    Sooo He's not Vince on Toronto or T-Mac on Houston

    He's Kevin Martin on Sacramento.

    - Great :
    Kevin Martin has always been a very capable shooter. So not even that.

    I'd maybe put Demar up there with maybe a Corey Magette, for now. I think Demar has much more of an up-side, but I think their games are very similar.
    Corey has spent his entire career at the free-throw line and has made some solid coin doing it; and scored more then a few points too. He was a solid defender, and ran the wing on breaks to perfection. Now obviously I would like for Demars team to be more successful then Corey's were back in the day, but I'm pretty sure Magette was an All-Star and did it without shooting many 3's at all.

    I think his current career path has him on course for a more defensive Corey Magette. That's excellent if he can play within the confines of the team concept... Something Maggette never could do.
    whoa... sorry Apollo, didn't even read that. hahaha

    I think people, myself included, were getting impatient as there was no real sign of growth or improvement. Luckily for Raptors fans he is finally shown progression. He is still raw but at least for the time being hopefully people will get off his back. He needs a jump shot.

    As long as the Raptors are going with DD and Bargnani in the starting line up they need a SF who can hit the 3, play D, and rebound above average for his position - that sounds like a role Jeff Green would excel at (and people I know he plays PF for OKC but he is a natural SF). Unfortunately the chances of getting Jeff Green are somewhere between slim and none.
    You certainly are a thinker my friend. I've long hoped that OKC would get stupid and realize they can't afford him and ship him out for a package. Not sure which thread I mentioned Jeff Green in, but I'm pretty sure my words were 'Any means necessary. He would complete us in so many ways.' And just as you've stated, he really could fill in alot of missing pieces.

    Look at older posts in the trade forum. I've been begging for Jeff Green for a long time.

    While watching the Lakers game tonight, I was thinking... Oh ya.. Shannon Brown used to be a SHITE 3pt shooter, and then pretty much only this year did he suddenly turn into a very reliable one ... It is possible to add dimensions to one's game after all; with a lot of hard work of course, which I, and many seem, to think Demar is not one to shy away from.

    Look at the last 5 game. Expand to 82. Draw your conclusion.

    Bargs
    Demar


    My own is that we need a defensive SF (like Ariza) and a good C that take board and protect the paint and then we will have a Playoff season for sure.

    What do you think?

    i think that's exactly what we ALL want on the team. Unfortunately, defensive SFs and good natural Cs are an endangered species these days.

    Ariza would fit perfectly in this team. We are a fast paced team. Plus he won't have the huge responsibility he had when he was in Houston. He will be a third option on the Raptors, and probably will only shoot as much as he did with the Lakers, which is where he was most efficient. And that way he can even rely more on his defense.
