    He is what he is, a person who would much rather play a Brandon Jennings type of game. He had to be tamed in to be a better distributor, which isnt he strong suit.

    @nbastats: Since Feb.1st, top 3-man lineup in terms of DefRtg is @Raptors' Lowry, Gay, Valanciunas (82.5). Indy's George, Hibbert, West 2nd (83.1)

    Last two games:

    10 points, 10 rebounds,10 Assist and 5 Steals vs Buck

    11 points, 11 rebounds, 9 Assist, 2 Steals and 1 Block vs Warriors

    I think his finding his niche with all the offence on this squat now.

    I agree, numbers back it up. If you've watched these last two games, he's been getting into the lane and attracting defenses better, and running this team with CONTROL. He's been really nice to watch. He's playing comfortably, and it's nice to see from our point guard. Fantasy people should be happy!

    Lowry is a better play-maker than Jennings is. There's a difference between an aggressive guard, and a score first guard. Lowry is an aggressive guard, Jennings is a score first guard. His numbers back it up, and so do Kyle's.

    By the way, another merged thread with "Is Lowry the answer at the point guard position" and another stuck thread. Just cleaning up the forums, and another thread where we can centre conversations into one!

    Hey guys, I saw this on RealGM. Wasn't sure where else to put it but I found it pretty interesting:

    http://basketball.realgm.com/wiretap...y-With-Raptors
    After a recent game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Raptors, Chauncey Billups had dinner with Kyle Lowry and let Lowry know that he has to take advantage of the faith that Toronto has given him.

    Billups also impressed upon Lowry the trust the Raptors have in him to trade Jose Calderon and give him another shot as the starting point guard.

    Billups advised Lowry not to damage his relationship with the Raptors again.
    Two things to take from it:
    - shows incredible respect for Jose Calderon and his body of work with the Toronto Raptors.
    - I have no idea why Billups did this
    your pal,
    ebrian

    Default Billups with good advice to Lowry: "Don't screw it up."

    Via Ric Bucher:

    Give Chauncey Billups an assist if Kyle Lowry makes good on his opportunity in Toronto after getting sideways early

    in the season with coach Dwane Casey and the franchise. Lowry struggled so much early on that there was talk of the team sticking with their incumbent, and older PG, Jose Calderon and moving Lowry. Ultimately, the Raptors moved Calderon and put their trust in Lowry that, despite being more of a scoring PG, he can push the tempo and move the ball enough to keep the array of athletes GM Bryan Colangelo has put around him. Billups' assist? Apparently when the Clippers played Toronto, Billups had dinner with Lowry and impressed upon him that the Raptors must have a lot of faith in him to move Calderon. Billups also suggested he take full advantage of that trust and not screw up the relationship a second time.

    I posted this in the Lowry sticky but no worries.. better to have its own thread.

    As I said over there, it seems like Billups is also simultaneously giving props to Calderon's work as a Raptor.

    Billups is a guy who also had a major attitude problem when he was younger and bounced around because of it, and probably sees a lot of himself in Lowry. he's probably throwing the team a bone for everything all those years ago.

    No point in merging until the topic dies out.

    So what do you think Billups is saying here -- go back to the 25/10/5 games or stick with the 10/10/10 games?

    I think he's saying do what the organization asks of you. Casey wants 10/10/10, so that's what he's been giving.

    Of course, Colangelo wants 25/10/5...so maybe he's a little confused at this point.

    I'm happy with either one as long as the Raps win.

    I also take Billups' comments as positive feedback about the Raptors organization, which is refreshing to hear.

    I would say a mix of both to end up averaging 17/10/8.

    Some games he needs to facilitate, some games he needs to step up and score.

    Exactly.... but not about the Raptors. I would say they are friends from off season training with Impact Basketball.

    shhhhhhhhhhhh, don't you know it's dangerous to suggest that well traveled professionals working in the NBA might have an accurate opinion of the organization that differs from most fans here?
