    I'm not putting a twist on anything. My comments were made in response to this line of reasoning:





    And yes the general idea here being suggested IS in fact that DD is a cancer on the court (or at least he would be with KD). That's what's being discussed/debated. We're having a different discussion in the other thread (the DeRozan thread) about DC/KD vs DD/KD.

    In response to your post in there where you said:



    I said



    So no I haven't changed any narrative or spun anything, we're having two different arguments in the separate threads. And I have not mentioned OVOfest at all. Stop trying to reduce everyone who wants to keep DD to being a fanboy or twitter/vine basketball fan who doesn't know the game. I simply said that I think we would need to have DD in order to sign KD in the first place because DD is the guy on the Raptors that other players in the NBA consider to be a star (whether that's true or not).
    What you highlighted on my part says nothing about being a cancer, it states that Demar would take away from KDs effectiveness by being a terrible pairing for him to play off of.

      It doesn't matter who's he's talking to. Durant's not going to have his opinion swayed at a concert or baseball game.
      You and I know that.

      But some use this as a reasoning as a "pro" for the person sitting beside him.

        Exactly.

        We can't use same flawed logic both ways?

          Who was using this logic though? I guess someone was but I definitely wasn't.

          You can't keep lumping all the people who support DeRozan into the same group and assigning the same philosophies to all of them.

          I don't do that with the group of people who don't like DeRozan's game. For example, I understand that while Snooch and someone like DanH both want DD gone, they have very different perspectives on the team and even reasons for why they don't want DD here.

            Happens all the time on this board. I hate it myself no matter what side I'm on.

              And no one mentioned you in the post.

                        Do go on.

                        I'm honestly interested to hear what each of you thinks my stance is.

                          Honestly, I'm just referring to the fact that you can actually see value in DeMar, Snooch doesn't.

                            i have never once stated anything remotely close to that.

                            I have said he is very good at getting to the line.

                              This is what I was referring to as well. Dan's primary motivation for wanting to trade DD is that he thinks he's going to cost way more than he can actually earn. I imagine if DD were willing to sign for 15M per year, DanH might be inclined to keep him (in fact iirc DanH actually said that about 16M in one of the threads here).

                              However Snooch just wants DD gone at all costs, and it has nothing to do with his contract. I've known Snooch (not personally, just known of him) for a while actually because he used to post on RealGM and got banned from there for constantly trolling (mostly regarding DeRozan), and the guy just plain finds the idea of DeRozan being on the team revolting.

                              Maybe I'm wrong and DanH wants DD gone at all costs too (salary be damned) but I think the two of them have different perspectives there. I also find that DanH does a much better job of supporting his opinions, whereas Snooch will just make sarcastic comments.

                                I think "He is very good at getting to the line and that's it" is remotely close to DeMar doesn't have value.
