I like DeMar, I really do, and I hope he continues to improve and prove most of us wrong, but the money that Colangelo keeps throwing at these unproven players borders on ridiculous, especially given his flip flops between "rebuilding" and "contending now".

Agreed Q. I don't like DeRozan any less than I did before the extension, but I sure as hell like Colangelo less.

But seriously - any time you can pay $60 million combined to DeMar DeRozan and Landry Fields, you have to do it.


Had a good laugh over this one.

It's odd how universally panned this deal is. Usually you find some writer trying to find the tiny bright-side.

The worst part of this is that Lowry and Valanciunas are a pretty solid combo to start your "core" with. Neither are or probably will be superstars but it's encouraging. But now how do you add significant pieces around those two guys when you have so much money tied into mediocrity (Derozan, Bargnani, Johnson, Fields, Kleiza) over multiple years? Drafting a low-ceiling player like Ross doesn't help either.

Love Lowry and Val, literally hate everyone else because of either their play, their contract or both.

This.

I'm still a fan of Calderon, but he doesn't belong here anymore and should be moved for future pieces. Hopefully to a team I don't hate.

If DD keeps this up, he'll be worth that contract in no time. Want to see how he does against OKC and other tough teams.

This Minnesota game was a step in the right direction. His defense was actually quite solid too although guarding the corpse of Brandon Roy doesn't seem that hard.

He did pretty well against Joe Johnson yesterday as well.

Two games does not a career make....

Nor a contract justification....

But it is positive and interesting (!! ) to see Derozan and Lowry lead Bargnani and Jonus in total rebounds.

Not just Bargs and Val, but Amir and Ed too in total rebounding.
