Smith is a turd we all know this and we knew this before we acquired him. I'm not defending J.R. exclusively. What I'm doing is fact checking your outright lies with stats to back up what you said that was wrong. You're trying to stamp down Smith in a large way to trump up Derozan. Talent for talent they are about equal, although I'd take Derozan for many other reasons not named but namely his age and slight upside.
Nevertheless I fact checked your stupid STAR comment, I fact checked your stupid comment on Smith and Derozan, I fact checked your stupid comment about Melo being best player on all his 50 win teams. Unfortunately the Derozan comment may have proved to be the dumbest because the numbers and STAR gaff by you clearly exposed.
Derozan is not a STAR until he makes an All-Star appearance(s). Numberwise, this year he's better than J.R. but he's not far and away a better talent overall or throughout their career. My advice to you is stop looking at PPG so heavily to build your arguments and scramble to find meaningless stats to try and back it.
Now if all you said was you feel Derozan has the current edge and he's on an upward trend in comparison to Smith, that's cool and all. Sorry you said Smith never had a season close to Derozan and you're wrong. You put their whole careers in play.
If you weren't such a douchebag of a poster and admitted when you're wrong, you wouldn't receive so much rebuffing posts from those other than myself.
Anyway this thread put everyone on notice to watch closely what you say....
