    LOL. He took Lowry's job for a time, same as Jose, and Houston wanted him back more than they wanted Lowry back. Phoenix seems to like him quite a bit, and he put up comparable numbers to Lowry's career best there last year. Not sure what that says about Lowry. And suggesting that it's impossible for a player to "fill out the stat sheet and not contribute to winning" is also pretty rich.

    For that one, Mike James, among many others, says "hi".

    The point is, it's not clear-cut that Lowry can be a legit starter on a playoff team.
    He took Lowry's job because he got hurt... and before he was shut down for the season while playing injured he was killing Dragics stats.

    All Mike James did is score? His not the best rebounder PG in the league. His not top 15 on steals. Lowry got injured and he came he was given back his starting role. I don't think Houston wanted either of them. Between all three teams (Houston, PHX and Tor) I believe we got the best PG.

    Haha! I agree that we got the best of Lin/Dragic/Lowry. That's a far statement from saying that Lowry is the guy on a meaningful playoff team.

    Since Chris Paul is just waiting for the starting PG spot to open up on the Toronto Raptors roster before he demands a trade, we should probably release Lowry right away.
    this comment combined with your avatar actually had me laughing for a good while there
