He isn't going to be a savior, and if that team is waiting on him to be, they are done. Toronto is weak in three position right now. 5,4,3. We have future hope at five so its sorted. Derozan, can kinda hold it in place at 2...but its still a bit dicey. We have no three, and our 4's are all clearly not starters, and that includes Bargnani, who, has failed miserably. There's where it is right now.
did you watch the first three games? The guy averaged 24ppg/7apg/8rpg along with just over 3 steals. All three games we won(MIN) or came very close against teams that were better than us.
Saying we are the "same" without him is so far off. You think Calderon
can just step in and get those kind of numbers? Is the second unit as good with Lucas instead of Calderon? No and no.
No one expects Lowry to be a savior to this team, but he is a HUGE piece in making that next push from a lottery team to a playoff team.
