    I'm still DQ'ing you Doc because you were on Tank Nation and now your back peddling. #MessiahUjiri

    But Yes.
    Lowry is the head of the snake.

    DeMar is the heart that beats.

    Just a month ago we were criticizing Lowry here for shouting at JV during games. Now it seems like everybody loves Kyle.
    Yep. His on-court body language/communication has been better though in this stretch. Maybe better than it's ever been in his career (probably, really). It's about method as much as it is about message, because you use the wrong method and the message gets lost.

    And then you have this:

    Man, Do I hope your right, but I doubt it.
    but it doesnt make sense why's Ujiri trying to trade him why?? why would you do that he debuted the MVP ladder he's in the allstar conversation, He picked up him game and took it to a whole different level. His maturity and the way he handled everything why would you still put him up.
    not only that why wouldn't GS want him looool who wouldn't want him, locker room concerns my A....

    I think their interest in Lowry was pre-MVP Lowry

    Lowry is just an interesting cat. When he first arrived he was all about forcing the issue, gambling too much on defense and taking charge of the team, then he changes his game and becomes strictly a facilitator when the "wish Lowry was more like Jose" talk started, then completely defers to DeMar and Gay and then changes his game once again to become this perfect blend of facilitator, scorer, defender, and leader. Changing your game is such a difficult thing to do but he does it so easily. Truly a talented cat.

    Funny how they want Andre Miller as the backup. The same player that chewed Denver's coaching staff. Yet they want to soil Kyle. He's no angel, but his work on court cannot be denied.

    Interesting listen to Bob McCown's convo with Butch Carter regarding Lowry resigning and going after LeBron. It seems like it's not a slam dunk to resign Klow AND Casey (as some feel they're still not getting along). Interesting.
    I think that hour on prime time with butch and the conversation with Eliot Friedman that followed needs its own thread. So much stuff in it. Then again, once carter was gone and it was just bob and friej talking, you realized they don't pay too much attention to basketball.

    If I was GSW this would concern me also. KLow doesn't get along with just anybody.

    This made apsolutely no sense in the first place. Why would they be going after a starter to play minimal back up minutes. Not only is he not a back up, hes one of the best starting PGs in the L(right now). To make this worse, theyre going to publicly say "they didnt want him because of his attitude". Seems like theyre trying to tarnish his good name because theyre butt hurt they didnt get him. No body cares why you think you didnt want him, your opportunity is gone. Seems like they really were trying to get the guy and didnt capitalize, now they feel the need to explain themselves for botching a great opportunity.

    Plus, the wording on RealGM makes it sound like there was a potential deal on the table that GS declined, but the source they reference, Bleacher Report, doesn't make any such reference. It's possible that GS was just talking internally about the names said to be available.

    The Warriors’ search to bolster their bench—particularly with another backup point guard—led them to seriously consider Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry, a league source said. However, concerns about how Lowry— a soon-to-be free agent—would fit into their locker room prompted them to pass. Golden State’s unselfish camaraderie is both rare and a decided advantage. The asking price for Lowry apparently has risen with his and the Raptors’ success as well.

    Agreed, he may have upped his FG attempts (someone on previous page noted that) but I feel he's playing an even more unselfish game. He seems to be making all the right reads at the moment, he's really passing the ball very well and defending as well.
    IMO if the raptors had to pick one guy for the allstar game, it'd be him. Two would be nice though
    As for Jonas, he seems to have such a great attitude with regards to learning.
