    When Bargani has a bad stretch you seem to ignore his good games!
    You fail to mention his improvements
    yes yes you are a complete hypo
    *Sigh*
    All while shooting a decent percentage from the field and improving in all aspects of his game.
    Why do you even have to brings Bargs into this? He's not a better player this season when compared to last year. And he hasn't shot 25% over a ridiculous stretch, all the the while regressing defensively and on the boards.

    I bet a lot of people don't like Bayless, but I'm not going to get so butthurt about it.

    Why do you "speak" to me as if I'm somehow personally insulting you? I think you need to get a bit of a grip.

    As for Bargnani, I'm not sure why you're bringing him up in a thread that has nothing to do with him, but since you did...

    What improvements are you referring to? He has improved his offense, but that was never the problem with him. He hasn't improved his defense or rebounding one bit, and that was the main area he needed to work on.

    The thing is that you have to look at the big picture and not a stretch of games. Has Bargnani improved over last season? A bit offensively, but not in the areas that he needed the most improvement. Has he improved since the beginning of the season? No. In fact he's not posting up as much, taking more long twos and not getting to the line at as high a rate. And his rebounding and defense are still extremely poor.

    I'm not quite sure how I'm being a hypocrite because I don't ignore lack of improvement in necessary areas, while focusing on improvements in a single area that wasn't a problem in the first place.

    Oh, and when I look at the progress of a player, I don't look at individual games. Looking at individual games can be deceiving. I don't do it for Bargnani or DeRozan.

    And can we cease with the name-calling? It's a little juvenile.

    The way things are going I think Derozen is going to be a star on this team and he still has a long way to go in terms of development. I've never felt as optimistic about the Raps future as I do now. We have all of the flexibility in the world and with Demar, Ed, and Amir all fast developing into very good players, I think we're two seasons, a top 5 pick, and some luck away from having something special here. We just ave to clear some of the dead weight.

    This guy analyzes all players in the NBA; Raps fans are being biased if they are saying that Demar has jumped out as a better player then his sophmore peers. It easy as a Raps fan to notice the progress of Demar since last season, but for an NBA analyst, it's probably not eye popping.

    Who said he's jumped out as a better player than his sophomore peers? Where are you getting this from? The issue is whether he's shown a lot of progress, which he has, especially in the last couple of months.
