Weems: Trade to Toronto a "blessing from God"



Quote:
"I think first coming here, I was rushing things. I was a second-round draft pick and trying to do everything to impress the coaches. Now, I'm settled in with the Toronto Raptors, I'm more comfortable showing my total game and being an energy player. Now I'm trying to show my all-around talents."

Weems went as far as to call his move from Denver to Toronto a 'blessing from God,' as he's meshed well with the team's other young guns namely second-year guard DeMar DeRozan, another high-flying wing who was the Raptors' first-round pick in 2008 and scored 16 points on Saturday.
Quote:
Meanwhile, outside spotlight won't be adding much pressure, either, as much of the national basketball world will have its attention now mostly glued to the situation that has formed in Miami.

The Raptors, who finished 40-42 last season and missed the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference by just one game, plan on growing in the shadows and making the mini-rebuilding effort a quick process.

"We love it All of the pressure is on them," Weems said. "They just put a bullseye on themselves, with everybody expecting them to win. So when a couple of young guys go in there and we beat them, it's gonna be a problem. So I'm glad everybody's focused on them.

"They're not focused on the Raptors and that's a big advantage for us."

Reminds me of when Keon Clark came here as an unknown part of the Kevin Willis / Tracy Murray trade.

Guy got a fair chance to prove himself and he totally loved it here.

Weems would kick their asses. He has more flare and lift then Derozan and it's not that close, Amir would be dead last.
