but I'm sure the other star PGs are doing just as well, maybe not translating into stats
you can also argue that there's only 1 stat that counts and thats W-L which we are 1-2, meaning we're not doing very well
Not this well.....Lowry joins 2 legends of the game for their incredible all around start to a season....namely MJ and KG. KL is one of 15 players, he's doing his part, now the rest of the team needs to trust him and come together. The w/l is 1-2 but KL is doing everything a PG should do on both ends of the floor - better than any other pg. What else can you ask of him?
• Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry has joined Michael Jordan (1989) and Kevin Garnett (2007) as the only players to start a season with three consecutive games of at least 20 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals. Both coaches are equally impressed with Lowry, “He’s playing like an All-Star,” Thunder head coach Scott Brooks said before the game, “he’s strong, he’s aggessive, he plays like pit bull.” Moments later just down the hall Raptors head coach Dwane Casey echoed Brooks, “Kyle’s playing like an All-Star right now.” Casey then told reporters how he wanted Lowry and the rest of the Raptors to defend OKC point guard Russell Westbrook, “we’re gonna pack the paint and if Russ backs out and hits 3s we’ll shake his hand and go on to Dallas.” The Raptors play the Mavericks tomorrow night. Westbrook is just 2-for-11 (18.2 percent) on 3-pointers. LINK
