DD's improved his passing and his energy on defence(recently), but his offensive efficiency is still barely above average. Amir is the teams defensive anchor and the primary reason why we've become so good defensively. His rotations are pristine.
And Demar is the reason that we're in games offensively. He's good enough to carry the offense for stretches and is the only player other than Lowry who can create his own shot.

Without him Lowry would have to avg 30 & 15 for us to have any chance.
