Default Derozan has got to go

I've been saying it for a while now but DeMar DeRozan is simply not a player you build your team around.

He has got to go.

Who said the team was building around DD? And such an asinine post at this time. It's not like DD could be moved. Just enjoy the year. Everything is gravy right now.

Its not even about the Hawks game.

The Hawks game was tied when I posted this.

Its just an overall assessment of how bad Demar is and has been. Ever since his allstar selection he seems to be coasting.

Empty stats.

Wha? We only keep guys if they are "the man"? How do we field a full squad if almost everyone has got to go?

Its not even about that.

Its about the fact that he BELIEVES he is a superstar and the main man.

I think that fluke all-star selection really got to his head.

Coasting? The guy still gets to the line nearly 8 times a game. That's not coasting. If anything, he may be trying too hard. He's a big reason why the team is 14 games over .500 since the trade. He's not a franchise guy, but he's a very good piece to the long-term puzzle.

No, he is not a long-term solution to anything.

Trade Demar, give Ross those minutes and let a real shooting guard develop.

Demar only got into the league because of his athleticism and thats where most of his success comes from.

He has little to no actual basketball talent.

Another idiotic comment. You don't become a top-10 scorer without talent.

We get it. You don't like him. But don't try to rationalize your dislike for him by making asinine comments.

As for Ross, he doesn't have a high BB IQ and lacks the assertiveness to be a great to very good player. Good complementary guy but he's not a go-to guy.

You're right. I exaggerated.

Honestly though, his play style is just UGLY. I don't know how you guys are able to stomach watching him pull up for long twos and brick them repeatedly. It's like Rudy all over again.

& don't even get me started on how bad he is on the defensive end...

He's rebounding, setting up his teammates, and his defende is better (not great, though). He works hard and he wants to win. There are a lot of things he can improve upon, but he's made tremendous strides this year.

This year was suppose to be a rebuilding year and one of growth. I'm enjoying watching this team play and each player develop. Every win is a bonus. While the team is in third in the conference, we have to keep in mind what this year is about.
