    wow - great read and great for nba.com for finally paying attention to a raptor! demar is going to be a superstar in this league in a few years, and hopefully he'll still be in a raptor uniform when he does. the terms "class act" come to mind when i read this article and the fact that he's still only a child in his early 20s makes it all the better; so much upside

    ladies and gentlemen, i present to you, the future of toronto raptors basketball.......DEMAR DEROZAN!
    Your ex came by; you can call me Jonas Valanciunas, cause I'm the king of rebounds!

    Nice! It's funny how a lot of "fans" never even gave this guy a chance to be successful when we drafted him. People doubted his abilities and if he would ever become an all star. The truth is i believed in him before this team even drafted him. Being a fan of NCAA hoops. I watched a few of his games at USC. All i could think was that he would be a excellent fit for our team.

    Good read. I think people around here are sometimes too hard one him and lose sight of the fact that he's so young.

    exactly, people seem to be very critical of him even though the kids younger then me and finally getting to play in the spotlight for the first time. last year i cant even remember a play being run for the kid and even though he started every game, he was basically just out there floating around as a last option which doesnt necesarily help in his development or understanding of execution.
    now this year hes finally getting his chance and doing quite well in my opinion even though he might be a little streaky, i dont hear nybody giving players like thabeet or harden praise even though they were selected way ahead of him.

    Vince Carter played three years at UNC before entering the NBA. in his rookie season he averaged 18pts.

    Demar is still a year behind Carter in development, and is averaging 15.5 pts per game which is almost double his rookie season!

    The only high school players that dominated from the get go was Lebron and amare, but thats because they're not human!

    McGrady, Kobe took a couple years before bloom. Derozan will be next! Wooooooh!

    And the Raps/DD get free mentoring from Kobe. How good can that be...to scrimmage in the off season and get advice on the game/nba from the man?

    Pretty good unless he's starting to think he wants to be a Laker.

    Default DeMar @ The 2011 Dunk Comp.: DeMar Vents Frustrations (See post #114)

    Yessirrr!! Darryl Dr. "Dunkenstein" Dawkins is here to start the juices flowing for DeMar. He's here to work on ideas and such. The man is cool and funny. Great personality and it's gonna be CRAZY to see one of the legends of highlight reels return to the game, in this way. Maybe he'll bring the inner beast out in DeMar. Check out his interview video, this morning:

    I don't think DeRozan is comfortable doing this dunk:

    Dawkins suggested DeRozan might have the "little guy" advantage this dunk competition because everybody else is at or close to 7 foot. LOL

    See this is what I was talking about in an earlier thread. Those are competition dunks. Being a good game dunker won't win you a dunk comp. This is why I feel Blake Griffin is overrated and this is why I feel the competition is wide open for a guy like DeRozan who is bringing in experience and creativity to help him come up with his dunks.

    I have a feeling we're going to see some pretty ridiculous, gimmicky dunks this year. And alot of 'playing to the croud'.
    It might be really good, or a horribly bad Circus.
