If he would be so great Memphis and Houston woulda kept him. As I said - great individual fantasy numbers doesn't mean it will translate into team wins.

He is not even in top 50 in AST/TO ratio...Not great for starting PG. Again, I said already I like lots of things about him but he has very serious faults as starting PG.
Not sure I need to look for other point guards we can acquire.. how about he works on his weaknesses and shows to me in the future that he can be better then he is now?
I think you should do that.... and I also think you should pay special attention the 2nd half so you can record every GOOD play he made too.

Notice how many times he got to the line? When no one else did?

Guess that was Lowry playing Hero Ball again.

"Serious faults" as a starting PG.... riiiiight.

Let's take a look at what Lowry can do....

- can penetrate and get to the line
- can rebound the ball
- can pass
- can play D
- can shoot it from deep

Yep. Looks like D-League talent to me.
