    ESPN listing Demar as one of the top over achievers on the year:

    DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors
    WARP: 1.49 over projection
    Long despised by analytics, DeRozan's game has become more efficient thanks to improved shot selection and playmaking. More of his shot attempts have come from behind the arc, and while DeRozan's stroke is still inconsistent, he is shooting the 3 at a career-high rate (33 percent). His assist rate is also a career best, and two of his three highest assist totals for the season have come since the Raptors traded Rudy Gay to the Kings. DeRozan is not a star, but he has become a truly productive player.
    No question DeRozan has improved this season from the eye test.

    Stats aren't really backing it up though outside the increased 3pt percentage and attempts.

    Of concern of late is the last 8 games he is 7/31 for 22% and 2/17 for 12% in last 5 games.

    DeRozans only 'problem' now is consistency.

    Depends on what you need and who you have

    Go to fantasy forums and ask same question.

    DeRozan's 3P% has been dropping like a rock.

    On Nov. 26 against Brooklyn he went 4/6 and was shooting 40% on threes up to that point.

    Since that game he's gone 7/35. That's 20%. His overall 3P% has dropped to 33% and he appears well on his way to regressing to the neighbourhood of his 26% career average.

    I still like him - but I like him a lot better shooting 35% from deep.

    Demar after the game: "I could play four more if we had to."

    Not really... they just said that if it came down to Afflalo and Demar that you have to pick Aaron because his numbers are better across the board.

    I balled with them not too long ago. They're actually pretty good. The big burly guy with the beard is actually decent.

    That's the point. People keep saying to sell high on a player that hasn't peaked yet, and is on a favourable contract.

    It's like selling your house in a suburb where schools, businesses and roads are being built over the next 4 years, when you're only 1 year into the mortgage. That's not selling high.

    Demar plays for a better team, so you never know Mamba. You never know. Stay Golden.
    They're just stupid poopy pants anyway.

    Why would you be mad about that? I really like DeRozan as well, but Afflalo has been better this year. He scores about the same, but more efficiently, and has better rebounding and assist numbers like the Starters said (at least he did pre-Gay, DeRozan's post-Gay passing/rebounding stats are better). There isn't really any case for DeRozan over him.

    I think both of them could get in though. If I'm picking the East All-Stars atm, for me it's like this (starters are already set):

    STARTERS:
    G: Kyrie
    G: Wade
    F: George
    F: Melo
    F: LeBron

    BENCH:
    G: Wall
    G: Afflalo
    F: Horford
    F: Hibbert
    F: Drummond

    RESERVES:
    G: DeRozan
    G: Stephenson

    The West will spank the hell out of that team though, unless Vogel actually tries to go super-defensive and change things up a bit. He could suffocate the West defensively with a lineup of Wall/Wade/George/LBJ/Hibbert

    After DeMars been through, after everything.. just take a moment to let it sink in. he deserves to be in the all-star game like nothing else the way he just came in after rudy left like ' move aside its my team now and ima do what ever to win' he runs this team, we rest on his shoulders, DeMar caries the team day in and day out. That fact that he doesn't get much recognition around the league gets me mad.

    its pretty sad
