    The 'reach for the sky' defense is even worse than the 'matador' defense... so much for a defensive specialist!

    Don't worry though. Next good game by him or Raptors they'll all be back.

    It's so frustrating though. In the first half, I was extremely impressed, thinking he was finally going to prove me wrong. Then, by the end of the game:

    28 points (10/18), but too ISO-centric down the stretch
    0 rebounds
    3 assists
    3 turnovers
    terrible defense that negates most of his scoring

    Oh we're still here I guess the point we were making was that 4 rebounds per game (actually 3.8 so far this year) from a shooting guard is not that bad. Would one more make you feel better?

    4.8 would put him in the top 10 for guards (includes PG and SG) and would be better yes. He's currently the 29th ranked guard. With his athleticism, it shouldn't be a stretch for him to out-rebound Ricky Rubio (4.5).

    I understand your frustration. However, you should remember that Demar is paid to be a scorer. He is a shooting guard. Now some should actually start talking about others who are supposed to be rebounders......*we got one rebound in the whole 4th Quarter vs GSW*.

    I can't wait for you guys to start pointing the finger at JV. You want to ship everyone else out so you can put that BIG bullseye on his back (just like you're doing with Demar).

    Demar didnt cost us this game. Actually, if you watch closely you'll see that he's usually the player keeping us in these games!

    The offence and defence broke and collapsed when it mattered. JV is useless at getting consistent deep positioning and is not good at setting screens (pretty basic stuff for a big guy).

    FYI - Drummond had 18 rebounds and 10 points in 22 minutes in their win against Miami. JV gets 6 rebounds, 0 assists and 8 points in 26 minutes against GSW.

    Hansborough can't create a shot for himself. Rudy Gay had 0 assists. Kyle had a good game, but couldn't keep track of Curry when it mattered most. Demar left Thompson open too many times and paid the price.

    The blame can go around.....and from where i stand - I see a lot more blame for other players who are supposed to be better than they're playing.

    1 more rebound per game brings him into the top 10. If you really think about it, that's not a huge stretch for him to work on in the future.....just saying.

    Look - you guys are the only ones saying Demar is a finished product (he is who he is, he won't get better, blah blah blah). Most fans realize he still has areas to improve on. If it makes you feel better to call him out on his weaknesses while ignoring his strengths....then have at it.

    No one is laying sole blame on Demar but where were his 3.8 boards yesterday? The best players make key plays in games; a stop, a steal, a rebound, something that stops the floodgates. No one made that play yesterday but the team leaders (which includes Demar) should take the most blame for those situations.

    1 more isn't a lot, so why doesn't he do it? He's currently 29th. That is below average for a guard.

    And what strengths do we ignore? He can score but is neither particularly efficient or proficient. If you aren't elite at one thing you damn well better bring more tricks to the stable.

    I started out that post saying he impressed me in the first half, and I didn't blame DeRozan for anything.

    I also don't put DeRozan in the same 'should trade' category as Gay/Lowry/Novak, so I'm hardly pushing for him to be shipped out, even if MU goes ahead with a tank.

    However, DeRozan is paid to be a basketball player. Given his salary and role on this team, he should be expected to do a lot more than score. Right now he can't be consistently counted on to do anything but score, and his defense is often so bad that it limits the net impact of his scoring.

    Of course this is the key reason they lost hey,,,,,, or is it just about being petty in calling people who support the kid?

    That aside, unless it's a big who has one of his primary tasks being that of rebounding, you do understand that rebounding is a team function, right? Would you have had him leaving Thompson alone more out on the 3 pt line, so he could give you the rebounds you want? Until the TEAM collapse in the fourth, and the Curry/Thompson barrage it allowed, he did a great job of containing Thompson as well as chewing up Thompson's supposed defense, but yeah, gloat over your opinion of his rebounding being justified over one game, after 16 games of being improved there too. pfffffffffffft
