    Good stuff guys. Nice work Jive. I didn't know he was playing so efficient and was dominating like that(50% of production). I really would love to pick up a player like Deandre Jordan. He's would be a beast if given time.

    I am a big fan of his though he is not quite on my top 10 list.

    Anyway living here in Los Angeles and being a Clippers fan, sorry guys/gals, I watch all of their games.

    Jordan is big and strong. He is a very effective shot blocker especially giving weak side help.

    However, his reading of offenses, court positioning in general on defense and lateral foot speed are all terrible at this point. His foot speed seems to me to be below average. His offense is none existent except for dunks. He can't shoot foul shots and I am being kind when I say that.

    Unfortunately he has a long way to go before he can have a net positive impact on either offense or defense on the court game in and game out.

    I like to do my share of analysis . I believe that demar will be a special player in the future due to his willingness to learn and improve. He has a lot of heart and it will show when he comes out next season.

    Going for 61.5% isnt to shabby either, haha. Knowing him though they are probably all dunks .

    Default Derozan is Working HARD, He Definitely is in the Running for Most Improved in 10-11

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IurRP4CPai4everyday when i check my twitter i see derozan tweets about how he is working on his game, always in the gym, getting better, then i saw some highlight tape of him in the drew league, he scored 39 pts in 12 minutes, there was probably crappy defence but 39 pts in 12 minutes is impressive, and im actually curious about how derozan will perform next season, he is my pick for MOST IMPROVED PLAYER IN 2010-11 SEASON

    when you have as much athleticism as him it shouldn't be difficult to score 39 pts aginst a school gym class. cause that's what this drew league seems like to me.

    He's playing alongside different types of players...from NBA to college to highshools to league teams. So, he's going against different style players. I still think that it's a good on what he did in the games. Most importantly, he's still putting in work and gettin' it in. Maturity. Amir is there, as well, working on his game, strength and conditioning. I respect that. They're not caring or focusing on all the trade talks of their "franchise player", Hedon't Turd-aglu and Jose, and if they are, they're not showing it.

    My pick is Andray Blatche for M.I.P. but I'm hoping all DD's hard work shows off in a big improvement.

    It looked like he hit that turn-around foul line jumper in Muggsy Bogue's face.

    Andray Blatche winning any indivisual award or any sort of recognition would be one of the worst thing to ever happen in the Nba.

    I'm pulling for DD to get better next year too. But summer leagues don't show you who can play, just who can't. I'm hoping if anything this summer boost his confidence and he shows up at camp wanting to kick ass.

    Default Build around DD

    I hope Bryan Colangelo realizes that he screwed up this franchise almost as bad as Babcock. by #1. Drafting Andrea Bargnani first and passing up Brandon Roy. #2. Basically giving Miami Chris Bosh by trading away Jermaine O'neal knowing his big ass contract was the key for Miami to Sign bosh. #3. Signing a useless Turk and giving him the worse contract in professional sports history! #4. Thinking Jose Calderon is a starter in the NBA and trading away T.J. Ford. #5. Making Jay Triano the head coach! Sorry, I know he's Canadian, but when your team is the worse defensive team in the league, it's time to pack your bags.

    I think Bryan Colangelo likes to overpay useless white guys to gigantic contracts! Kapono, Bargnani, Turkoglu, Calderon!

    If you want to make amends BC Start building around Derozan, Draft Avery Bradley to pair them up in the back court or trade for Darren Collison and pick up Okafor's big contract and try to give them our pick and turkoglu. Okafor can protect the paint while Bargnani does his funny looking drive from the three point line.

    You make quite the illogical, bigoted infused argument my friend... I'm by no stretch of the imagination a Colangelo fan, but I don't feel that "overpaying useless white guys" would be the proper argument for his lack of success.

    There's no way to say who'll be "most improved" when you haven't seen them play in proper NBA games after a training camp and offseason. I mean, c'mon... it's all just guesswork.

    I could easily say that Reggie Evans is definitely in the running for most improved, and who could say I'm wrong? LOL. There's no way for his game to go but up after last year.

    This thread is pointless. Wait until AT LEAST a few weeks into the season before you start handing out awards.

    Scott.

    Pops will get most improved, Look what happened to Delfino's game this season after spending a year playing in Moscow and drinking vodka.

    I think DeRozan is too raw to have a breakout season next season. I'm hoping he'll be ready by his third year.

    Next season, I'm expecting DeRozan's defense to improve from poor to slightly above average. And his rebounding from very good to excellent. That improvement will allow him to stay on the court for longer and make him a 30 minute a night player. Offensively, his lack of a handle, passing skills and suspect shot-creation will still be an issue. A 12ppg scorer.

    By his third year, I'm hoping to see his defense rise to a very good level + offensively, for his jump shot to become a real threat and a decent shot-creator but his handle/passing will still be weak. Hopefully a 16-18ppg threat with very good defense + excellent rebounding.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Of course, if the team is thrust into a major rebuilding mode ... DeRozan may get a larger offensive role than he's ready for and put up 15/16ppg.
