i like that trade, actually. would do it in a heartbeat.
I don't agree with that at all. I'm not hoping he becomes O.J. Mayo. If the Raptors want Mayo why not wait for the summer and sign him?
Another thing for you to consider is that Mayo has been in the league going on four seasons and he hasn't improved. I'm not against him coming here but I'm against trading DeRozan for him. We're too quick to toss guys under the bus around here.
Hasn't improved, or hasn't been given the opportunity to improve? Let's face it, with Gay, Z-Bo, and Gasol, there isn't much ball to go around in Memphis.
In Toronto, he'd instantly become the #2 scoring option. The numbers Mayo put up in his first 2 seasons tells me this kid's got game, just waiting for another opportunity to shine.

He can't even beat out Tony Allen for starter minutes.
Demar and even Bargnani will both fade when the going gets tough and you're going to have to replace their spine to change that. I say trade both~
Also, Demar is a shooting guard who can't shoot.
DeMar should sit down and watch hours and hours of Rip Hamilton game tape. He is a more athletic Rip in my opinion.
DeRozan is never going to be a young Vince Carter-type player, so he should stop modelling his game after it.
As for not seeing the tenacity required, after watching Bargnani box out this year and play team defense:
Anything is possible indeed.
Blows my mind how we put so much faith in a SG that can't shoot... or dribble.
And since you're talking about loyalty... how many players do you think would take a pay cut to play in toronto if their demand is much higher elsewhere? Bargs? Wasn't he the one that said he'd rather like to play somewhere warm?
