I had to even make a video to disspell AB's new found D. and it certainly helped to sway some AB fans.
Lowry isn't phased by the calibre of opposition, and it's really important.
If you're lumping CB and AB together I think your memory may be a little foggy....

i was in nyc over the weekend, and spent saturday and sunday nights at msg. i talked to plenty of new yorkers about the knicks and raps and bargnani, and tried to get them going a bit, but no one cared. it was a sad sight. they just shook their heads, said 'knicks suck', and moved on to something else.

I wonder what Knicks Chick thinks of her team now?

well, I agree that AB is another dimention, but I clearly remember CB standing and watching every other rebound. He's a cool funny guy, but he tried to appear cool and hard, which he never was.
Anyway there's a difference even between tough and trying your best.
Lowry is tough, Hansborough is tough, Amir is tough..

I'm not sure it's possible to have the success Bosh has had playing as an undersized Center for most of his career without being tough. At 19 years old he was probably the smallest center in the league, he was rail thin, and he played 34 minutes a game grabbing 7.5 boards. His early career was defined by toughness; the underdog fighting in the paint amidst his teammate primadonnas jogging on the wings.

This. ^^^

10+ rebs/gm in multiple seasons and let's not forget that he among the league leaders in getting to the line for a few years as well.

Bosh's game was always more finesse than raw power but he was anything but soft.
