Demar came into the league as one of the most composed and poised, this is just a bad habit, hopefully not any more.
I disagree, I think this is totally warranted and I think you need to watch real stars play on occasion: they bitch and whine COnSTANTLY. DD gets hit anytime he goes into the paint, and while that's not unusual in and of itself, it's the utter muggings he gets without a call that bug me. He's getting to the line a lot lately but there are trips where, if he was on a better team (or simply a better player) he'd be getting flagrants called in his favour.
Last night he was extra venemous and he deserved to be: almost no one who drives that much gets 6 BAs vs 4 fta in 38 minutes (only 1 3pta). It was much worse early on This year when it felt like the raps were averaging 4 fouls to every one the opponent commited but these new refs are making a lot of garbage "rep" calls it seems
Look at Kevin Durant. He is a true superstar like Lebron, or Kobe. He is doesn't whine and bitch. And are you expecting that NOBODY whines and bitches? Plus I watch enough real stars play thank you.
Lebron and Kobe have earned that whistle, Demar hasn't. Period.
Demar, please shut up and play. You want calls? Get stronger.
Yay! The American press noticed us!
Welcome to the NBA where the players who least need the calls, always get the calls.
Gotta remind the referees that we want to win too lol. As long as Demar gets back on defense, and doesnt get called for technical fouls its all good. He has been getting a lot of calls over the last few games, maybe this is working for him.
I play harder and try to come back and get fouled, or shut someone down defensively. These are things that the best NBA players do. Sure, they bitch and whine like princesses, but that doesn't affect their game.
I was watching an old raptors game and realized how shit derozans handles are compared to wince farter
But seriously how hard is it to learn how to do a crossover?

well he does have this behind the back dribble thats coming along. But more than anything he should work on a crossover and a stepback
