    I don't mean to derail the thread, since there are a couple threads where this conversation would be more appropriately had, but the point you made is precisely why it's baffling to me that Casey...

    The flip side to this would be to think about being a GM building a team from scratch. Would you prefer DeRozan, a one-dimensional player who needs to have a delicately structured team built around...

    From the TSN article, this sums up the DeRozan debates around RR quite succinctly.



    On one hand, DeRozan is an all-NBA caliber scorer.

    On the other hand, the court has two ends and the...

    The DeRozan/JV bench unit without Lowry has proven to be a terrible lineup. It's not anybody's fault, but rather the chemistry of the unit as a whole. There are better lineup combinations that help...

    Yes, that's my point exactly. On one hand you suggest that you don't want JV carrying lofty scoring expectations, but on the other hand you want him to become the team's 6th man. That doesn't add...

    How does being the 3rd/4th/5th option in the starting lineup carry more scoring responsibility than the 6th man role, which it typically reserved for a one-dimensional, reliable bench scorer?

    There have been at least 3 or 4 offseasons when DeRozan and/or the team came out and stated 3pt shooting was his priority, and it often resulted in early season improvements, before crashing back to...

    DeRozan has definitely improved from being the one-dimensional volume chucker he once was, and I am happy to admit that.

    Having said that, there are still significant flaws in his game that...

    My roster had 12 players that made the 2K squad.

    I didn't take Calderon, Lou or Ross. I opted for a more balanced lineup with Camby, Ibaka and Jalen Rose instead.

    That team has way too many...

    If I excluded McGrady from this list, I would probably start Christie or Peterson start at SF (3&D), and add Williams (the original JYD) to the bench.

    I still prefer a more traditional starting lineup, knowing that the starting 5 doesn't necessarily equate to most minutes played.

    C: Camby
    PF: Bosh
    SF: McGrady
    SG: Carter
