You would be the first person to discount Wade's value at this point. But you want to make a case now that Bosh is just playing in his wake? C'mon. You obsess over dumb stuff. Was pippen just an ordinary player? How is it that so many hall of famers played alongside other hall of famers? It doesn't seem right. They should be off somewhere carrying a team by themselves and not bothering with meaningless crap like winning championships and getting the most out of their talents.

Kyrie Irving should not be in the all star game. With all the talent in Cleveland and they still can't get their shit together? Fucking joke. At least Wall and the Wizards are making a playoff run.

From espn stats and info, which is doing a series on potential reserves

All-Star cast: The case for DeRozan, Lawson - Stats & Info Blog - ESPN

Quote:
DeMar DeRozan
In his fifth NBA season, DeRozan is averaging career highs in points, rebounds, assists and minutes played for the Toronto Raptors. Only 10 players in the NBA are averaging at least 21 points, four rebounds and three assists per game this season. DeRozan is one of them. Six of the other nine are All-Star Game starters.

One of the keys for DeRozan and the entire Raptors team has been trading away Rudy Gay. Since the trade, the Raptors are 16-9, after being 7-12 at the time of the deal. The trade allowed Toronto to make DeRozan the focal point of its offense, as his usage percentage has increased from 26.2 percent to 29.4 percent.

DeMar DeRozan This season
Before and After Rudy Gay Trade
Before After
Off eff 100.2 106.4
Def eff 101.6 101.2
Usg pct 26.2% 29.4%
+/- -1.2 +3.0

As a result, the Raptors offensive and defensive efficiencies have improved by a combined 6.6 points per 100 possessions with DeRozan on the floor.

The change in the way the Raptors have used DeRozan has also contributed to his rise in success, as he has been used less in isolations and more as a pick-and-roll ball handler.

DeRozan has been used as the pick-and-roll ball handler on a career-high 20 percent of his plays, up from his previous career mark of 13 percent. He scores on over 43 percent of those plays, which would rank him 12th in the NBA (minimum 100 P&R plays).
