    Default Gettin' some Respect

    Couldn't think where to post this, might be redundant so feel free to move it.

    Feel like the Raps are getting all KINDS more respect after just 3 games, seemingly just due to Lowry's presence. Tuesday marks yet another nationally televised game, as Kamla notes here, which is more than all of last season from what I can remember.

    haha no kidding. In fact, I think Brent Barry took Andrea Bargnani. Would explain why he's asking Lowry to get him better looks!

    Yeah, I was thinking about this too....the most I could say is that he seems to have a lot of the positives of Alvin and TJ, without so much the negatives (mostly physical).

    I agree he is amazing, but I still don't see him making others better (at least not yet, but it's still early). He looks for his own alitlle too much...just saying...

    I would much rather deal with Lowry's deficiencies than continue with Jose's.

    I like fact he does everything hard. If makes a mistake it's going to be done hard. He only knows one speed.

    I'm a little scared with the way he plays though. He's all out. Alot like Brett Lawrie of the Blue Jays.

    Agreed. Not complaining about his game at all. Just saying that I get nervous every time he hits the ground hard (which seems to be often).

    Not to mention hes been on fire. Most PG's go shot crazy when they are on fire the way Lowry has been. But he's keepin it cool, props to him

    I think he makes everyone better. I don't see him as ever being a huge assist guy, but he runs the team just fine and the offence is good with him in the game, so he's doing things right. In the end he's score-first when he drives the lane and so he doesn't end up with a lot of assists out of his aggression, but the team absolutely benefits. The question is what happens if/when he goes cold - does he adjust and create more opportunities or do things go all TJ Ford out there?

    So far he's averaging 7 assists a game. Tied for 11th in the league. If Bargnani hadn't been shooting 32%, and Fields 21% he'd be tied for 5th.

    Same. But I also get a shit-eating grin on my face every time he launches a deep 3. Even when he misses, I'm just thinking "you bitches just got LUCKY!" Can't remember feeling that way since VC was doing his thang back in the day.

    7 is good, but not huge, and it's right around what I would expect from him. Just saying I wouldn't expect him to be better than 10th in the league in assists but he may well be better than 10th best point guard - I just don't see him being an assist machine.

    Kyle Lowry. This guy really is something... The last time I felt we have a sure fire star was when Bosh was here, and he wasn't even that great in my opinion. Kyle seems to have an edge.
