    I think he had a decent game. Yes he really needs to improve his D. There are going to be guys that are going to light him up, he's guarding a difficult position. Henderson has been playing well as of late.

    As for the rebounds... I think you guys are just looking for things to bitch about.

    The Bobcats we doubling DeMar in the fourth, as soon as he had the ball in his hands there would be two guys waiting for him. He passed it off in those situations, he didn't force his game. Some one else could have stepped up.

    I guess DeMar is the new Bargnani.

    Correct.

    But he really shouldn't be going 30+ minutes without a rebound... No one should.

    I agree, but if it was a nightly occurrence then there is a problem. For a SG to have none in one game is not problem.

    I'm basically saying the offensive game that he did have last season, is starting to return. I'm just glad he hasn't totally regressed as player, which was a major worry among fans earlier this season.

    He wasn't a defensive, rebounding machine to begin with. Should he get better in those areas? Yes. Give him a full offseason with Casey watching over him and I bet he will be better.

    No doubt he's having a tough time adjusting to Casey's defensive focus. I don't think anyone should give up on him. He's probably never going to be an MVP, but I see him as an important part of a well-rounded team. Almost the way Shawn Marion was a valuable part of the Suns a few years back.

    Maybe I'm being over-critical wishing DeMar would play defense and be able to score when it matters. Maybe I'm too tough on him you guys.

    Ya, people said that about Bargnani too. He'll come around.

    Default Call me crazy but ...

    I see more potential in James Johnsons game then DeRozan.

    I do as well, but I just think Demar is more of a scorer than JJ, cause he's a two-way player. So, two different playing styles, two different positions in the NBA. The way they play suits the position they play, but i don't know about what everyone else thinks.

    Default Why no faith?

    Why has there been so much negativity and disbelief in Demar Derozan's future/potential? He's been playing well recently, and is most definitely our best player without Bargnani. He's only 22.

    Calderon is our best player without Bargnani, but people don't view him as our guy moving forward so I see why you overlooked him.

    I believe this has been, and continues to be, discussed in the "Everything DeRozan" thread.

    Well this is a rebuilding season, and most definitely Calderon is not in our long term focus.

    Calderon scores cause defenders sag off of him because of him being a great passer and looking to pass first then shoot. Look what happened to Jose when Pringles put Iman Shumpert on him. DeRozan goes through that tight defense every night and he dropped 29 on san antonio. He has loads of potential and he's only going to get better

    Totally agree, it's just his mentality of "I need to be aggressive every game, possession, etc."

    It's funny when ppl have nothing say when DeMar has a good game. Once again his 22 and in his 3rd year. In a wierd lockout year. Let's stop with the trade talk and drafting a replacement.

    Demar played a tremendous game, he was hot, attacked the defense, and read it well. He looked like one of the smartest players out there, AND he filled up the stat sheet! Loved his defense as well tonight.

    Everyone can reply something negative. Point is, this is not close to his full potential, and he proved what he can do for us.

    Default In case you missed it, DeMar has a solid February

    36.1 6.5-14.3 .459 0.5-1.4 .333 4.9-6.2 .794 3.1 2.3 0.3 0.8 3.5 2.6 18.5

    11 games played
    36.1 minutes per game

    18.5 points
    .459 FG (6.5/14.3)
    .333 3pt (0.5/1.4)
    .794 FT (4.9/6.2)

    3.1 rebs
    2.3 ast
    0.3 blk
    0.8 stl
    2.6 turnovers


    Not too bad considering the start to the year.

    A little higher on the shooting percentage, cut down on the turnovers, and improve defensively and I would be content.
