    I loved what I saw from him with the Kobeseque turnaround jumper! I need to see him handle the ball better still. At 45secs he looks like he still needs to work on hs dribbling and ball handling.

    Colangelo seemed to be very high on DeRozan in his exit interview.

    You know what's funny though? Vince Carter wanted to be traded and didn't want to wait for Bosh to develop (recall he wanted the #4 pick traded away to begin with). Now Bosh wants to leave and doesn't want to wait for DeRozan to develop. Assuming DeRozan turns into the star shooting guard that Bosh thinks a teams needs to win, I find this very ironic.
    If he had a Reke, Curry, or even Jennings sort of rookie year, it would be an easier sell I guess. Plus, it sorta doesn't seem bright to bank your future on an unproved rookie who lost his starting job to Sonny Weems. At least, it would be pretty illogical.

    Still, I hope that DeMar works very hard and comes back substantially better next year.

    I'm not too impressed by his turn around J 'cause it doesn't look like he gets enough elevation to it - might be easily blocked in the NBA.
    He's definitely stepping far enough back to make up for it.

    Scott.

    WOW dude's head was at the rim on that block. If he can bring that type of defence next year ill be very happy. It would be nice to see DD work on chasing down defenders and erasing shots.

    DeRozan will continue to get better.

    I think his problem is that long time Raptors fans are expecting him to be a scorer like T. Mac or VC. That is tall order to fill. However, if Bosh leaves DeRozan scoring should benefit from that.

    So if Bosh leaves and add that this would be DeRozan's second season under those circumstances I could seeing DeRozan averaging 15+ in 2010-11.

    Of course his defense is his real weak spot and I doubt that he is working on that in the Drew League. I also don't think that he will get to work on it too much in Las Vegas next month, unless Carlesimo is there to work with DeRozan, Weems? and whoever the Raptors draft on their defense.

    Impressive highlights, jumper looked pretty smooth even if it was against "token" defense.

    Some actually numbers on percentage of jump shots blocked this season

    D. Howard 13%
    Johnson 10%
    Stoudemire 7%
    P. Gasol 6%
    O'Neal 6%
    Boozer 4%
    Bosh 4%
    KG 2%

    Percentage of Inside Shots blocked

    O'Neal 13%
    Boozer 13%
    Stoudemire 9%
    Bosh 9%
    P. Gasol 8%
    D. Howard 7%
    Johnson 6%
    KG 5%

    Percentage of Total Shots blocked


    Boozer 8.59%
    O'Neal 8.31%
    Stoudemire 7.98%
    D. Howard 7.78%
    P. Gasol 7.22%
    Johnson 6.84
    Bosh 6.30%
    KG 2.90%

    So overall KG is by far and a way the one who gets the least amount of his shots blocked among these big men.

    Johnson rated 3rd which isn't too bad, right behind Bosh who was 2nd

    Johnson 10% - LOL I think he needs a lot of work here. That is an understatement

    It looks oh so easy when you are killing dudes that don't play in the NBA.

    I thought the elevation on his jumper wasn't bad. He faded a we bit on it too, which will really help him prevent blocks. I'm just happy that his shot is falling like that and I am getting excited for next year. Not to put too much pressure on him, but could this be the next raptors franchise player? BC did send him to represent us at the draft and with Bosh on the way out, it could be DeRozen time. Anyone know how he's been playing defensively?

    I bet this will easily get blocked too when he hits his head against the rim

    In fact he could get a concussion from this. Maybe the NBA needs to set up a "No Fly" zone for players like DeRozan lest he hit his head on the rim and his shot get easily blocked.

    I think maybe the Raptors should trade him, after all we don't want anyone on the team whose turnaround jumper may easily get blocked

    R U F**king kidding me.
