  • DeMar Doesn't Make the Cut & Misses the All-Rookie Team

    Not surprised though. Really didn't do much until the end of this season. He got one vote at least.

    Other players receiving votes, with point totals (first place votes in parentheses): Wesley Matthews, Utah, 16 (3); Omri Casspi, Sacramento, 13; Chase Budinger, Houston, 8; Ty Lawson, Denver, 7; Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia, 7 (1); Serge Ibaka, Oklahoma City, 6 (1); Toney Douglas, New York, 2 (1); Rodrigue Beaubois, Dallas, 1; Sam Young, Memphis, 1; DeMar, DeRozan, 1.

    Ya, no way I'd put him on the first team. I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't make second team, either. Doesn't really matter, though.

      We knew coming into the season that DeRozan probably wouldn't have a big time impact until the following season or beyond. In his one and only year at USC he struggled mightily until close to the end of the season leading into the tourney. When he "got it" he carried that team and they accomplished more than was expected. DeMar will get his recognition some day if he keeps working hard on his game.

        It's kinda weird that 1st, 2nd and 3rd all NBA teams are compromised of a PG, SG, SF, PF and C and this year's all-rookie team is compromised of 4 point guards/combo guards and 1 small forward.

          I'm not sure if the all-rookie team has ever been a positional award. I think it's always been about the best players of the class and its tough to argue those five aren't deserving.

            No surprise here, although not sure what Toney Douglas did to get on there. Put up average numbers on a crap team?

              Those guys that made it are very much deserving. Just funny, that's all.

                How do you have a team with 4 guards one under-undersized PF?

                Maybe they should rename it the top 5 rookie players instead of this team thingy.

                    I think it was partially due to the crap team being in NYC and the last quarter of the season he put up above average numbers (13.6PPG, 45% FG, 3.7AST, 3.2REB, 1.3STL).

                      It will be interesting to see how DeRozan does in this year's summer league.

                        Last quarter of the season?

                        That is almost as bad as projecting what Johnson would do as a full time starter off the last 4 games of the Raptors season

                          I'm not projecting anything. I'm telling you that in the last 20 games of the season he turned some heads. He finished strong and he's in a place that get lots of attention. That's why he made the list in my opinion. Discredit it all you like but he's on the list and so by all means axe my theory and come up with a better one. I'm all ears.

                              Uh, ahead of who? Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo, Russell Westbrook, Kevin Love, Danilo Gallinari, Eric Gordon, Brook Lopez, Jason Thompson, Courtney Lee, Nicolas Batum or George Hill?
