    lowry is best when he hogs the ball, and shoots the 3 or drives into the paint, and makes the surprising pass, or passing it when the defensive attention is focused on him. I don't understand why everyone here is bitching that he isn't calderon. I really liked what I saw from lowry in the second half, and hope he continues to play this way. Otherwise we are going to get jack shit for him in a trade.

    Coach has to go, but I think MU rolls with Casey this season as I don't think he really cares about how this season pans out, it will just determine his direction. It's becoming clear that DD and Gay have to go, I don't mind Lowry at this point and think he wouldn't be terrible to extend as I doubt he gets much, if any, more than he is currently getting, plus I think he would work better in a system that doesn't have the ball stop with the wings. Plus, a $6-8mil PG isn't bad off the bench if a better option presents itself down the road.
    Lowry would be fine in the right system. He's a (much) less talented Westbrook/Iriving/Parker kind of PG, which other teams have shown can be plenty successful.

    Gay + DD are too much. I wouldn't mind keeping DD, but he'll need a strong coach who clearly defines DD's roles and the shots he's allowed to take. The unconditional green light those two have been given is absolutely insane. I can't emphasize that enough - it's crazy, man. LeBron James is already commenting on it on national sports broadcasts. Think about that. Why is the number of shots being taken by certain players on a crappy Raptors team coming up in conversation with the league's best player during one of his post-game scrums? This is just as embarrassing as having Bargs tagged as the franchise guy.

    This coming from Daffy Duck. What a prick.

    The assist numbers are terrible, but its obvious it isn't Lowry's fault. Start Fields and Ross instead of Gay and DD, run the ball through Lowry and JV, and I bet total assists would go up, TO's down, and the team would be much better to watch. I'm not sure we would win more games, but easier to cheer for IMO.

    You don't have to have university level English in order to have a proper conversation. They just devoted most of their time to athletics, as opposed to academics, in grade school.
    proper conversation doesn't always include logic and critical thinking. i think they just have to say whatever to defend their team mates / team. i mean lowry was most vocal about supporting bargnani when everyone started boo'ing him like crazy. i'm sure he knew having him there was detrimental overall.

    I cant really find an issue with with what Lowry said. It is true. Both his wings are ISO players. And if you try and read between the lines, it seems that they, as a team, are the ones figuring out the offense by themselves with minimal input from Casey. And thats the part that i feel is wrong.

    Do you mind posting the whole article? Coz surely he wouldve said something like "we're working to move the ball around", "find the open man" etc etc in connection with this initial statement.

    It starts with Casey. If your players are forcing ISOs, call a timeout, set up a play. If they continue to call ISOs, sit them down. I know this is not an excuse but a lot of the big name players in the league are having cold starts as well. Harden, George, Wall, Irving. FG% are down. Common guys, we're only a week into the season. Not all guys come out roaring like Lebron, CP3 or Durant.

    But even after having said this, I'm convinced now that tanking is the way to go.

    “This is a different team,” he said. “We are not going to have a high amount of assists because of the players we have. We have individual players — guys who create for themselves. Your assist totals are never going to be as high as they can be because the guys we have, while they catch and shoot sometimes, they are best at playmaking and putting the ball on the floor. And no one is going to complain about that because they are pretty damn good.”

    WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON???? AM I IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE???

    Raps are dead last in team assists.

    Utah lead by Tinsley and Lucas III (yeah, THAT John Lucas III) is ahead of us.

    my main gripe with this is... basically what i'm hearing is "demar and gay are great at creating their own shots... so I just get them the ball, and let them do their thing"

    and that kind of logic just shits all over the concept of TEAM BASKETBALL

    so demar and gay can create their own shots.... do you know what that means? WITHOUT the ball, with more freedom of movement, they should be able to create their own shots... and they should have a PG competent enough to be able to find them when they free themselves up for good shots..

    it's becoming more and more apparent to me that Lowry is not a PG in anything but size.

    there is no reason Demar or Rudy can't develop games in the vein Ray Allen or Rip Hamilton... and they should play with a PG who encourages that kind of play.. not somebody who encourages their development into the next Gilbert Arenas/Antoine Walker of the league
