    The system is built around DeRozan this year. With Aldridge shooting 3s the spacing is built to give DeMar enough room in the paint, but the team is not really successful doing that.

    Last year and the year before they played through Aldridge a lot more. And while that results into a 1st-round exit 95% of the time, the sample size is large enough to know that Aldridge-Ball at least gets you into the postseason.

    Isn't it because DeRozan that Pop HAS to start Forbes? If DeRozan had a 3 point shot, then no one would have such strong feelings for DeRozan.

    Biggest problem is Pop. Then flip a coin: Dumbmar heads/Bryn tails. Then LMA. Then Rudy. Then Marco. Lots of stoopid losers on this team.

    Biggest problem is the construction of this team. Sure there are combinations that people want but even those combinations would probably be just good enough for an 8th seed.

    Not that DeRozan doesn't cause his own problems.

    No. Bryn doesn't shoot 3s much better than white, and his overall shooting % is worse. On a much smaller sample size, Lonnie actually shoots 3s better than Bryn, and his overall shooting % is much better. I would even start Patty over Bryn. Bryn's ability to stretch the D is a myth.

    8th is better than where we are and where we will end up. But, yes, as we all know, Pop has put together a terrible roster, and he plays rotations that make it even worse.

    Demar is a career net negative. But no. Certain players are playing too much, certain players are playing not enough. Certain players are starting when shouldn't be, and closing when shouldnt be.

    Dude still starting with or without Frozen. Are you inferring he will still start but play less with DeFrozen out? Its been Only 2 games, how to yo make such a leap to conclude that he will stop starting or play his pet less minutes.

    Then tell me why he still starts and also tell it to Pop.

    Pop isn't going to stop starting Forbes because DeRozan is taking a break for two games. And Forbes doesn't need the ball in his hands like White and Murray do to be effective.

    White, Murray and DeRozan all need the ball in their hands and can't forget about Ma Touches. I'm still counting one basketball out there.

    So are you now saying he WONT Start Bryn if DePression is OFF the team and he only did it because he was HURT?

    Everybody in this community knows there is no reason in the world Pop IS NOT going to start Bryn and give him minutes as long as they are THE COACH and his is a PLAYER on that coaches Teams ROSTER. You said this man

    Not may fault you don't realize you are making an IF function with this statement

    Isn't it because DeRozan that Pop HAS to start Forbes? If DeRozan had a 3 point shot, then no one would have such strong feelings for DeRozan.
    an if function is

    Something is true when something happens and the opposite is true when it doesn't


    IF(derozen has a three point shot) THEN(POP Doesn't HAVE to start BYRN FORBES)


    I'll make another If Function

    IF you don't realize what youre saying when writing a IF fucntion THEN you

    racking my brain here.

    There is no doubt in my mind that if we played faster with Murray pushing it and White and Walker on the wings, we would be a better team. Part of the reason we struggled is DDR’s iso ball, spacing issues since he doesn’t shoot the 3 and his lack of defensive intensity unless he’s playing the Raptors. My main reason for wanting to trade him was to open up the offense. Kind of like when the Raptors traded Rudy Gay and they started to win. Sometimes fit plays a huge role in the success of a team and he’s just a bad fit.

    Not exactly. He'll never be a true #1, nor will he ever win a le because he prices himself out of being on a championship team with his contracts and touches, but you can win with him in theory.

    The issues are that Pop is holding the team back with his decision making which has, most importantly of all, led to the construction of a roster that is just not very good.

    Forbes and Marco over Walker and Carroll is the biggest frustration at this point. Beginning of the year Murray and White were both bad as well so it's not all om DeRozan for sure but he is definitely not worth his contract. He needs to take a role as a 3rd/4th option if he wamts to contend.
