Thunder Telfair or JL 3 who's the better backup?

I'm not the biggest JL 3 fan but I like him better than Telfair. To be honest I wish we could have pick up Eric Maynor instead of Telfair. He doesn't have a consistent J and he I don't think he's the greatest floor general either. That being said what do you guys think of Lowry as your starting point?? I don't love it I don't hate it and to me that's a problem.

I love lowry as our starting pg. it's been a hell of a long time since we've had a competitor like him with his skill set at the 1 spot.

I like telfair as a backup. less me and more team in him than JL3. JL3 is barbosa lite but at the pg spot, definitely not something you want.

I don't think any of them are the selfless floor generals that the team needs. Proves to be hard to find a point guard that know his players, looks to set them up and look for his own when the team needs him. Good help is hard to find!

Honestly, Lowry is not something i want to have as a starter, he does not show what i have expected, but at the same time, it maybe and probably is Casey's fault, as he's the one having stupid offensive plans. So far i am not too impressed with Lowry, but as u said i don't hate him either.

I love Lowry, the player i watched the last couple years. The guy i'm seeing right now isn't that player. He's been slowed down due to injuries this season and also due to coaching imo. If Casey is here next season i truely hope he gets offensive help from somewhere (added offensive assistant) because this offense absolutely does not allow Lowry to play his game. I'll give him this summer plus next season to see how he works under this system when healthy.

I think a lowry and JV pick and roll can be incredible, but our coach would rather AA iso all game longgggg

I'd rather have Telfair as the main backup PG, JL3 isn't really a backup PG but a backup backcourt scorer, he's like a very cheap version of barbosa
before Telfair we basically had 1 PG in lowry and another guy that shoots but so happens is really short and is forced into a position because of his lack of height
the biggest issue might actually be that he is so short and small that any offensive advantage we might gain from his shooting is easily negated from his inability to defend his man

In my opinion Telfair is a bigger scrub than Lucas III.

I'm fine with both of them as back ups.

But if you can swing a trade for say Luke Ridnour to back up Lowry you do it. But untill then WTFUGD?

Telfair>>>>John Lucas


this should not be the question as Telfair is much more better player in terms of PG skillset.
