Default DeMar Getting Love from NBA.com

Quote:
What DeRozan does best is get to the basket. Not only has he had several highlight-reel dunks (check out this one on the Bulls), but he's getting to the line, where he's done a large part of his damage.

"It's like figuring out how to talk to a girl -- you finally know what to say," DeRozan said Tuesday after going 7-for-7 on free throws in the Raptors' 94-88 win over the Wolves. "I have an infatuation with the line. I just want to get there; it's easy points."

Last Week: NR | Drafted: 9
Possibly the most exciting news to come from DeRozan this week is his confirmation to SLAM Online that he will be participating in the dunk contest All-Star Weekend in Dallas. In case you're not familiar with DeRozan's skills, check out clips on YouTube from 2008, when he won the McDonald's Dunk Contest after his senior year of high school. Kid Dynamite might just have a chance -- LeBron or no LeBron.

NBA.com posted a video of DeMar's dunk after Tuesday's game and called it "Kid Dynamite on the Break."

Looks like it's catching on......

"I have an infatuation with the line. I just want to get there; it's easy points."

I like what he's saying here.

It seems he actually gives a damn about developing into a well rounded player.

What I really like about this kid is that I dont see the ballhogging I see in the likes of Jennings, Evans and Flynn. And he barely makes rookie mistakes.
