Good job, Underscore. I enjoyed it.

if only demars jumper can rub off on sonny then we will have a real deal 2 guard depth
Which player has the most upside? Who do you feel will turn out to be the better pro?
That is a tough question. DeMar has really shown great strides this year and he has always been known as 'raw' and a 'project'. However, I'm going with Ed. The reason why is he was projected to be a top five pick after his FR and 5-8 after SO years. His drop was nothing more than luck for us Raptors fans.
Soloman Alabi! Bammmmmm!
I think Demar will for two reasons:
1. It's more of a guard oriented league these days
2. Ed's injury history implies he will likely have a shorter prime than Derozen.
"Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival."
They're so different.
Who was better Shaq or Kobe?
Whats better an Apple or an Orange?
You can't really say without a shadow of a doubt because they are totally different monsters.
In my opinion they both exhibit 'Sky is the limit' type of talent.
Demar's Ceiling : Non jumpshooting VC or slightly less skilled kobe
Ed's Ceiling : Better Defensive Bosh, Maybe Webber Lite
VC > Bosh , Kobe > Webber
Therefore by potential Demar > Davis
What if... Blazers had drafted both Drexler, Jordan?

Michael Jordan was the #3 pick in the 1984 draft, after Portland selected Sam Bowie second.
ed davis if he develops his jump shot he will be very dangerous
Ed Davis's game is nothing like Bosh. His ceiling is as an all-star Emeka Okafor.
Derozan's potential is unlimited. Last year, he had no jump shot and inconsistent free throw. This year he has both, look for him to keep on improving his rebounding and 3-point shooting. His ceiling is unlimited.

if youre talking that has more potential to be a superstar? then i gotta say demar but i think both will be either reach or be close to superstars when they reach their prime they are both improving at what theyre already good at and adding new fachets to theyr're game
i say demar. BTW Who wants Derozan to do a 360 dunk during a fastbreak? that would be fckin epic! and im not trying to make him sound like VC, im just saying how awesome it would be to see that again. I wonder if he could pull off a 720?
Seeing how much progress he has made in just a year, i would have to go with demar!
Blake vs. Gallinari?
Demar Vs. Jefferson, miles and favors?
Demar wins. Sorry if i went a little off topic.

A good big man is more valuable than a good guard.
In addition I see a leader's look in Ed's eyes and demeanor...not so in DD at this time. Next season will be a better time to ask the same question.
Big Ed he could be a monster down there he has shown flashes on BOTH ends which any raptors fan out there can appriciate. Especially because we had Bosh for so many years and he just couldnt bring it consistanly on D, I would actually be really happy if ED could avg 14 10 and play some mean fucking D.
You can't compare the two. Their games are different and they give to a team in a different way. I think most people will agree that both will become very productive players in the league as long as they keep working. They need to work out with Karl Malone
