Okay this is another average thread by a guy who likes a player and wants other people to like a player and hopes his single post will sway them.
D-marc is a 6'1" Combo guard, playing for the Austin Toros, with a decent handle and an ugly as sin jumpshot. But he can score. He's California's All-time High School Scorer. Undersized for the NBA say you?
Well the one thing he does have going for him is sick atheleticism and a freakish frame. He is 6'1" and has a 6'10" wingspan. He also has a strong upperbody and the de facto 40 inch vertical. In keeping with this site, that's ridiculous upside.
I'm not going to pretend that I don't have a mancrush on him, he went to Duke, and I am a Duke fan. If he and I were to have a conversation it would go like this:
Me: Alright. If this is where it has to happen, then this is where it has to happen. And I'm not letting you get rid of me. How about that?
Demarcus: (nodding slowly, eyes wide)
Me: This used to be my specialty. I was good in a living room. Send me in there, I'll do it alone. And now I just... I don't know...I WANT TO GET YOU AN NBA CONTRACT!
Demarcus: Aw shut up. Just Shut up. You had me an NBA contract, you had me an NBA contract..... (his eyes water...)
Okay, that's a little much. But seriously, let me know what you guys think of his chances to get back to the league. I think he has a realistic shot if he hones his J and his defense. But maybe I'm just being a Duke homer.
