I'd rather amir play the 5 than gray play at all

Never know, both are very good PG's. I think it comes down to whether or not Lowry can remain healthy. Goes both ways. I like Dragic too though.

why not? It's very possible. Lowry and Dragic are in the same tier.

I like Lowry's added ability to rebound at the PG position and coupling that with good defense
I'll take that over the probably slightly better offense dragic has

Yeah, and it doesn't rank Rose or Rubio due to them being out injured.

Tier 1:

CP3
Rose
Rondo
DWill
Westbrook

Tier 2:

Nash
Parker

Tier 3:

Curry
Irving
Lawson
Wall
Lowry
Rubio
Dragic

I think, in order, Irving, Curry, and Wall have the most potential to break in to the tier 2 or possibly tier 1(likely only Irving) if they lead their teams to the playoffs this year, or in Irvings case, just look like a superstar PG who's waiting for his team to catch up.

He had a great rookie year, but hes still got a lot to prove to be in their company. Hes obviously got the talent and skill level, but he needs to show hes a very good to an elite level passer and decision maker off the dribble. And his defence obviously needs to improve a lot. The rest of his game is great already though, in terms of his finishing ability, shooting from anywhere on the court, and being able to break down anybody off the dribble with ease. Hes already top 5 in terms of handles, thats for sure.

This is posted in the wrong section. This is a fantasy rankings article which has nothing to do with real life value or ability, it's purely statistical.

Lowry was an all-star when he was healthy last year. Easily a top 3 or 4 pg last year before he got hurt. Analysts were even saying the best.

Some analysts maybe. I'd question that he was easily a top 4 PG....

Heh. Well after last night's 1-10 shooting performance I guess I can't really expect better than that.

I do think that he's going to play well this year though and finally silence the haters.

Finally? He's started what 30 games? I think it's as much skeptical or caution as it is hate.
