Lowry had a nice game tonight against Phili - he took advantage of some of poor awareness on Phili's part and nabbed some steals in the backcourt. Made some big shots. Very solid game.

well if the raps finally get there head on straight and tank, well marcus smart, he just dropped 39 on Memphis, and he has Durant saying he can play in the nba right now so

lets continue on our road mediocrity or we do something about it with a top end, top 5 pick were we could have a possibility at exum, smart, randle, parker, and last but not least wiggins

I disagree with everything you just said but that's my opinion.
I have experienced a few ignorant posters here that are childish, rude and try to be as condescending as possible and feel that they deserve to be responded to in kind. Personally i'd prefer not to even read anything they post since they clearly don't have anything useful to say, so if there's some way to block their posts please let me know and I can get that done asap, thanks.
I mean... never did I even say that because I posted more I had a right to be condescending.
All you had to say was that you disagreed.

He's playing with a sprained ankle and a torn ligament in his finger. He's real tough, and still managing to put up respectable numbers (save his shooting %). He isn't as aggressive as he's used to be, which is my only problem. I suppose he just feels he doesn't need to be with all the black holes on the wing, or Casey just doesn't want him to shoot.

Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

He played all over the court last night. None of the passing the ball off and stepping back. Good to see.

To be honest, I don't think we need him hurling attempts up as often, since we have DD & RG in some kind of shoot-out. Lowry is awesome, I have no idea how this board can criticize him. He's putting in real effort that we don't likely see from players who come here.

This is probably the best team we've had in a while, let's have fun with this! Take advantage of a really bad Atlantic Division/Eastern Conference and develop a culture.

Our issue isn't with Lowry, it's with his back-ups.

I am still not satisfied with the team. We might be 1st but our record sucks and the east is ridiculously weak. I don’t get overly excited over 1-2 good games, as we all know it may follow with 2-3 blowouts.
I have no problem with Lowry,but our bench is really weak. Ross has to bring it every night, Fields can't score still, nice to see Novak, finally. Our back up PGs are bad though...
DD and Gay played well last night.

We can use Lowry as a trade chip and I was looking at 76ers as a trade target team.

Lowry + Amir <> Wroten + T.Young

Sixers will not only tank for draft lottery this year, but also need to empty their salary cap for FA and contract extension.

In this way, Lowry will finally get to play his game in his hometown and we get a young PG who is capable of being a starting PG for this team.

This could probably work in the long run

not a big fan of young, he thrives as an undersized PF and really struggles as a 3. And at PG he's a sieve on defense. I'll take amir over him any day. And wroten has a lot to prove still, a few decent games for a bad team are not much. And I bet nobody here watched him outside last night's game - who picks a philly game to watch for fun (unless you're a philly fan of course).

why would they hinder their tank? I don't think they're short sighted enough to do that.

Regarding that it will be interesting to see what Cleveland does. TT will want a payraise soon but they have Bennett there at PF who they just drafted.
