Unhappy My biggest problem with DeRozan

Why doesn't he try to dunk it on opposing players instead of trying to lay it up or draw the foul? He gets high enough, he has the momentum, he just tries to layup or draw the foul instead of dunk.. I don't understand why..

He has all the tools to become an amazing player in this league, specifically offensively.

because dunking it may be exciting but drawing fouls is more smart. I just wished he drove more to the rim to begin with..

Its not like drawing fouls/layups is working for him.

Dunks can be energizing, and change the face of games. The most frustrating part about watching him go up so soft, is realizing that he can easily dunk it down, or at least attempt to dunk it down.

Dunks are fun, but they still count for 2 points. And it's not like he doesn't dunk. I'd be more worried if all he had in mind was dunking.

He's just frustrating to watch at this point. The odd airball and his settling for jumpers is getting on my nerves.

As someone who can dunk, it's a lot more than just going up there and dunking. He has more ups than me, but it has to do with your mindset. I think he lost a bit of his drive to go to the hole this summer while working the J.

My other biggest problem is his tendency to shy away from contact.

Predictable is his drive and spin move. By midgard they were stopping the shit out of him cause they know he's just going to spin

no words can describe my frustration with him. his drives are so mechanic and slow. no handles. gets frustrated way to easily and loses focus. SHOWS FLASHES of being locked into the game on both ends, then is easily back to his passive, angry self.

Major tweener, needs to play in a different system. Can't shoot, can't dribble, can't defend the opposing 2. Small and lacks strength for the 3. There's so many holes in his game one can only hope his improvement happens really quick for him to stay here long term.

His problem is still his ballhandling. In the small window he has to get to the basket where there isnt more than 1 guy to come over and try to affect his shot, he's often either stumbling with the ball, or his gather takes too damn long and the window closes, and instead of the big just coming to affect his shot, the perimeter wing player comes over and gets infront of him as well and he ends up either getting stripped or running in to someone for the charge. He's not good enough either to slow up and kick it out if that 2nd defender comes over.

He's still got a long way to go with his ballhandling and thus decision making.

If he's going into his 4th season next year and still has problems with ball handling, decision making, shooting then he needs to be shipped outta town. As a shooting guard most of those atributes should be automatic, let alone take 4 +fuckin' years. Especially for a supposed gym rat.
