    Well he was beating a dead horse. Dude wasn’t even on our team anymore.

    Plus we were all aware of Demars short comings. No one ever thought he was a tier 1 super star. We were all aware that he needed to put more effort in defending. We were aware that he wasn’t a great shooter from 3. Didn’t need 3 month lectures on it.

    But we also knew that Demar wasn’t the worst player. He and Lowry lead us to the conference finals. That was further than Vince or Bosh could take us. We enjoyed the longest stretch of playoff appearances with him. He was loyal. There were lots of reasons to still like the guy even though you knew he wasn’t really a top 20 player.

    I guess I just never understood the hate. You can acknowledge a players short comings and still apreciate him for other good things that he did.

    I think I agreed to do it and just never did lol, I wanted to help but I saw it as pointless. Guys don’t read petitions when weighing free agency decisions. Lol

    Yeah he had his chance here. From best development program in the league, to worst. He could have become something here.

    Yeah I considered it too, but I thought to myself “are people going to read a paragraph about demar and decide if they’re going to sign the petition off of that? No.”

    I liked him but he didnt seem worth the hassle it seemed like. We got Banton using the pick we got from SAC I think so Im good. Basically churned an undrafted that was an upcoming FA to a controllable young asset in Banton.

    Yeah, once they’re on the petition site, they’re signing.

    I just want Banton to get more pt. I agree with you, I believe in his potential over both Flynn/Davis.

    Banton getting the Siakam treatment maybe back in his rookie year. He should be good next year.

    He started the season strong. I feel like if he gets consistent minutes it would go a long way for him. But maybe nurse doesn’t feel he’s there just yet?

    I’m trying to envision what this team is transforming into.
    Can anyone remember a team that had a 7+ assist per game player, along with another 2 5apg players in the starting lineup?
    We have FVV and siakam basically hitting their final form, and I expect Barnes to be at 5apg by next season.

    Diaw Spurs come to mind. I’m also thinking of those Gasol/odom Lakers, but I’d have to check the stats to see if they met those thresholds.
