            Love demars confidence early. If he can turn 4 double teamed jumpers a game into assists/drive and kicks, i will have nothing to complain about.
            It's Klaw Season. Time to hunt.

              Dude, why do you hate DeMar so much? It's just sickening how badly you want him dead. Like, did he accidentally eat your baby once? Geez man, settle down.

                  Lets tone it down for the Game Thread. There's a Demar thread if you'd like to carry this conversation on.

                      " Guard Kyle Lowry leads the NBA with a 13.0 assists-to-turnover ratio (26-to-2)." .....so....does that mean we can finally give him the starting job over Calderon?

                      "Toronto is 4-0 this season when leading after three quarters" When I started reading this I honestly thought it was going to say 4-0 when losing after three quarters

                          We need at least one of Amir/JV to have a chance of winning this game.

                            I've got to agree with this ... This might be our first real Challenge as well.
                            I guess Atlanta was ... but Washington is better.

                              Let's get the win boys, it's all well and good to beat the half-dead Thunder and the Magic's of the NBA but now it's time to get a W against one of the top teams in the East.
