Nice video Coyote. Did Doug really make all those shots or do you think the video is edited?

I think I just heard 1620 interview Doug... This really did happen, I didn't hear if any best him. I'm sure some of the shots are staged, I mean, it's a tv ad! Like reality tv is never staged. :roll:

Not too many surprises yet. Smart just went to the Celtics.
Lakers, Sacramento and Charlotte up now! Doug's name should be heard soon.

They will probably cut Boozer to do that.

Scanning the Bulls message boards, general feeling is they hate the pick.

I am ecstatic about the pick. Having been a Bull's fan my whole life and now one of my favorite players is going there. AWESOME!

It looks like Pau Gasoline will join Doug in Chicago. I like this move much better than paying Melo his obscene price.

I think that bodes well for McDermott's playing time. With Melo, he wouldn't have got to shoot as much. But now they will have Noah and Gasol down low with Rose and McBuckets in the backcourt and probably Taj Gibson starting.

NBC Sports wrote:Doug McDermott can flat out ball — Sunday night he dropped 31 points on 7-of-12 shooting overall and 5-of-9 from three, plus he got to the line a dozen times.

If you’re looking for the early crowd favorite in Las Vegas, you found him. Every time he went up the crowd at the Cox Pavilion started to come to life in anticipation, and when the shot fell it got loud.

He put on a shooting clinic with coach Tom Thibodeau sitting courtside (no doubt day dreaming about all the shooting he will have next season with Pau Gasol, Nikola Mirotic and now McDermott). This was a big improvement for McDermott over his first Summer League game.

“That first one I was a little uptight, you know, just so excited for my first game. Today it slowed down,” McDermott. “It felt more like basketball.”

I’m no scout but here are my observations on McDermott: He works very hard off the ball and has a great concept of spacing and finding gaps in the defense. He has shooting range from Las Vegas out to about Primm. If you think all he can do is spot up and shoot you haven’t watched him, he can put the ball on the floor and knows how to draw contact. He’s not big, he looks more like a swingman size than a stretch four (DraftExpress said pre-draft he could play either forward, not sold on that now that I’ve seen him). With him and Nikola Mirotic and Pau Gasol that’s a lot of added shooting from big men, something that will open things up if Derrick Rose is healthy.

I think he is really impressing a lot of people. Granted, many of those players probably won't make an NBA roster, but what he is doing is awesome. So glad to see it.
