no way, the kids got an ugly jumper and can't even dunk (Refer to delfino) plus he looks very weak on the court.

This guy is our weakest link on offense and defense. He needs to come off the bench. Good teams are just gonna abuse him, he has no jumper and cant dribble so he cant create any shots for others.His hops are slightly above average so he wont be dunking it on athletic NBA power forwards or centres. You can easily steal the ball from him every time he dribbles and he cant throw proper passes. During competitive games good teams will just abuse him like he got abused by Joe Johnson tonight.

No way will he ever be Iguodala. Obviously it's early and i hope i'm wrong but unless he puts on 30+lbs and gains alot more power and gains a 3pt shot he won't become Iggy at all. He can always improve his range and overall shooting but the rest is easier said then done. Plus his hops haven't impressed me.

Why the hell doesn't the guy work on his 3 point shot. Hes not doing a good job of addressing his weaknesses. If I was a shooting guard and shooting 3s was my biggest weakness i would throw up 5000 3 point shots every day in game speed. Also why does he still have shitty dribbling. If you want to compare him to Kobe, Kobe had the smoothest dribbling when coming out of high school. Derozan still doesn't know how to do that. He needs to work on that like crazy.

He's taken 162 shots this season going into tonight, 150 of them weren't 3's. The fact is he's shooting 34% from 3 and doesn't take many. One thing i like is that he doesn't take many 3's (4-12 all season) and often looks to attack which is what he should be doing. I just find him to be undersized right now and overmatched most nights, which i guess is to be expected. A player like him needs the right coaching and sadly he won't get that with Triano here.

Anything that still sucks can be explained by getting adjusted to the level, the team, his role, summed up in being a rookie. On top of that he's a raw talent. Basicly he has to work on everything still. Jumpshot is not the most important imo because if there's one thing Raps don't lack it's jumpshooters.
