    Lets not go overboard with Lowry here. He's a good player but he's not in the 'great' category.

    The reality is Lowry needs to find a way to deal with it. If people want to argue Lowry should start, or Lowry should see more minutes etc. thats fine, I get that. But if coming off the bench is having some effect on his ego or confidence or is in some way bothering him and effecting his performance, this team doesn't need to stroke his ego and make him feel better. He needs to find some way to suck it up and get over it.

    This team doesn't need to baby sit grown men anymore.
    You know I agree with the bit on some effect on his ego or confidence but let us not forget St. Jose was absolutely dreadful starting the year from the bench.

    I am still a little surprised by Wolstat's 'educated guess' comment yesterday about BOTH Lowry and Calderon possibly being traded. I am starting to think that is 100% the way to go.

    Something is not right with him. We can all speculate but really only he, the coaching staff, and teammates know. I feel like the Raptors have broken him. The swagger and confidence this team desperately lacked and he had in abundance is gone. F*ck.
    He's been neutered somehow. I don't get it. Here's my only 2 explanations:

    1. Has he been promised by management that he's on the bench until Feb. 21st where they move Calderon for something. He was told to just learn the system and hang in tight. Once the deadline passes, he gets everything back...

    2. OR, the team has responded by saying we like Jose and the system. That's he's not a team player and is being kept around to maintain his value for a trade. IMHO, it's one of these two.

    While I don't agree Jose was dreadful coming off the bench (although he wasn't as good as he has been since starting), even if he was what does that have to do with Lowry or Lowry's current situation? Knocking Jose down a peg doesn't make Lowry or the questions around him any better.

    The same medicine prescribed for Lowry should have been prescribed for Jose or in your words:

    All this fawning over Jose about professionalism and how great of a guy he is but he wasn't getting it done off the bench. Like it or not, most players who have traditionally been starters do suffer from coming off the bench. It clearly has happened to Lowry (but he was also asked to change his game) and it happened with Jose.

    I'm confused here. Are you trying to indicate that Jose was just handed the role of starter or got special treatment from this team?

    And I still don't even know what Jose has to do with any of this. You think Jose played poorly or terrible or whatever off the bench. Ok thats fine. But therefore what? Lowry should start? Therefore the organization should treat Lowry with a special privilege? Therefore Lowry has an excuse for allowing his new role to potentially effecting his mentality?
