    Default Derozan has entered NBA MVP Rankings !

    Lowry has missed the cut this time, dropping out.
    BUT Derozan has been included and at number 9!
    Great to see them also recognising DD mass 'underatedness' mentioning it in the paragraph.

    Lowry is our MVP 1000 times over. Derozan is still a semi black hole out there on most nights.

    You Go DeMar! not going to win but its a great recognition. Lowry/DeRozan being more important to the team is debatable..

    Good on DeRozan. It's deserved and about time he gets some recognition.

    Also I'm very tempted to make it a forum rule banning any and all avatars, references and mentions containing riff raff. :P

    Easy there big guy. I'm sure lots of people with eyes would argue just as strongly that your ocular devices are the ones malfunctioning. Respect other posters' opinions, or at least make it an objective debate.

    Good on DeMar.

    I do find it crazy how much weight is placed on PPG overall and one game in particular.

    DeRozan has proven me wrong on some things. The main one remains though. I'd like to see him make a giant frittata on my face.





    And despite DD's last game, Lowry is the MVP and engine of this team.

    Not going to argue your last point, but I don't think there is any question about who has improved the most from the start of the season to this point...or is there?

    I haven't checked the numbers. DD still slips into hero mode sometimes, but he seems to be playing a much more heads up type of game, whether looking for assists or finding cracks in the other team that he can exploit.

    Very happy for him.

    Glad to hear you own up Matt ... still not there and the guys finally getting some recognition. As much as i agree lowry is out MVP even thought Demar is the best player, Lowry could do what he does without demar and vice versa.

    We should be very happy no matter whose entered the MVP top 10 from Raptors land. But what you said its really stupid, only create nothing but an internal contradiction.

    derozan had made some strides. but MVP? as soon as he can gain more consistency, be better at shot selection and not be generally inefficient, i'm all for it.

    Lowry and Derozan should share the spot. There's no question that KL has been the most consistent player and the biggest reason behind the Rap's success, but Derozan's been stepping up in other facets of the game immensely.

    I think how they are trying to evaluate a player's impact on their respective team is pretty neat. PIE as they call it. I'll have to read about it more to understand how they are calculating this.

    However, I do think that Derozan has been playing well this year. I think he's becoming a lot more aggressive this year than in the past. Confidence and his abilities as well as his consistent work ethic has played dividends. I hope that he continues this pace not just through this year, but for years to come (in a Raptors uniform, unless he gets traded...)

    I'm hoping for another MVP type performance against the Clippers tomorrow night at the ACC!

    Just took in that DD is averaging 22 points, 5 rebounds,4 Assist 1 Steals and 1 block. Not bad for the 9th overall pick in the draft.

    Pretty bad Minnesota drafted Johnny Flynn and Ricky Rubio before Demar and Steph Curry . They could be a lot better team right now.

    DeMar over Rubio would've been a major reach and no GM would've done it at the time. Besides, Rubio even without a shot is an average starting PG. But Flynn over Curry made no sense back then.
