Can DeRozan become that guy?Hows Bargnani looking? Any better?
DeRozan isn't a very good ball handler yet and that's holding back his dribble penetration.Bargnani has added more of an inside game to his offense but he still runs out of gas late in games and is a poor rebounder and help defender. He does have offensive skills that are pretty unique on a mobile 7 footer.

In my opinion, they aren't going to get any better with Reggie Evans starting. I think Amir Johnson plays that position WAY better. Evans is a good rebounder, but it ends there. At least Amir can score the odd layup.That, and Sonny Weems needs to play more. The guy is probably their best dribble penetrator. His jump shot is fairly streaky, but he's getting a lot better. There was a point at the end of last season where I thought he was their best player. He has the potential to be really good if he got consistent minutes.I'm going to my first Raptors game next Friday. I'm pretty pumped.
Reggie is horrible at everything a basketball player needs to be able to do except for rebound. Amir is a far better player but he is just so foul prone. Last night against Orlando he was playing great but only for 16 minutes of floor time since he fouled out. I'm hoping once Ed Davis is healthy that Reggie's minutes are taken way back or that they can trade him to somebody since he does have an expiring contract.I think Sonny has a chance to be a pretty good player. He needs to work on his offensive decision making, he can hoist up some shots too quickly but overall I like his game a lot.That's the Rockets game right ?I should be at that one too.
