    Default HPTH: DeMar a soon-to-be All-Star?

    DeMar DeRozan possesses the drive and determination that makes okay players good, and good players great. Similar to Williams, DeRozan's game was focused almost solely on his athleticism last season. He scored on cuts and fast breaks almost exclusively, and provided average defense at best. However, DeRozan worked his butt off the very second the 2010 season ended for the Raptors, polishing new moves, improving his handle and shooting ability, and watching tape. With Chris Bosh leaving for Miami, it's seemingly up to DeRozan and Andrea Bargnani to carry this team. The coaching staff in Toronto seems determined to teach him Kobe's pet moves and instincts, realizing that DeMar does have a shot at being a great scorer for the Raptors for years to come. He showed off his dramatically improved game at the Las Vegas Summer League, averaging 21-4.5-1.5 in 4 games.

    Definitely seems like a possibility if you ask me.

    He scored on cuts and fast breaks almost exclusively,
    This is only partially correct

    According to Synergy Sports here is the break of DeRozan's FGAs in 09-10

    Top Four Plays by Percent of FGA's

    Play--------Percent----PPP - FG%--Amir FG% - DeRozan Overall PPP 1.01
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Spot-Up------32-------.91---44.1---48.4
    Transition-----26------1.16---60.9---80.5
    Cut-----------12------1.41---69.8---68.4
    Dreaded ISO---8--------.61---30.2---27.3 on only 12 FGAs

    Surprisingly DeRozan attempted more Spot-Up shots than any other type of play. However his PPP on Spot-Ups was not very good. His PPP as well as his FG% on the dreaded ISO play were both horrible as were Amir's numbers on the dreaded ISO play.

    Buddah, it says DeRozan scored mostly on the fastbreak and with cuts. Check your ppp's. :P

    Appreciate the help though. I'm waiting on October 1st until I purchase MySynergy. Not worth 30 bucks for one week, haha.

    Making all-star would mean he's a top 4 guard in the East...

    Something terrible would have to happen to all but three of these players (who I'd say are all better than him right now):

    Rondo, Rose, Jennings, Wade, Nelson, Igoudala (sp?), Arenas, J Johnson... okay, I'm too tired to think of who else might be on this list. Hell, Devin Harris is still better than DeMar even with his terribad season last year.

    So no, I think it's pretty safe to say he's not going to be an All-Star this year. Sorry DeMar, still <3 you.

    If you wanna classify him as a forward, he'd have even less chance now that the East is rife with monster PFs, SFs and Lebron.

    Edit: Oops... "soon to be" is a bit of a vague statement... certainly not this year. slim chance for next. and after that, it's kinda pointless to be forecasting.

    He scored mostly on Post-Ups

    He had a higher PPP on the other two plays
