When Ed davis is outplaying Bargnani but Bargnani gets more minutes It doesn't make sense.
When Ross is playing well but guys who weren't were getting more minutes than him it didn't make sense.
But when calderon is outplaying Lowry, But you want Lowry to play because he's Lowry. That just doesn't make sense.
Puzzles me what some fans really want. Individual success or team success. Might I add that there will be and they are night when Lowry is in the game more than Calderon because at that time he's playing better. I always believe in going with the hot hand not the status of the player.(Unless that player is a superstar)
Then he eventually got more minutes because Green was traded. Ibaka blossomed into a very good player. But still, Scott Brooks wouldn't give him starters minutes.
However, his increased playing time made us a much better post defense team as well as catapulted us into the contender tier.
This year, with full-on starters minutes, Ibaka is at 15/8/3 blocks and 57% fg. He is a huge reason that missing harden hasn't effected it us that much.
Lesson: play the better player even if you are winning games with the other player. It is better in the long run for the team.
Again if we end up getting destroyed in the next couple of games, and you can see that Jose's play is a fault, then I have no problem is letting Lowry start. At this point, the team is winning with Jose, so I'll ride that.
I like Lowry but I want to explain a big difference between Curry and Lowry. Curry has been a good teammate while Lowry has had clashed with coaches and shown some immaturity. He needs to get more mature and not let his emotions run wild like he sometimes does.

"Juuuuuuuuuuuuust a bit outside. Wild Thing tried for the corner and missed."
I have not met a raptors fan on here who can coherently argue the Calderon point besides "Do you watch the games, they play better with him and lowry has an attitude problem."
Baseless arguments with no proof. I'm done. And yes, I have watched every Raptors game this year so their arguments are futile.
individual stats doesn't mean the team wins.
What is this thread about? Are you comparing Lowry to Curry? Or are you arguing that we keep him instead of Jose?
