    I'm a huge Lowry homer, but I'm kinda nervous... I really hope he can stay healthy

    If at the end of last season, someone told me the Raptors would have a lineup with Gay and Lowry, I would go nuts or call bullshit. Two of my favorite players before they were even Raptors

    Agreed. I am pumped. A full season of backing up Calderon and fuming would have been terrible. Let's see what he's got. If his start to the season was any indication than this should be a nice development.

    He was probably okay with the bench because he knew they were pumping up Calderon's trade value

    First order of business after hearing about the deal was plugging him into the starting line-up of one of my fantasy league. I'm expecting a relieved Lowry to start playing without looking in the rearview mirror right away; semi-injured or not.

    +1....I basically hoped Lowry would be sort of a cross between a poor man's CP3 and Chancey Billups... I think that's one heck of a talented PG and we've gotta find out if he can be the future of the position for real.

    I think he is going to be very consistent now that he doesn't have to wonder if he's going to finish the 4th quarter, or stay on the bench.

    I can't help imagining Colangelo and Casey repeating a scene from Moneyball right now:

    BC: "You can't start Calderon at first tonight. You have to start Lowry."
    DC: "Yeah, I don't want to go fifteen rounds. The starting lineup is mine."
    BC: "The starting lineup is definitely yours. I'm just saying you can't start Calderon."
    DC: "Well I am starting him."
    BC: "I don't think so. He's plays for Detroit now."
    DC: "You traded Calderon?"
    BC: "Yeah, and Davis too."
    DC: "You are outside your mind."
    BC: "Yeah, cuckoo."

    I bet KL wasn't shooting in recent games because he was told so, not to be flashy so others team wouldnt request him in trade package.

    Default Should be Bargnani and not Davis

    I just hoped that Calderon would be on the block with Bargnani instead of Davis.

    Didn't know Lowry and Gay were best friends. Definitely good news.

    The problem is this: if you gave him a fatherly advice about being responsible adult that has to be extra careful when he drives, you will get the same player you got in the last month.

    The best thing you can do is unleash Lowry, let him take 10 shots or more per game, let him drive to the basket uncontrollably, let him be selfish and live with his forced errors and turnovers because subdue Lowry doesn't work. The Raptors will have to live with Good Lowry/Bad Lowry from here on end.

    What is the big deal of friendship?! Friendships do not make players loyal to their teams this is hog wash, in the end it comes to 3 things (not in chronological order):

    1) Location
    2) A winner
    3) Salary

    Those 3 things will keep a player with his team long terms not friendship.
