Guy has not been talked about much since being drafted 8th, and Colangelo took tons of flack for drafting him, but he is really starting to play well and helped the Raps get there 5th win in a row tonight. Known for his shooting but as you can see here also a great dunker.

He should start over Derozan, he can do everything better and can actually shoot the Ball.

The cameraman and producer for FSN are idiots, why did they switch to the crappiest angle for such a sick dunk?

i mean those are two solid dunks but they dont validate his play this year. hes not really playing all that well...

averaging 6 and 2, less than 30% from 3....

Wow I don't watch to many rookies but this kid looks legit. Anyone know if he's a good shooter or defender?

well until recently he hasnt played much, but the last handful of games hes started to crank it up, hes a rookie so he will be up and down. He has a nice stroke I just dont think he was able to get into rhythm in 3-4 minuter spurts playing behind Demar,

He barely played any mins at the start of the season, he is just recently getting more consistent minutes, also I think he's still adjusting to NBA range (like all rookies)

He's solid defensively too.

Good shooter and decent defender. Shot has been streaky but he was know as a shooter in college, hes starting to put it all together though. Very quick jumper, gets off the ground and to the rim crazy fast

He was drafted as a shooter, he's just finally finding his stroke.

and yes, he's good defensively, really quick feet.

I really liked him coming out of college i think he will be special. Just not sure what the Raps are going to do with him and Derozon.

Most Rap fans think moving Derozan to the 3 is what will happen.

DeRozan is getting more and more expendable as we speak. He and Calderon could make a good trade package for a better small forward.

This is my biggest pet peeve about watching basketball on TV. I hate it when they switch to the baseline cam on a breakaway :mad:

I was really surprised when Derozan got his deal after they had just drafted Ross. I think taking him 8th was a worthwhile gamble though especially with having Valanciunas (and thus a limited need for Drummond).

It's the same face most players make after they've made a nice dunk. It's the "smells like someone just farted" face.

he could be the next kobe if he developed a better handle to break his man down. has the shooting ability, athleticism and defence.
