Default DeMar's Continuing Education

From Doug Smith's Blog.

A little teaching time

I imagine none of you see this because the lights arenít on and the broadcast hasnít started but about 90 minutes before each game, assistant coach Eric Hughes and DeMar DeRozan sit down for a little tutorial that I finally got around to asking about.

Itís either on the bench or in the seats but they sit there with a laptop for about 10 or 20 minutes deep in conversation.

Because Iím an astute observer of things, I figure theyíre not watching GruntTV (although who could blame them if they are) and I ask Eric about it last night.

Seems what theyíre watching is video of DeMar from the previous game, going over what he did right, and what he did wrong.

With some many people offering so much advice to a 20-year-old rookie, the staff figures if he gets some quiet time before a game going over what happened the last time out and what he can correct, itís going to do more to stay fresh in his mind when that nightís action gets under way.

Itís a good teaching tool, and a smart thing to do. Make fresh in his mind the mistakes he might have made so he doesnít repeat them.

Small thing but, perhaps, with big dividends.

That's pretty cool, though DD, just has to shake the nerves out.

I wonder if Jennings has to sit down with a laptop before games

I predicted the "not drafting Jennings Sourness" would infest RF

people are to bitter, I haven't even made a complaint against drafting DD and admit that Jennings is only putting up spectacular numbers because of his position in Milwaukee. I was only the thread creator, not one of the fanboys.

Stop with that "should drafted Jennings". What is Thabeet doing, Rubio, Hill with Knicks, Stephen Curry sucks as well. DD need some time and some touches.
