    Default Demar Derozan's Progress measured in Mental Miles.

    Great article by CBSSports.com on Demar Derozan up right now.

    Its a long one, so I won't even bother posting parts of the article, as I recommend reading the whole thing.
    But leave it to an American Outlet to do a better Spotlight on our own player. Ugh.

    Demar Derozan's Progress measured in Mental Miles.

    A couple Bullet-points they list at the bottom caught my eye though:
    Quote CBSSports.com wrote:
    DeRozan's fiancee is also a baller, and DeRozan says she's always trying to topple him in shooting contests. As to whether she has ever beaten him one-on-one? "Never. I'd never let that happen." I'm sure she'll love to read that. Every married guy reading this just shook his head.
    On what he wishes NBA players realized more about Toronto, which constantly struggles with attracting free agents: "Great city. It's better than a lot of cities that you can think of. It's really diverse. The culture's great. The fan base is great."
    I didn't know he was engaged?! Or even that he had a girlfriend? Crazy .. but then again .. why should I know this?

    He is engaged? Wow, talk about being on the DL! Unlike Fields who basically feeds the relationship to the media!

    More accolades.

    Love how he stuffed the stat sheet last night. Last year if he wasn't scoring, he wasn't contributing (weird, who does that sound like?).

    Great game today by Derozan. His offensive game is really developing well.

    An interesting stat about Demar I saw today, he leads the league in shots blocked (39). Not exactly a good thing, but at least he is being aggressive. The list includes guys like Greg Monroe, Carmelo Anthony, and Tim Duncan; so it's not necessarily a knock per say.

    It's at the bottom of this link

    Do blocked shot attempts also consist of when he is obviously fouled and they don't call it?

    I would doubt it. To be honest, I've never seen the stat before, anywhere, ever. I don't know if that is a stat they got from the NBA, hoopsdata or some other source, so there is certainly some ambiguity to it.

    My guess is absolutely those are included as blocks. Unfortunately.
    I'm not usually one for conspiracies, but the Refs have been especially, and consistently, brutal this season when it comes to Demar. And what I LOVE, is that he's complaining to the refs less than ever. Play the game, young buck.

    Ya Demar has really matured, its just too bad he doesnt go to the line as much as all star James Harden I guess thats his next path in growth. Harden's fta is ridiculous hes avg 12 trips refs give this guy the whistle.

    Nice find Puffer!

    Quote CBSSports wrote:
    He caught a pass on the right wing, drove to the baseline against Chandler Parsons (one of the better perimeter defensive players at small forward), turned the corner on Parsons and then hit the Rockets with a reverse dunk. This was an incredibly difficult play, and he made it look like a layup.
    Slowly but surely, Demar is getting there boys.

    He is. He has really been a pleasant surprise. His development this year really is the exception to the 'rule'. If he can tighten up his defense..... well, that is just to exciting of a thought at work.

    I, for one, have pretty much been proven wrong about DeRozan so far. Didn't except him to play like someone who actually plays like someone you pay more than 6/7 million, but he does. At this point I'm not hoping, but expecting him and Lowry to improve their defense. Off-topic, but I think it's actually very benificial for Lowry to be watching these last two games from the bench and seeing what can be done with teamwork on offense and teamdefense.

    I still remain skeptical. DeMar was bad the past few years. He has improved, but improving something bad just makes it mediocre. He gets a lot of minutes, and is still a volume shooter, with a poor TS%, and isn't very clutch (and that just considers his offense). And unlike bigs you pretty much know what you are going to get with a wing after their 2nd or 3rd year.

    My leash only extends as far as 3 seasons though.. I guess I'm being a bit harsh since he has shown improvements (which doesn't always happen).. but I'll remain skeptical until at least next season as that is when I expect his biggest leap.
