Overreactionary thread #29244234234724.

10 of you are high as fuck. Demar doesn't deserve to make it. If a Raptor is going to make the allstar game this year, it's going to be Lowry. Demar isn't even the second best player on the team(Amir is)

Amir was not very good the first 6 weeks of the season. Overall DD has had a more consistent season. That and the Forward position is stacked, no way Amir would even get a sniff.

Make that 11 people in this thread who are high as fuck.

I love Amir's heart and hustle but you're downplaying DD's contributions to the extreme.

Because we were saying why DD won't be an all-star ........which IS the topic. Didn't mean to piss in your beer, just opinions.

Nah, I think Amirs been more important to us WINNING games than Demar. Amir is one of the best defensive big men in the NBA, and his pick and roll defence is probably top 5 in the league(name 5 other big men that would be able to contain, contest, and be able to draw the charges that Amir did TWICE vs Stephenson tonight). DD's improved his passing and his energy on defence(recently), but his offensive efficiency is still barely above average. Amir is the teams defensive anchor and the primary reason why we've become so good defensively. His rotations are pristine.

if demar makes it over lowry, it would be a travesty
lowry is the mvp of this team and it's not close.

And Demar is the reason that we're in games offensively. He's good enough to carry the offense for stretches and is the only player other than Lowry who can create his own shot.

Without him Lowry would have to avg 30 & 15 for us to have any chance.

Lol hell naw turnover assist ratio. Imagine Derozan gets a minute on the floor on his first possession then bounces the ball of his foot.

Hell no. Demar is no where near good enough to make the all-star game. As soon as gay left, Demar has sucked. I am hopeing he gets traded before his stock drops

If Demar ever makes allstar, it will be this year.

I think Klow deserves recognition too, but lets face it likely only one player from Raptors will make it assuming we get 4th seed or better. Klow has contributed in more areas and leadership but it will be Demar due to his scoring, unfortunately that's how the general public measures a successful player. Now if its coaches decision, then maybe klow can get in.

You do realize that defenses are keying in on him now right? As opposed to when Gay was here?

His efficiency has taken a hit but sucked? Uhhhh.... no.

Yea I know that's the reason why he has been inefficient but he doesn't need to jack up shots just to get some points on the board. I have been realizing that a lot more. He often overlooks JV and other players just to take an ill advsed shot. i am sorry but we will probably be an even better team if we could either bring in someone for defense to stop D'ing up on DD so much or to trade him.

Then they start doubling Lowry... or putting their best defender on him and HIS efficiency drops. What then?

DD can still improve parts of his game... but he's played his part in this team's turnaround. He's not another Rudy.

Maybe we can push for DD and lowry, even Jv.

brand the vote for the all star.
it will be cool to have an all star this season. especially if we compete for the 3rd seed.

i just didi it. each of us every day and one of our boy could very well be on the eastern team !

Those who can't accept the idea that DeRozan might become an All Star this season,brace yourself. If the Raps are in the playoffs around selection time he will get in.

The NBA loves to promote new and young talent and DeRozan (a member of USA Basketball by the way) has a brighter future than Lowry at this point seeing how he's 24. Even if Lowry has been more consistent and valuable to the Raps this season(which is debatable), Demar's numbers are good enough to the general observer who may not follow the Raps beyond the box score,stats and standings, to get the nod.

Personally,I'll be happy if any player on this team gets to rep the Raptors for the East but I'm rooting for DD to get the selection because the "experts" left him off the top 100 and top 25 under 25 and we still have Raps fans who don't think he even deserves consideration for the game and think it would be a "travesty" if he did make the roster. Would love to see DD stick it to his doubters!
