Lowry is the only reason we haven't been blown out more this season. If half the team had his heart and tenacity, we'd be a lot better off. Plus, he hits shots.
I do think Lowry is a good player, he is however though showing a tendency to make very bad decisions especially during important times. Would just like to see him call his own number a little less often than he does.
I've also read a few post criticizing Lowry's D. To that I'd like to point out how every single PGs defense on this team has been criticized over the years and especially so under Colangelo's watch. I think we'll find when Il Mago changes the one magic act that will take place is how differently we'll view this team PGs defense.
Lowry is exactly as advertised. Great scorer, tough as nails, aggressive defender, strong rebounder, but mediocre decision-maker.
It's this last characteristic that's keeping Lowry from being a truly "elite" point guard. He needs to cut down on the early shots, and driving uncontrollably into 3 defenders.

The guy plays hard and does some glamorous things (getting to the line and rebounding) but he needs to keep that ball moving. How many deep 3's have we seen with the clock still in the 20's or high teens this year? His shot selection and timing of them is what drives some of us nuts. Take the bad with the good and there is no question more good but he's definitely has to move the ball a lot more IMO.
Character is the biggest issue. His public feud with McChale/resignation from the Rockets suggests that his head is at least partway up his rear (which has to be the reason that Morey gave him up for little). Hopefully, for us, that was just a lack of maturity.
So If you could choose between Dragic and Lowry from the rockets last season would everyone still pick Lowry I for 1 like him I hope the recent play of the overall team doesn't turn people and start grabbing the tradeLowry signs the guy is a stud.
