Demar scored 27 points with 11 rebounds in the drew league and was apparently a threat from 3.

He was like 1 for 12 in the USA basketball scrimmage and that level of competition is much closer to NBA than drew league.

Nerves? First time playing at that level of competition in limited minutes... just sounds like he pulled a Ross.

The drew league is a lot easier but Durant scored just 5 points more in a lot more minutes... he also got out rebounded by DeRozan.

Still a positive in my eyes. Just another way to build confidence.

DeRozan's shooting technique is a little old school to be a phenom from downtown. He cups the ball near his ear. This makes it more difficult to align your shot at long distance. It makes for a high arcing shot which is helpful. Nice ballspin can be attained. But... You can end up losing a feel for the shot because you are rolling the ball off your palm, and there are more hinges in this style of shooting. More places for the ball to wander. I'd keep him inside 18 feet. Aggressive takes to the basket and stop and pops is where DeRozan can be most affective. Use his athleticism instead of huckin' deep balls. That's why ya'll got Novak. Let him worry about hits and misses, DeRozan's got enough on his plate running the Raptors offense.

Anyone can be effective from 3, form is irrelevant.

Lol Drew League. I'm sorry but that isn't something which we should use as a measuring stick?Are OKC fans worried that KD had a bad game in the "Drew League" - no-probably not.

I think he'll be a more confident and reliable three point shooter,but not a threat. That's Ray Allen,Kyle Korver territory. For him to become that good,it won't happen over night. Also,I think his ability to post up and draw fouls is something that shouldn't be overlooked because he's amongst the best at that. I'd be afraid that he might fall in love with the 3 but hopefully it does become a useful weapon in his arsenal at the least.

This post has so much more info in it than 99.9% of posts that its far from irrelevant. You could even disagree but its not irrelevant.

DD's been invited to USA Select Team before and he's been a starter for the past 3 seasons (in the nba) and was handed the starting spot @ sg (although not playing major minutes like the following seasons) in his rookie season, so nerves is no excuse.

I feel like one of the big mistakes in DD's shot is the way he holds the ball. He palm's it with his left hand pretty much on top of it, that makes his release much more glitched.

WTF, look at his form. That's horrawful. Why's his left hand so on top of the ball? It's like it's trying to stop his shot from leaving lol

Lots of good shooters put their hands on top of the ball. It's not good form but it's not that big of a deal.
