    Based on his play off performance ( Turn Overs and disappearing from the game) , his ceiling is Gortat right now But who knows, maybe he will come in next season and will dominate against big guys in the league ...
    someone's mistaking ceiling with likely outcome.

    a ceiling can only get lower with age.

    if you think it's possible for JV to raise his ceiling (no matter how unlikely it is) then that raised ceiling is also his current one.

    Fear the contract year.

    Washington could be in quite the pickle with big contracts given to Ariza and Gortat only to watch them slide back to career norms... like Webster last season.

    Then Durant won't go there as they have too much money tied into them to have filled the rest of their roster with a good supporting cast so he'll come here! Woooooo!

    It's funny how it seems most people here think that Lowry will continue his stellar play next season even though it was a contract year for him. I wonder if other message boards want to stay clear of him because of that reason like we do with players like Gortat. (Genuinely curious)

    I fear Lowry too.

    I fear any player that after numerous years in the league finally puts it all together after years of people saying, "this will be his year."

    Ariza is one guy who has already done it. Salmons has been notorious for showing up in contract years too, only to disappear a season later.

    I think Lowry just grew up.

    Also, he played just as well at the beginning of last year before he was injured as he did this past year.

    I'm not worried that his level of play will dip.
