Just watched the Raptors beat a very hot (but tired) BKN Nets team.
The Raps are above .500 and look to be a legit playoff contender.
When the game was in question Derozan took over and scored 7 straight points. He looked like a superstar. Very similar to PG early last year. Demar was also commanding double teams and created easy 3P shots for Salmons and co.
Forget Lowry. Derozan is the real deal and should lead the Raps to the second round.
They are also getting calls that they would have never got last season. What he and Casey are doing is working. I think it's time to recognize our neighbors to the north as a solid contender, eh?

Derozan is one of my favourite active players (probably #1) but Lowry is more important to this team so far this season.

Masai Ujiri seems to be making a team that is similar to the Denver Nuggets team he made that had no true superstar, but great tepth and they play team basketball.

The difference: I think this Raptor team has the potential (too early to tell yet) to be even better. They are much more defence focused, right on down from their coach to their players.

Demar is playing great though, when he came into the league he had no jumper and now his jumper is deadly. Good defender, can score from anywhere, and he's got that fire that says, "I will will my team to victory."

Contender for the second round. Still can't see us beating Indy or Miami in a 7 game series.

Which is all fine and dandy in the PSD world, but they won't win without a superstar and Ujiri will be the man behind a good team but not a good enough team once again.

DeRozan has been playing lights out recently. If he can keep improving his game (specifically from the 3pt line) he he can be a very, very good player as he's always had the potential.

Demar derozan needs to finish with more emphatic dunks and display his athleticism, he also needs to bring up his 3pt shot along with his defense and passing. If he can do all tht, no reason why he cant be a 22/5/5 like brandon roy like numbers

I really feel like Derozan has improved every year. If his jump shot stays consistent he may be the poor Canadians Kobe we always thought he could be. Consider if he continues to improve and JV becomes a top five position player.

Raptors are playing good basketball. Demar is good. What I have always felt about him is that he isn't in USA so he gets over looked. But raps need another good player and this team can surprise a team in the playoffs and prob get even better in the coming years.

I've always had a soft spot for Toronto but lets be fair, are the Raptors going to be a playoff team this year? Yeah, they will. But in the weakest conference I've ever seen in my life time. They've gone 5-7 against teams in the west, 8-8 at home. With their current record they would be 10th in the west.

As for Derozan? I like him, he's still got some big holes in his game but who doesn't? Am I ready to call him a superstar in the same realm as KD, LBJ, CP3, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Derrick Rose etc? No. But he's definitely worthy of being an all star or whatever.

Also I have him in two of my five fantasy leagues, so best of luck to him! lol


Edit;

Side note, I would love to see him be more aggressive in driving the lane, he's a better athlete and finisher than his numbers would suggest, right now 85% of his shot selection is jump shots, his effective field goal is .411 on those shots and they're assisted on 56% of the time. Although he can hit those shots well I would like to see him get to the rim more often.

The East is brutal, absolutely, but we've still had a schedule just as hard as most Western Conference teams to date: http://espn.go.com/nba/hollinger/powerrankings/_/sort/sos

We are also seeing a tales of two different teams at the moment. Since the Gay trade, the team is 12-5, 5-2 at home, 3-2 vs the West (2 losses against SA, road wins against OKC, Dallas and LAL)

The argument against the current team we are seeing is small sample size IMO.

I actually thought Plumlee was very impressive last night. His size and athleticism gives him loads of defensive potential. Exciting young player.

Thanks for contrasting your fellow Knicks fan. I hope you guys keep turning it around this season along with Brooklyn. Mostly because it would be nice to compete for a division title of a real division. It is more exciting for everyone that way.

Demar is definitely an emerging star. The most impressive part regarding Demar is his work ethic. Each year he seems to add to his game. I am excited to watch the continued refinement of his game.

Exciting times in Raptorland we aren't terrible!

To the poster talking about Wiggins being a superstar. I am not sold at all on that potential. He doesn't seem to be worth destroying the culture that is emerging in Toronto at the chance of landing him. Culture is more important than any one player with few very rare exceptions. Toronto up to this point has never had a player that falls into that category.

I just think Masai gets an awful lot of praise for someone who hasn't achieved much, his trades look good on paper but they get him nowhere. I also don't understand how we are "screwed for years to come", everything is off the books in 2015, but lets try to keep this about the Raptors.

I am still yet to be convinced by anyone that Masai deserves the credit he receives.

And by no draft picks you mean a first owed in 2016 and thats it. Which for Toronto is going to be the less favourable pick of either Denver or NY, so you will probably get a mid to late first.

Then why are so many of his shots jumpers? Getting to the line doesn't negate the discrepancy between he and Bron when it comes to attacking the basket. Not that we should be comparing him to Bron but thats why he shouldn't have been mentioned in the first place.

In other words, flawed point. Doesn't change what the OP said.

Its easier said than done being the primary scorer on the team. Teams are now blitzing, trapping, and doubling him more, and to DeRozan's credit, he has adjusted, and is making the right passes, bringing up his assist numbers.

IDK how anyone can say he's not a star. He's a 2-way player. Dwayne Casey has him not only offensively smart now, but defensively as well. Like this streak, peeps just think Kyle Lowry turned on a switch and that's what made them go 11-5 or something. Nah it's not that. It's the fact now he's taking more shots w/ Ross and they are a dangerous combo. The backcourt can shut you down, the backcourt creates offense, DeRozan's wingspan and IQ is leading to challenged passing lanes and fastbreak easy baskets, they are also challenging your perimeter shots and responding at the line. Mostly DeMar.

DeMar is 21/4/5 and a steal per game in his last 10 gms. He's averaging 21/4/3/1 for the season. The leading scorer in the NBA is averaging 29 ppg. The rest, 26-24. DeMar is averaging 21 PPG w/ 1 SPG. That is star. He's also 24.

Exactly. And theres only 2 or 3 superstars in this league and none of them will be in TO any time soon so the Raps (and every other team that doesnt have a superstar) are SOL.

I will never have respect for the raptors.

For these reasons:

They always steal the kings best players (pattterson, salmons, vassquez deserve to be kings still) without them the raps wouldnt be playing so well.

2. I will always remmeber them for the scrub bench playing like garbage. half the raptors players nobody knows, to be a true superstar team your bench has to be well recongnized. The kings for example, everyone knows jimmer the 3point great, dwill the 2ndround pick with unlimited potential, quincy acy the energetic shotblocker, etc etc. Raptors?? not even a single scrub from their bench comes to my mind.
3. I think of tanking when I think of raptors.
4. Kings outplay them everytime, they're only playing good because the east is a complete and utter joke(just beat cavs by 44points, you serious brah?)


So the OP is trolling in my honest opinion, how could any team besides pacers or heat in the east be good? lol the raps play any lottery team from the west and will get blown out guarantee it, all raps have is potential..which doesn't mean crap in this day and age.

2. I will always remmeber them for the scrub bench playing like garbage. half the raptors players nobody knows, to be a true superstar team your bench has to be well recongnized. The kings for example, everyone knows jimmer the 3point great, dwill the 2ndround pick with unlimited potential, quincy acy the energetic shotblocker, etc etc. Raptors?? not even a single scrub from their bench comes to my mind.

LOLWAT?


3. I think of tanking when I think of raptors.
4. Kings outplay them everytime, they're only playing good because the east is a complete and utter joke(just beat cavs by 44points, you serious brah?)


So the OP is trolling in my honest opinion, how could any team besides pacers or heat in the east be good? lol the raps play any lottery team from the west and will get blown out guarantee it, all raps have is potential..which doesn't mean crap in this day and age.
REALLY? No other team comes to mind? What about that team in north cali that's been in the lottery like the past 7 years?

Hilarious post.

1. Toronto steals King's best players who happen to all be bench players for the raptors at the moment, yet you cannot name a "single scrub" from their bench.

2. Dwill is the 2nd round pick with unlimited potential. Then you go on to say potential doesn't mean crap in this day and age. And by the way, Quincy Acy the energetic shot blocker was a raptor and wasn't even part of Toronto's bench rotation.

3. Kings have been as horrible as the raptors for quite a while now, so I wouldn't make fun of them as a tanking team when you're a fan of the Kings.

You're just full of contradictions.

In addition to the wonderful points already made, I'll add a few more.

- D.Williams was 2nd overall, not a 2nd round pick.
- The Raptor's had the 5th hardest schedule in the league based on SOS, which is harder than 2/3's of the West's schedule so far
- The OP is a Detroit Pistons fan showing appreciation for another team and another player, how is he trolling?

There is so much wrong with it, I feel that it has to be... but is it?

Funny thing is that if the King's were to be placed in the East, they would be the 6th worst team in the conference. Probably won't even have a .500 record in the east well.

derozan just needs the 3PT shot, around 36% and he'd easily be a 25-5-5 player.

Definitely not trolling CousEvansDuo. Just recognizing a team that has impressed me this year. Aside from Lebronning and ShoelaceGate there is not much else going on in the league. I guess MJ wasn't a true superstar when he had Jon Corzine coming off the bench in the 80s? Or Lebron with Donyell Marshal and co. In the 00s? Also there is a huge gap between star and superstar. I just feel that Demar is a very legitimate SG in the league and that he is playing at a star level.

KD, CP3, Lebron, PG, Steph Curry these guys are Superstars
DMC, DLee, Drummond, Lilliard, Monta, Iggy these guys are Stars

I think Demar belongs with that second group of guys.

DeMar DeRozan is an incredibly inefficient scorer, horrible floor spacer, and has below average assist/turnover rate for his position. I think he can improve still, but I am not impressed at all with his game.

No one shooting below 30% from 3 should be jacking up 3+ attempts per game.
