You just ranted a little bit too much about one individual when your own arguments speak to a problem with the way the assembled whole fails to work.
Exactly...people like to join DeRozan and Bargnani
at the hips in terms of struggles but its two different situations. DD is 23,that's a lot of time/seasons in between 27,Bargnani's age. AB has completed twice as many seasons as DeRozan as well. Its understandable to have a little more patience for DD considering the way he has progressed but AB has reached his ceiling.
