trades him, his success is vital to the Raptors immediate future.

    Ya - fields. Did some good things .. but shot looked as ugly as ever, so not sure if the good stuff he brings will outweigh the fact we may have to play 4 on 5 when hes out there.

    Otherwise, good thoughts
    Yeah I missed Fields and Acy.

    Fields - Looked better than he did last year but the elbow is still suspect. His jumper has a big time hitch in it. He was alright though; made a few nice plays and guarded Gay effectively when he was on him.

    Acy - The fact that I forgot him the first time probably isn't a good sign. I was expecting him to be flying around the court considering he's on the fringe of the rotation but I can't remember a single play involving him from the afternoon beside a long jumper that wasn't close near the end of the game.

    He missed a lot of shots that he would normally make. Game was very scrappy.
    I wouldn't worry at all.


    If Austin Daye continues to play like that, and know his role in the offence, then I think he will be a welcome addition to the bench. Same with Augustin. They did exactly what was expected of them, and nothing more.

    Raps have enough 3s and 4s.
    They have enough PGs too but I like the versatility of stone and what he could bring to the lineups when paired with another PG. There would be little to no defensive worries like the Calderon/Lowry/JL3 combos of last season.
    Ah yes, quite true. My mind is actually leaning a bit towards Stone, whether it's Stone or Wright, I wouldn't mind at all. Morais has been a non-factor so far, we'll see how he factors in pre-season.

    DeMar's handle was a MAJOR surprise to me, he refined his post-game with better/quicker footwork as well, but the handle looked tight. I mean, shot-creator-worthy-handle-tight.

    Know who else was impressive? Buycks and Ausustine. Ujiri made some good moves to shape the roster with what he had at his disposal.

    Even though its Stones spot to lose I cant sleep on Wright, he may finally get his end of the bench spot.

    6/25 is bad. Bad because if you go 6/15, your assist totals should then start to really increase.

    Nothing worse than a blackhole man.... nothing.

    I'm petty sure stats are for people who don't play ball.

    Guys, real talks calm down
    he didn't look comfortable out there. his body kept slowing him down, once he gets used to to the the extra weight it'll all be better, give it some time.

    Dont worry Rudy will put doubters to rest come season time and we'll be happy to have him it was just glorified practise after all I doubt he took it serious and was playing around on his possessions. DeMar and JV however they go HAM in every game they play I bet they could be playing against bed ridden cancer kids and still light up the stat line.
