You're reaching as usual. Lowry has never been a turnover machine.

Lowry- 1.8 Turnovers per game for his career (27mpg)
Calderon- 1.7 Turnovers per game for his career (28mpg)

I understand your dislike for Lowry since he threatens Calderon's minutes to some degree. Which imo are that threatened since he's still going to get roughly 25mpg anyway. But everyone throughout the league agrees we've upgraded the PG position at both ends. We needed a PG that can defend, play up tempo, score and distribute. In other words, do it all and Lowry does that. Calderon is a good PG but on many NBA teams he's a backup and thats no different now on this team.
