He is a really good player. He can compete with the best pg's in the league on any given night. Not an elite player, but he is really good. Has a knack for hitting buzzer beaters, but not necessarily buzzer beaters to win games. More like shot clock, halftime type shots. He has become a good three point shooter. He can dribble to get a mid range shot....sometimes.

My biggest problem with Lowry was that he was kind of whiny on the court. Constantly at the refs, barking about calls. I felt like at times he killed team momentum because he'd be complaining so much.

I thought Dragic was a better player and I think Lin is a better player, but I think Lowry is really good in his own right. You guys got a good player. Don't know if he is a difference maker, but he will definitely play hard every game. That is a guarantee.

Anyways, just thought I'd share my perspective.

But I have to say Lowry>>>>Lin, just based on experience and Defense alone. A little premature to say Lin is better than anyone and he's a turnover machine. As far as not being a game changer, was Houston not a playoff team last season before he got hurt?
