It will be hard for Lowry to get many open looks unless, A) we can get a double-team in the post - DD, JV, Gay, or B) Gay/DD become better passers out of their drives for drive and kick opportunities or C) Lowry shoots from another 2 steps back - which he has done fairly often in the past
I'd hope by the end of the year both JV and DD will force doubles from some teams. DD was impressive during preseason at scoring from the block (though he was schooling a lot of rookies). JV hopefully shows more polish and finishing strength as the season goes on.
JV isn't likely to get a lot of touches in a post scoring position. I would be shocked if he had many kick-outs resulting in 3's. More likely he'll A) try to power through the D, B) turn the ball over, C) pass to a nearby cutter, D) try to pass cross block to Amir/Tyler

The Quotable Rudy Gay on last year's 4-19 start: “We definitely remember that start. I remember it and I wasn’t even here.”
I've been wondering this. I know Rudy Gay is nowhere near the level of NBA player/superstar that Vince Carter was back in 2004. But if MU was able to get a similar package to what Babcock got for Vinsanity, it would be thought of as a fucking triumph right?
Trade was VC for Eric Williams, Aaron Williams and Alonzo Mourning + two first-round draft picks.
You could cut that trade package in half and I think it would still be thought of, overall, as a favourable deal (the deadset anti-tankers may not agree). Sub in other cheap scrubs for the Williams bros and an expiring contract for Zo.
I know the cap situation is way different, that Vince put T. on the map and that teams value 1st rounders way more these days, but it's still pretty interesting. To me anyway.
Didn't those 2 picks turn into Charlie Villenueva and Joey Graham? God, what a shit show....

lol, anyone remember when Joey Graham dunked on Chris Mihm and the announcers called him Joey Crawford?
You know you suck when the refs are more recognizable than you.
anyone catch the Gay interview on NBA tv?
I caught the tail end of it... I think the front end has a lot more talking.
