Granted he has not played a game on that contract yet but I think Raps really lucked out.

Moving either DD or Gay for a shooting wing with less salary should be your petulant posts.
Man, I love the games within games.
This guy's videos should always be posted automatically to each players thread.
You come at the King, you best not miss.
The video said "upload from Hasan Alanam" but I thought it said Hassan Adams for a second...bad flashbacks at the Hassassin's time with the Raptors.
DeRozan's post game came to the fore a year ago, partially the product of time spent with Hall of Famer Gary Payton. An L.A. native, it's no secret that DeRozan emulates his idol Kobe Bryant, but he's also studied guys like Andre Miller in the post. Now he couldn't be more sure of himself in those situations.
"I know if I can get a player in the air that I can get a foul or get a layup," DeRozan said.http://www.sbnation.com/nba/2013/10/...preseason-2013Casey credits DeRozan's maturity and his approach, saying that he treats every possession like it's the last two minutes of the fourth quarter. The coach has seen his shooting guard grow up since taking over the team two years ago. DeRozan's heading into his fifth season and, even if he's still learning himself, he's setting an example for others with his work ethic.
"That's why it's so hard when people talk about, ĎThis guy's going to come in and take over the league,'" Casey said. "No, it doesn't happen overnight. It's a four-year process, a five-year process when you get a guy out of college. It's very rare a guy comes in and dominates and knows what it takes to dominate because he doesn't have life experiences to go through it. And that's where DeMar is and it's good to see."
"I definitely feel more comfortable than ever," DeRozan said.
Yeah yeah, it's preseason.. but he's still garnering attention with his strong play.

That's a very important point, and I'm glad it was communicated to DeRozan (and hopefully the whole team). Possessions in the 1st 5 minutes of the game aren't any less important than possessions in the last 5 mins.he treats every possession like it's the last two minutes of the fourth quarter

If he cleans that up, it will make a big difference for the team and I think it would vastly improve his productivity even if he didn't have the massive 30-pt games.
From what i've seen, what makes him so different this year than years past is he's making everything looks so effortlessly. He's very efficient scoring the ball. Decision making is superb. He knows what to do whenever he gets the ball. Like i said, he just looks like a different player this year its crazy.

Great watch DeMar nice seeing him in the relaxed setting with his little girl and fiancee. its beautiful.
This bodes well: I don't know where I saw it, but in reference to the defensive focus this year, DeMar is quoted as not only paying the usual lip service to defense, but saying that coach Casey is making it FUN to focus on defense. Man, if Casey has managed to get the whole team thinking like that, this could be a fun season.
I know we've talked about how confident DD looks on the court this year, but even in his interviews he seems a lot more confident. He's not answering every question with "It's definitely big." Dude's got some serious swagger now and its nice to see.
