    If I were a millionaire I would also fly around the world to watch basketball just for kicks. Not sure I'd even consider it an achievement

    I doubt they were envious, seeing as Wall had surgery on both knees this summer and Beal used the time to recover from a stress fracture. Neither was a serious consideration for the Olympics due to injuries, along with virtually half the USA Basketball program that stayed home.
    John Wall was cut from the team USA in 2014 that Deebo made. Even if they were healthy during the summer K-low/Deebo would probably be a head of them after the year they had. In my humble opinion.

    Lol that backcourt has been overrated for a while. They're slowly coming to terms with reality. "We're not that good. We might actually need each other." Sounds like they were buying too much of their own hype.

    ”I think a lot of times we have a tendency to dislike each other on the court. … We got to be able to put that to the side. If you miss somebody on one play or don’t have something go right ... as long as you come to each other and talk. If I starting arguing with somebody I’m cool. I’m just playing basketball,” Wall said, according to CSN Mid-Atlantic.
    "Now that you have your money you got to go out there and improve your game,” Wall added. “I want you to be an All-Star just as much as I’m an All-Star. If we were playing well as a tandem like the other two superstars that play together as a backcourt, play as a tandem, one night it’s going to be his night, one night it’s going to be mine, some nights it might be both of us. Those are nights it’s going to be tough to beat us."

    "It’s tough because we’re both alphas. It’s always tough when you have two guys who firmly believe in themselves, who will bet on themselves against anybody else, who want to be that guy. We both can be that guy," Beal said, according to CSN Mid-Atlantic.

    "Sometimes I think we both lose sight of the fact that we need each other.” he continued. “I wouldn’t be in the situation I’m in without John. John wouldn’t be in the situation he’s in without me, without the rest of the team. It goes hand-in-hand so it’s kind of a pride thing. We got to (hash) out our pride, figure out what our goals are individually, help each other achieve those goals, figure out what our team goal is, where do we see ourselves five years from now, 10 years from now and go from there.”

    Stop trying to draw conclusions from games played against non-NBA players and with a team full of superstars.

    Judge it by what you saw and what we saw was the Lowry would be an incredible PG for a team of superstars because he actually plays that PG role (cough Kyrie cough) and plays hard D.

    Derozan barely played, which isn't really his fault, his game isn't great for international ball and he's behind Klay, Durant, Butler, George and Melo who can all play his positions.
    Agree, personally i'm comfortable with what I saw, however for some people the "eye test" is not convincing enough nor is the stat sheet.

    It looks like I gotta say it one more time,it's becoming a trend that if someone praises one Raptor's(anyone) good game or stat some people label him as an X or Y hater.
    I can honesly say I don't hate anyone on Raptors roster,true(just like everybody else) I like some players game more than others so if I say for instance I like Lowry's performance(or stat) that does not necessarily mean I hate Demar or anybody else and once I go by that stat I take the whole stat sheet concerning other players as well the same way.
    It's up to fans really if they want to believe certain stats or not,however that should not be a reason behind some personal attack.
    Since I posted that Olympic games stat sheet that some liked some not really,first this sheet is done down south for the US team that showed Raptors (Lowry and Derosan) ranked 1st and 4th in defensive rating on a team that was not really dedicated on the defensive end where players had limited amount of minutes on a short number of games,this alltogether gives me more than enough to believe in these stats,if I don't then I'm not gonna believe that cousins was first in offensive and net rating among players that stood out.

    Derozan with the fourth best defensive rating... So who still thinks drawing conclusions from this chart is a good idea.
    Aside from the fact those stats were accumulated vs. less-than-NBA competition.

    Damn, the Raptors would be contender-level with PG on the wing.
    "Most definitely"

    You won't get much debate this time. Most of the posters that love this stat hate DD. The fact that he looks good has them questioning this stat now.
