Lowe makes a great point about the pick and roll (one I have made of course) later in his piece, while considering Tristan Thompson.

That has left Kyrie Irving or Jarrett Jack to run a stagnant high pick-and-roll, which was effective in the 2007 NBA with LeBron James, but isn't effective in a 2013 NBA that has learned Tom Thibodeau's defensive principles.
