Pretty sure Lowry was a bit of an issue when he was comin off the bench for jose.. barley remember. Stats prolly not show it but his game kind of did... but yea, even chancey Billups pointed it out to him that he shouldn't fuck things up here... I assume it was because he was visibly displeased being on the bench.

I was listening to Fan590 last week and a guy went off on media saying he has issues with coaches and in the locker room. He basically said, aside from Kevin McHale (who apparently isn't the easiest guy to get along with) where else has he ever had issues with coaches? He said that the media here has had it in for him since he got here, and even the injury prone stuff is way blown out of proportion.


On a side note, he said he's been heavily into basketball for 15yrs and knows Wiggins and his family........says he's lazy and at this point he doesn't show the drive to be a great player long term. He is unbelievably talented but coasts far too much on his natural ability.

Well, you never really know until they've been in the NBA. Mans game.

Interesting piece from ESPN

Who has issues with coaches?

Who did the media have it in for?

Natural ability..if 19 rebounds is just natural ability, I'd love to see him try.

Maybe Kyle doesn't like singing Kumbaya.

He forgot to pray with Jackson when they briefly crossed paths in an airport in NYC.

Kevin McHale isn't the easiest guy to get along with? My impression so far has been the opposite, players generally love him.

I think they wanted him as a backup to Curry, so obviously off the bench.

where else were they going to play him but off the bench? They're not going to disrupt the backcourt of Klay and Steph. It's not laughable nor stupid, though the locker room issue might be overblown.

that and he was shitty to start the year. it's not like he was waiting for rudy gay and andrea Bargnani to be traded to start playing for a contract.

Well, he needs to be consistent. So far so good post the Gay trade. jeffb always says Bargs' 13 games were a small sample size but when it comes to KL same amount of games is sufficient to support the claim that he is a top 10 PG
