I love Demar, but it will be cooler when he matures to the point where he doesn't need to be fantasy Kobe/MJ, opting to forego great position at the top of the free throw line and dribble out past the three.
All he had to do was hold the ball after receiving the pass from Jose and he had Utah firmly by the balls. Just hold and wait; throw in a couple fakes with 4 seconds left; make a shot or make a pass for a wide open shot - game over. Instead we got the whirly dirly nonsense.
But I still love him - he just needs to mature still.
