Are we gonna act like if Jordan Hill went into last year's draft out of college, he wouldn't be right there with Williams?






It's easy to just say things and ignore the already immediate results of the draft.



A bunch of terrific players who came out of the draft and "they may as well have been 2nd rounders" is an ignorant statement.

The way he goes right up the gut of the defense and makes flashy passes out of traffic to open shooters is beautiful.




I disagree. Lowry has better vision and is a much better passer. What Dragic does better is run pure pick n' roll. He's a better slasher, naturally getting all the way to the rim. And I do think he's a better pure game manager.




But I can't see him being a better playmaker than Lowry, in any way. The thing that could be an issue for Lowry is his consistency in putting it all together. But like I said, his stat lines change every night, but he always produces. I think his assist totals don't do justice to how much better he makes players. He makes Scola a much better player. Obviously, he's the better rebounder and defender. I also think that, after the big 7, he's the best PG in the NBA.



If I was projecting, I'd say that Dragic might very well establish himself as a top 10 PG next season. But I'd have Lowry near the tier of the other 7.

Dragic was on a hot steak. Lowry should be a better player next year.

Dragic can hit some passes that Lowry clearly can't but he is more ball dominant. Lowry has more impact on the game. I rather keep Lowry as a Rockets fan.

i wouldn't want to play for Mchale either. he's the same idiot that signed Dalembert when teams wanted him, then goes and gets Camby too. i'd have been pissed if i were Dalembert since he could've gone back to Sacramento with guaranteed PT. Mchale has always tried to make everything some competition and abruptly sits players in favor of others on a dime. He'd just be a horrible coach to play for if you're not a already known star guaranteed your minutes. can't blame Lowry at all, especially when you think you've proven yourself enough, but are going to have to fight for PT or emphasis again.

its sort of like the Bears signing Michael Bush while still having Forte, altho football's a little different since its nice to really have depth there and both are used more to spell each other. still, i don't blame Forte for being pissed.
