    Default Demar loves Houston.

    Second half of the season.

    First game back. @ Houston against the Rockets.

    Demar Derozan is picking it up. Remember last year? 37 points, the game that fueled him the rest of the season.

    Maybe this is a game where he just does it again. Thoughts?

    Yeah I would dream of him to do that too! :P

    I want Bargs back, but maybe it's best to have him 100% rather than play less, because of the state of our season. We aren't making the playoffs.

    I wish he loved Allan Houston enough to model his game after him. huh, huh. Did you see that guy shooting last night? We need a SHOOTING guard. Kidding aside, I think DeMar has been awesome in the last 10 or more games and I hope he continues to play to his strengths. I predict 26 pts, 3 rebounds, 3 assists.

    I hope we wait on Bargnani, make sure he is 100% and then ease him in to putting in big minutes. Maybe play 10min. the first game, then 15 and so on. Keep in mind we are trying to get a franchise player in the draft this year.

    Yeah Agree with all your points and predictions except....

    I don't know about drafting a franchise player, drafting a high potential talent that will contribute right away, maybe. But, I don't know, franchise players to me for T.O seem very overrated nowadays, I think we want to follow the steps of Indiana, or Philly, Denver. With very good balanced teams with a shoulder to lean on. Maybe that shoulder is Bargnani, Demar, Valanciunas, the upcoming draft pick, whatever it is, we aren't getting a franchise player. (Oh how I would loved to be proved wrong)

    I'm a realist. But good points otherwise.

    You are right it's not guaranteed that we will get a franchise player. It is a possibility though. With proper scouting we should get a player that can be a starter and contribute at a high level.

    I don't know where we will be drafting this year. Our record should improve with Bargnani back in the line up and DeMar getting in the grove again. But, I can also see the Hornets improving with Gordon returning, New Jersey with Lopez back. We could still land in the top 4.

    He should model his game after Clyde Drexler
