    ... The guy let his emotions get to him and posted a silly two worder on Twitter, which he removed a couple hours later. Probably once he calmed down. This is a non-issue. He's a good guy and I don't imagine this will happen again. If that's the biggest issue in the Raptors' locker room then welcome to Mr.Roger's neighborhood or the pro ball equivalent at least.

    I don't know what his future holds but looking at Colangelo's past history with draft picks, the majority get a whole lot of time before he pulls the plug... If he pulls the plug. I think the odds are far better that he's here next November to witness J.V. getting tossed under the bus after the first bad game he has.

    Assume that was the first time DD crossed anyone on the team incl the coaches. He is a good guy and I think its a forgotten thing already after the talk Casey had with him. His play the rest of the year will determine his stay as it should be.

    Don't know if you saw the pre-game, Dwane Casey said he would handle the frustration internally, but he also said he loved the spicyness in Demar to want to win and the want to play. Dwane Casey seems to be a coach that'll piss you off and get the best of you on both ends of the floor, and keep composure. He wasn't blamed for defense from what I heard, I heard he wasn't working hard enough offensively.

    Last time Colangelo did that was...
    2007-2008: Parker, Moon, Kapono, Graham, Garbajosa and Delfino.

    And before that?
    2006-2007: Parker, Graham, Garbajosa, Mo Pete, Fred Jones, Luke Jackson, P.J. Tucker

    Seems like it's happened 50% of the time over the past six seasons.

    Default DeMar's solid stretch

    DeMar's played some pretty good games to coincide with Toronto's 4-5 record over the last 9, his game against Tony Allen notwithstanding. I think if he continues this improvement, he's worthy of a spot as a second option, no?

    i'd say 2nd or 3rd option. If we draft a good player then he might end up being a 3rd option. He looks like he has all star potential though, if we pick an all star caliber wing we might have are own big three. Bargs, DeRozan and 2012 pick/Jonas

    DeRozan at best can be a solid 1st option, but no where near the 1st option likes of Joe Johnson, Kobe, and Dwayne Wade.

    DeMar DeRozan has too much difficulty creating his own shot to be considered a viable first option in my opinion.

    That's why I said at best, no where near in the likes of Johnson, Bryant, and Wade. He has a solid post-game, good pull up jumper, and works well within' the open floor. He's going to continue to improve, but if this is him now and ever, he would be a solid one. Not such an impact player like the three I had mentioned.

    Joe Johnson shouldn't even be mentioned with d wade and kobe. JJ isn't that good and IMO DeMar might end up being better later on in his career.

    Default Chisolm preaches patience

    For now, let's wait and see how DeRozan finishes off the season. Let's see how he blends with Andrea Bargnani back on the court. Let's see what kind of players the Raptors surround him with this summer. His comfort level on the court of late has been a world apart from where it was back in January and he and Casey look to have found a methodology to maximize DeRozan's effectiveness when he's playing. That's a major turnaround from earlier in the season. It's still impossible to gauge exactly what Toronto has in DeRozan but suffice it to say that whatever they do have looks a lot better today than it did only a few weeks ago.

    Was watching the Jonas Valanciunas Story, and Dwane Casey mentioned Demar, Andrea, and Jonas being the important guys when Jonas arrives.

    That is true, those 3 and our draft pick this year is our core we build around.

    Jose is not part of the future and its obvious. We need a PG that can penetrate and put pressure on the defense, jose is a great pg but he is not aggressive enough and he can't defend the better PG's in the league.

    I think he will stay for another year or two, but I don't see him down the road.
