    Default Demar Jordan (The Progression of Demar)

    Derozan's Game in his second year is a clear indication on what guys game he's modeling after.

    Michael Jordan 35 pts - 22 yrs old

    I really like what this young man has turned into. So now that we have a bonifed player, what do you say 1 maybe 2 more seasons before he wants the hell out of Toronto? why does this always have to happen it upsets me so much.

    Well hopefully the league fixes the problem through the new CBA. I think everyone is aware of it. I think the impact this new trend has had on cities like Cleveland is to the magnitude that something needs to be done and will be done. I've heard the rumors about the "franchise tag" being brought in. Also a hard cap would go a long way. Even in the current setting, the setup is such that DeMar is better off playing his first two contracts in Toronto. He won't be gone in anytime soon.

    What upsets me is the fatalist attitude of some fans who think that any good American player is simply going to want to leave Toronto. Bosh and Vince both left for reasons that had nothing to do with the city and everything to do with the direction and performance of the team. Stoudemire left because of his allegiance to Isiah, who had been forced out, and McGrady left because he wanted out of the shadow of Vince.

    While I like Derozan, there's a huge difference between his 30 point game against the John Wall Wizards, and Jordan's 35 pt game against Dr. J and Barkely (I'm also assuming Moses Malone might've still been here on this team).

    But yeah, I like his progression too.
