Who would you rather take? Personally its not even a question for me I would take Tyreke Evans
Based on potential i'll pick derozan..but on who's better right now..i'll take Reke Havoc
Reke hands down
Reke because he could play PG and SG.
Tyreke is just so much more skilled than Demar. Demar might have more explosiveness, but Tyreke is more versatile and brings much more to the table than Demar.
Thats a toss up. It really depends on what the team needs.
Tyreke W/O question.
If you already have a pg like some teams, you take Derozan right.
Yeah that is what I was thinking.
Not so true, stop basing all of your choices in Derozan discussons on his hype out of high school. For all the hateon Holiday, Derozan had WAYYYYYY worse season than he was supposed to have. Tyreke has shined at every level he's beenasked. And it's no problem him being a pg or sg because heis the type of player who's gonna have the ball in his hands most of the time either way similar to Wade,Crawford,Johnson. If not then he's ateast a little Larry Hughes, with MUCH better decision making.
TYREKE all day, not even a question. DeRozan will be Gerald Green. Evans will be... Rodney Stuckey. I didn't see it till I was looking through the past drafts, but I think Evans reminds me a lot of Stuckey. Just talented getting north and south and finishing, 6-5 combo guard. Not the best shot and if he ever gets one LOOK OUT.
DeRozan is not mentally ready to compete at a high level for 82 games. I was going to say he's young, but so is Evans. I think both have potentially bright futures.
I don't think any team should take Tyreke Evans over Demar DeRozan. I like Reke's point guard skills and I think he will be a good pro. However, I've seen Demar Rozan play in person before. He has an NBA smoothness to his game that is hard to describe. The Gerald Green comparisons make sense, but I can't really see DeRozan not being a good NBA player.
Tyreke will probably have a better rookie year though.
^^^ The same way Qyntel Woods was a surefire NBA player? Or Shawne Williams? Asside from everything I've pointed outabout Derozan, is the fact he doesn't have a stars mindset. He's too content with doing what he's asked. Never going that extra mile to be the best. Derozan has such a ways to go to even be a consistent rotation player. Doesn't even have the Lateral quickness to be a Dahntay Jones yet. Derozanis SOOOO raw. Mayo was consdered to hav a por season at USC last year at like 18 4 and 3..Derozan avg what? like 12 pts?....very underachieving if you ask me. So why the hate on Holiday for underperforming when he was NEVER as highly touted as Derozan Was and still is. Bad thing is, I'm aDerozan fan. I'm just tryin be honest and not ri the banwagon of a guy who is only being talked about b/c of allthe hype. Which again, he never lived upto. Had he gone back to school this would b a worthwhile argument, but he chose to come out aftr just one year , having several MAJOR flaws in is game, therefore, he'll have to work his ass off like Outlaw did (which up to this point he hasn't put in the effort to do) or he's gonna end u just like Gerald. or even a personal fav of mine James White.
How can we say a guy who's only played High School ball, and in a lower-level conference and never had the ball put in his hands in an NBA game has better decision making then Larry Hughes. Smh, crazy. This guy made many poor decisions at times, when I watched him, taking shots from long-range destroying the rhythm of the offense, and just forcing his way when things just weren't there and picking up a considerable # of offensive fouls. I still like him though as a talent, but we're yet to know if he can adapt to being a 3rd, 4th or 5th option and not having the ball in his hands if his put solely at the 2. But yea, its not really an argument though, clearly u take him over gerald green. Oh! excuse me, demar derozan. I'm sorry, I tried to find the good in this guy, but I'm sorry, its just extremely hard. If we watched a USC game and didn't know who anyone was and what hype they came in with, we wouldn't think anything of this guy...raw in every aspect of the game, even just getting in a mere defensive stance and understanding rotations (lets not even bring up ball handling).
