Sorry to be the bearer of bad (or good) news but he was a healthy scratch.
Pretty good for the league's 17th best shooting guard.
Congrats again Demar! Maybe with this selection you'll finally get the respect you deserve from all basketball fans. Raptors fans are extremely proud of you and your efforts to represent us and your country!
Waiters is on the select team also.
Those types of lists actually hurt the credibility of the advanced metrics movement rather than help it. I wonder if they actually believe some of the stuff that their formula cranks out?
How about we let Waiters and Oladipo prove something first before we start just ranking them above Demar. I don't like calling people haters because I believe that term is used to loosely but with a situation like this I really believe it's hard not to call some of you haters. Even Dan H and mcHAPPY who give Demar constructive criticism and constantly point out his flaws don't agree.
Demar has to prove that he can play well in more than one season but somehow Waiters and Oladipo don't? Like where is the logic in that?
Using last years stats alone, he's top 5 PERIOD. We all know that if he played on an American team, he'd receive much more respect. The good thing is that the decision makers at USA basketball recognize how good he really is. The coaches around the league know how good he is. Honestly, a fair amount of our fans are starting to realize it too. Some appear too stubborn to move from their positions last year (iBlastoff) some have actually come around (McHappy).
The Brick Brothers are back together!
