G: Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors: Lowry, 28, was Toronto’s best player and, contrary to his career inconsistency, one of the steadier two-way guards in the league. He’s just a pain to match up with in every regard. Lowry tests defenders with his blend of quickness, strength and talent for initiating contact. He averaged 17.9 points and 7.4 assists, an output matched by only four players: Paul, Curry, John Wall and Ty Lawson. Among those four, only Paul could claim to be as effective defensively as Lowry. – RM
Hopefully this is a sign of things to come. Guards ahead of him are: Chris Paul & Steph Curry (1st team) and Goran Dragic and James Harden (2nd team). I think you could make a case for Lowry against either of the 2nd team guys.
