It's only 3 games, and he'll currently fall but Kyle Lowry is currently #4 in the NBA in PER, ahead of LeBron and James Harden.

To show you just how early the season is, though, the current #1-3 of PER are JJ Barea, Glen Davis and Mike Dunleavy!
----

I still think that Lowry will settle in to something like 19ppg 7 assists 5+ boards and a pretty decent # of steals, which is nice!

Funnily enough, Glen Davis is somehow averaging 25.5 ppg 9 rpg right now (in only 2 games). Meanwhile Mike Dunleavy is getting 18ppg, 9 rpg, 4 ast, 2.0 steals on 70% shooting! Like that will last!

If he doesn't negotiate an extension (and he won't - the salary is too limited), we can re-sign him with Bird Rights to a maximum salary. Assuming 14-15 has the same max that 12-13 has (pretty unpredictable due to fluctuating BRI), we can sign him to 5 years, 94.3 million (!).

Kyle Lowry is off to great start with the Toronto Raptors. The way this guy plays makes BC look very bad. How in the hell do you put Nash ahead of Lowry. We are just peons on this board while BC and his scouting staff missed the boat on going after Lowry from day 1. Now for Lowrys next contract ........just let the season play out. Lets see what happens before we blow our load on one player.

I have a feeling that we will not be able to afford a good SF, draft might be the only way

you're referring to a trade, right? also, I don't know why people get excited for BC to have money in FA - it never ends well. drafting a good sf might be possible or a draft day trade to acquire one.

Lowry is a good pg. but he does t mak players around him better. I have no other complaints though. Maybe when the chemistry is better he can get teammates some easy shots

When that happens this team will go to another level. Also when Andrea starts feeling better because of the flu and his conditioning is better that will make a big difference.

Also notice Andrea isn't moving well I think that calf shot he took in preseason is hindering him

DeRozan?

Anywho, seriously, what more can we ask of the man. He passes the rock just fine, he's freakishly efficient scoring wise given his usage, he's quite good defensively, he's quite the rebounder, and he's actually a PG who can break down opposing team's d. He has a pretty solid win shares/48 mins in his career and although it's a small sample size (3 games) he's doing a .424 which is phenomenal.

lowry is one of the smartest PG ive seen in years, remember that diving pass to fields that ended up being a behind the back pass from fields to derozan? too sick. It also comes with time, Lowry is still understanding where our guys like to get the ball

All I know is I'm loving Lowry on our team, and I know it's early but right now I'm under the mindset that we gotta try and hold onto this guy.

don't remember who said you're crazy but when we got him i was pretty confident he was better than possibly all our other players combined
the fact that he was a legit upper tier PG, probably just a level below the top names makes him already better than everyone else who are at best a couple levels above average
