Fear not Matt for the Raptors have a new foreign rookie big man on the way who currently has unrealistic rookie year expectations on his shoulders. Q4 should allow Home Hardware rebound and finish the year strong.
Where's the biggest demar troll ever? pizzaman
But again, last year, his numbers increased every month, and became more and more consistent as the season went on. I will always have faith in Demar, because I believe he can be a VERY good player in the future.
DeMar was very raw coming outta USC. The way he has improved his great and at this rate he could be on his way to a couple of all star games. As he gets more time with dwane casey over the summer and gets time to work on his weaknesses i'm sure he'll come out next season lookin like andrea this year.
Ed Davis hasn't had a real NBA Traning camp yet, Demar Derozan didn't get the right time and advice on helping out his individual game, and practice time has hurt the two because if they are making mistakes, there are no real times to clean up and perfect. Look at the homestand! Ed Davis AND Demar Derozan have picked it up! They've had time and practice to spend and now they are playing hard individually and making difference in the games!
Raptor Fans, be patient!
Ya'll always bitch. He's athletic, but not an all-around player like Dwayne Wade. He's no Dwayne Wade.
He's a raw athletic talent. High potential. He added a very dangerous jump-shot & a couple of mid-range post moves (Kobe like moves) and is averaging near 16 points, near 4 rebounds, and 2 assists.
Summary: He has athleticism, a mid-range jump-shot, and mid-post moves. What else? Nothing, and he's doing better than most expected on draft night, everyone thought he was JUST a dunker. He has a high ceiling, but maybe we are asking TOO much. But his defense is no excuse, his athleticism should push that. He has been regressing from last season's performances, but he has a tendency to start slow, and finish strong i.e USC Tournament, last season. Let him grow, be patient. Ya'll are acting as if you want another VC/T-Mac/Stoudemire situation. Sure, let's go off another good potential talent and attain shitty bums.
DeMar's no superstar but as he adds weight and experience he'll be very good wing player
Well hopefully he can continue this momentum into February and ride it through to the end of the season.
I guess it's probably fair to look at it like Demar is a young player who went 5+ months without any real coaching during the past off-season. Not to mention played a ton of streetball. I just hope that he spends the next off-season working on his dribbling and defence. Being athletic doesn't mean much when you can't break down your man off the dribble.
I just want him to continue to be aggressive, that right now is all I ask, because dribbling or not, big ass body or not, he can get to the rim.
