I know it's just preseason, but Demar has shown signs of improved confidence and efficiency compared to last season. The growth of JV and Demar are the reasons I'm excited to watch basketball this season, while Rudy gay hasn't shown much difference other then increased weight.
I realize that before Rudy came to toronto, Demar was constantly shut down offensively by other teams, and having gay here opened up a lot of space for him to work with.
Yes Derozan doesn't provide much during games where he is shut down offensively, and that's his weak point. At this point of his career, he is not good enough to be 1st or 2nd option on a good team.
But if he can translate his confidence into higher FG% and more assists & FTAs, he can be a good bargain for the contract we gave him.
Not to mention the passion he has for the city of Toronto
