    Don't look now but DeRozan coming back to San Antonio next game.

    In his honor thought I'd post his most memorable and satisfying Spurs game in Leonard's return three years ago.

    Was at that game...greatest sporting event I've ever been to it was so much fun booing the out of Nephew...

    Looking forward to the tribute the Spurs give to Demar.

    Making his 5th #NBAAllStar appearance... DeMar DeRozan of the chicagobulls.


    Drafted as the 9th pick in 2009 out of USC, Demar_DeRozan is averaging 26.4 PPG, 5.0 RPG and 4.8 APG for the Bulls this season.

    Woah derozan getting starter votes thatís something would never saw coming after his 3 years here. Though somehow Wiggins is a west starter so it shows you how fickle fan voting is. Wiggins was the guy we were terrified of Spurs acquiring last summer giving up a pick.

    Wiggins is fool’s gold, just like Draymond. They’re drafting off of the gravity of Curry. Remember how useless Draymond was when Curry was out? Not an All Star. Not an All NBA player. Wiggins is still Wiggins.

    Wiggins will get no All NBA votes. All Star starter voting is meaningless.

    The All NBA reference was to the several sham appearances by Draymond.

    It’s a valid point. And should be applied to derozan when he has Lavigne, Ball, Vucevic and Caruso in his orbit, in my not so humble nor objective opinion

    I’m not advocating for Wiggins as an AS starter but he is having another solid season. That contract is still an over pay but c’mon man this isn't the same player from a few years back in Minny. He is playing really good basketball on BOTH sides of the ball.

    …and if you put him back on Minny, he’d revert to the same player.

    That’s how good Curry is. He generates massive amounts of gravity. Teams literally have to pick him up at half court, spreading their defense out, generating open shots for other players. Add Klay to the mix, and no defender is probably within 6-7 feet of Wiggins on any given play.

    I’m sure playing with Curry makes things easier. Doesn’t take away from how well he is playing in the defensive end guarding the opposing teams best wings every night.

    The alternative was losing him for nothing. They basically got back two first round picks for a guy who was going to leave anyways.

    Or they could’ve signed him back. But it’s clearly the PATFO was moving forward with the rebuild. Also I doubt DJM would be having an AS season sharing the facilitator responsibilities with Demar, likewise scoring, the same reason I think the rationale on moving Derrick, finally defining the PG role, and likewise giving Derrick the opportunity for Derrick to thrive as a facilitator elsewhere.

    I’m happy for Demar and I really think he’s deserving for the MVP consideration, but rebuilding is the way to go.

    Didn’t sound like he had any interest coming back. We would have had to give him absolute max money.

    if we had kept demar we would have been a playoff team for the next few seasons but no hope of getting to the finals. we would also have very little cap space and much little to no draft capital. on top of that, younger players would have been relegated to garbage time minutes as a result and DJ would not have made the climb to being the alpha of this team. the move still makes sense and we at least got something for him. i'm happy for demar but i will really judge him by how he performs in the playoffs as that where demar's greatness will ultimately be judged.

    I think DD is alot better than people give credit for. He seemed well liked by his teammates. And I think he got better from being in SA. Not surprised at all that he is excelling.

    Why do you think we’d be a playoff team? We haven’t for the last two years with him on the roster? Dejounte doesn't make the leap in stats if DD is still dominating the ball.
