Don't like that early season schedule, 6 of first 9 on the road, but maybe the team will bond together early on the road.
2 key quotes from Demar (at the end of the article)
1. "He takes a hell of a lot of pressure off me and vice versa," DeRozan said of Gay. "A lot of people get into the analytic stuff -- we don't pay no attention to that because we know how much we can help this team. As long as we play on the defensive end, we don't have to worry about scoring -- nothing, none of that -- because we can score the ball at will."
Like the sentiment, and hope they back it up in games.
"I want to be that guy who stuck through the tough times and made it when the sun came out," he said. "Once we get to winning, everything else in the past will be forgotten. It's easier to want to be somewhere else and play on a good team, but this is where I want to be and overcome all of that."
Demar and Amir are probably two of the biggest Toronto lovers in team history. That kind of positive vibe could be key for locking up Lowry, and/or Gay or bringing in a new player and adjusting them to playing in Canada.
