Default DeMar DeRozan vs. Gerald Green

Blog piece on DeMar

Physically, DeRozan and Green are almost identical. Both stand at 6í7″, 200 pounds, give or take a few. With 6í9″ wingspans and similarly impressive athletic ability, there is no glaring advantage going one way or the other. And itís surely not a question of talent. Itís never a question of talent. Talent is the most visible commodity one owns, especially for those that highly regarded in high school, college, and through the NBA draft process. DeRozan and Green both had the opportunity to make an impact on the league. But if thatís the case, then why is it that one is transforming into an efficient offensive weapon in the NBA, and the other is putting up inefficient numbers for a middling Russian team?
