Those who can't accept the idea that DeRozan might become an All Star this season,brace yourself. If the Raps are in the playoffs around selection time he will get in.
The NBA loves to promote new and young talent and DeRozan (a member of USA Basketball by the way) has a brighter future than Lowry at this point seeing how he's 24. Even if Lowry has been more consistent and valuable to the Raps this season(which is debatable), Demar's numbers are good enough to the general observer who may not follow the Raps beyond the box score,stats and standings, to get the nod.
Personally,I'll be happy if any player on this team gets to rep the Raptors
for the East but I'm rooting for DD to get the selection because the "experts" left him off the top 100 and top 25 under 25 and we still have Raps fans who don't think he even deserves consideration for the game and think it would be a "travesty" if he did make the roster. Would love to see DD stick it to his doubters!
