    Sports Illustrated thinks Gay can be an All-Star

    Rudy Gay, Raptors: Like [Josh] Smith, Gay benefits from an increased profile on his new squad. The Raptors haven’t made it to the postseason since 2008, and someone will get some love if they can hang in contention into January. Clearly the No. 1 guy in Toronto (at least until Jonas Valanciunas fully blooms), Gay is also in position to be one of the league’s top 10 scorers, and nine of the top 10 scorers last season earned All-Star nods (Curry was the only exception). Hopefully, the coaches will only reward Gay if his efficiency numbers take a big leap forward, but he’s lurking if Toronto starts well and someone like George unexpectedly falters.

    Rudy gay showing he can consistently shoot efficiently (and thus have an efficient offense):

    2007-2011

    FG% : 46%, 45%, 47%, 47%

    3PT% : 35%, 35%, 33%, 40%

    TS% : 55%, 53%, 54%, 55%

    Compare to SF average in those years and you will see that Rudy has had high usage in times of high efficiency.
    this Rudy hasn't existed since his shoulder injury.. great game last night as far as FG% goes but the shot selection was still terrible IMO aside from I think 2 baskets at the rim, with one being a fast break after a steal. If the shot selection stays the same all year I think his FG% will be just as bad as it was the past 2 years

    The thing is the shot that Rudy takes he practices them. If he stopped taking those shots he would lose confidence. Than taking away his clutch gene. Rudy believes his going to make every shot he takes. By making him second guess him self, take a way the most important part of his game.

    I agree with the fact that taking shots away from him and making him second guess is definitely a negative, but...

    He has the be smarter in general with the shots that he takes.
    I've noticed that he doesn't take many highly contested long-twos, or contested perimeter shots, but he stops the ball and team movement when it comes to him, and takes many shots outside of the offense. He needs to get closer to the basket (post-ups, drives, off p-&-r's), and he should think about doing something with the ball within a short period of time.

    No news to Raptors fans, Bill Simmons says the plan is to trade Rudy.

    There's no way Ujiri is planning on trading Gay FOR SURE. If he wanted Gay gone, he would have been traded by now. I think it's quite clear he wants to see how the group plays together before making a decision at the deadline

    Default Players who 'NEED' to breakout

    Of course Rudy would headline this topic.

    Rudy Gay, Toronto Raptors:* This is a big season for Gay. He has long been paid like a superstar and this season Toronto needs him to play like one. If last night is any indication, Gay is headed in the right direction as he kicked in 17 points on 7-for-11 shooting in 23 minutes. The Gay situation is tenuous for a couple of reasons: The Raptors need Gay to have an All-Star caliber year, and for Gays part he needs that too as he has the option to hit free agency in July. Unfortunately for Gay he has never really produced to the level of his hype and certainly not to the level of his paycheck. For the 2013-14 season, Gay is the 14th highest paid player in the NBA, yet logged a 15.66 PER which ranked him 125th in the NBA last season. For Gay to continue to command All-Star money, especially in his next deal, hes going to have to show All-Star ability this season. For a future in Toronto hell need to prove that he can be more than an 18 point per game scorer, he needs to lead them to the postseason. Achieving both could pay off for both the Raptors and Gay; failing to achieve could signal big change in Toronto and a much lower market value for Gay if he opts out of his contract.

    Ok. I don't have the powers to edit other people's posts, but I can edit the quote. I realize he's gone now and so, this is kind of insignificant. But, the man at least deserves to have his name spelled properly.

    Default Keep Rudy

    Despite the contract I want Rudy Gay on my team. The guy brings the sizzle that we haven't had since Vince. He has elevated DeRozan's game as well, big time. We have one of the best wing pairs in the league.

    Default DeMar isn't the only one sipping from the cup of efficiency this pre season....

    A lot has been made about DeRozan but I just noticed Rudy's stat line this preseason:

    14 points per game
    8 field goal attempts
    6.8 free throw attempts

    47.5% fg
    46.7% 3pt
    73.5% ft

    4.6 rebounds
    1.2 assists
    .6 blk
    .8 stl
    1.8 to


    IN 20 MINUTES PER GAME*

    Yes its just pre season but come on making shots is making shots, and Rudy, Fields, DeMar and Ross are picking better ones maybe not so much Ross but you get the idea. 3s or nothing outside 16 ft love it.

    Not to preach Bryan but his "Organic growth" statement is true... broken plays are solved with good team chemistry.

    Where did you find these stats? Or did you just calculate it yourself?
