I've seen him look for guys to pass to more as the season progressed. What really bugs me though, is that so much about the Raptors offense promotes taking the first shot available. You'll see long stretches of one pass and a shot, with guys doing everything one-one-five sprinkled in there in good doses. There's not a lot of emphasis on options. Last game DeMar made a nice drive to the basket, only to find three defenders in the lane. OK great - so he'd done his job, and he had stayed away from being too aggressive only to get stuffed. But where were the options for him? There was nobody on offense reacting to what he was doing and making themselves available. I really hope that whole situation gets better before the season ends, because DeMar looks to be one of the more willing passers this team has.
