    Lowry was significantly better in his 2nd year in the league than VanVleet is now, and dramatically better by his age 23 season. By basically every measure.

    Guys, we can appreciate VanVleet for what he is (best third string PG in the league, decent backup, hard worker, high energy, very limited young player) without making comparisons to all-NBA superstar guards that do no one any favours.

      • Good stuff from M Grange:

        "Lowry has always been an outstanding rebounder for his size, averaging 4.8 rebounds per 36 minutes for his career. According to Basketball-Reference.com, since 1970 no player listed at six-feet or less has averaged more on a per-minute basis.

        But in his early 30s Lowry is surpassing even his own prodigious marks. Should Lowry somehow grab 6.3 rebounds per game for the season – his current average – it would be the second most for a small guard in NBA history, surpassed only by Guy Rogers’ 6.5 rebounds a game in 1960-61.

        But it has to be noted: the Philadelphia 76ers guard played 37 minutes a game and NBA teams averaged 109.4 shots per game and made just 41.5 per cent of them, as compared with 85.5 shots and 45.5 per cent today. There were way more rebounds to get.

        Put another way, Lowry is on pace to grab 11.5 per cent of the available rebounds when he’s on the floor this season which would smash the previous rebound percentage record of 9.5 per cent set in 2012-13 by none other than Lowry himself, although rebounding percentages can only be tracked back to the 1966-67 season on Basketball-Reference."

          And so many people are saying Ibaka isn't having a positive impact on the team. Obviously not true!

            Record breaking rebounds for a short guy, as well as once again the far and away leader in charges taken amongst a group that is mostly bigs.

            Amazing. Guys, take notes: this is why people call Lowry the teams best player, still. And I'm not trying to make this a derozan thing but man Lowry has absolutely special heart and tenacity that is sometimes forgotten for awhile. Underappreciated amongst the Raptor fan base.

              To my mind this is Lowry's team. I don't know what kind of a guy he is in the huddles or in the locker room. I believe it is on him to call guys out if they are not making an effort. No one else has walked the walk like him.

                      Damn, that tip-in for the win was ridiculous. -- There's your all-time greatest rebounding point guard, right there.
                      If he ever won a playoff game for us with that move I'd jump through the fucking roof.

                          • Nylon Calculus with a bit on Kyle and our new offence.

                            For the past several seasons Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors have seemingly embodied each other. Forgotten above the border and under LeBron James’ shadow, both Lowry and the Raptors have been simultaneously respected yet not really taken seriously by mainstream media and fans after four consecutive solid regular seasons leading to underwhelming playoff results. When Lowry resigned with the Raptors for three years and $100 million last summer, some were skeptical of the deal because it meant Toronto was stuck on the dreaded “treadmill” — good but never a serious title contender.

                            Turns out, the Raptors have been better than ever in the early going thus far. Much has been made about the impact their young role players have had and how much they’ve “modernized” their offense by moving away from an iso-ball offense and towards a more pass-friendly, pace-and-space one:

                              They’ve gone from “Run of the Mill Eastern Conference Playoff Team” in 2014 and 2015 to “Non-Serious LeBron Challenger” in 2016 and 2017, and their performance early on in 2018 puts them closer to the level of the 2017 Spurs, 2016 Thunder and 2015 Clippers — legit Conference Finals-caliber teams who in a non-GSW era could be realistic title contenders.

                                Yeah, we're on pace for a 58 win season, and almost no shot at the championship.
