i personally do see him getting serious consideration. Don't know if he will make it, but he WILL be in the discussion i am sure of it and deservedly so. He's been great this season (as have a few of our players).

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.
it is the coaches that will decide, no way we get a starter. It will be tough though, lots of big names at guard - wade, irving, wall, deron and a bunch of pretty good players after them with guys like jennings, afflalo, teague, kemba having great seasons. Even with rose/rondo out it will be tough. But given the history of the all star coaches selections, if we can stay above .500 and top 3-4, one raptor will make it. Just have a feeling it will be amir this year, coaches must love him even more than they do kyle.

unless a coach chooses him, he probably won't be there
I think it takes a few good performances against top teams.. other then that he doesn't really stand out, when I think of our teams recent success.. Lowry comes to mind first before Demar

DD can still improve parts of his game... but he's played his part in this team's turnaround. He's not another Rudy.
Teams already have started putting a good defender on Lowry, Stephenson was on him almost all game. I just think we should upgrade at DD's position and we could make a great playoff run, someone like an afflalo or something. DD's play has been slowly decreasing these past few games, hopefully he can turn it around. Als, it isn't just about the efficiency, it's that his defense sucks and he doesn't even look to pass the ball half the time he gets it

DD is fine but Instead if upgrading at his position,move Ross to the 2 and get a legit 3. The tough question is,who do you bring in? Available quality SF's are not easy to come by and at what price because it make take more than just moving DD.

Yea, I would love to do that. Ross is a good defender but he won't be able to keep up with big 3's, so hopefully a move will be made, at this point if MU doesn't want to be stuck in the middle and we are doing well, maybe he trys and get's good pieces to make a contender.
