Default DeMar DeRozan Inteview: "I'm going to try to save as much as I can for Saturday"

From a Hoopshype interview.

Some highlights:

Quote:
What are you working on when you are practicing? Are you working on new stuff or are you trying to perfect stuff that youíve done before?

DD: I think a little bit of everything. Trying to be, you know, creative. Try to come with a new twist.
Quote:
Were you surprised that you didnít get picked to play in the Rookie-Sophomore Game?

DD: Yeah, I was definitely surprised. I felt like Iíve been a big contributor to my team this year Ė especially starting on a team that is in the playoff hunt. But I just try to look past it Ė Iíve got bigger and better things to worry about as the season goes on.
Quote:
Whatís been the hardest part of the transition from USC to the pros?

DD: Already playing 50 games in a shorter period of time especially coming off my only college season playing about 28, 30 games over a span of five, six months.

Is it mentally that it wears on you or is your body getting tired from it?

DD: I try to take care of my body, but Iíd have to say mentally. Travelling. Just everything comes in to play, especially your first year.

Jamario wasn't that big of a disappointment.
it was just the fact that he hyped everything up too much with placing the tape near the 3pt line...
that was just dumb

i know he's from compton and all, but even if he pulls off some great dunks and deserves to win, who's to say he won't get vote-raped by the millions and millions of laker fans. this is why "saving it" concerns me. i think you gotta lay it all on the floor friday, except for maybe your very best dunk.
