    Lowry, Lin and Dragic

    Houston had their pick of these three guys. Did they make the right choice in Lin? How would you rank them now?

    Houston made a **** choice. Jeremy Lin is nothing but hype. Dragic would be my first choice with Lowry as my second.

    Dragic and Bledsoe are an elite back court imagine how much better a duo Dragic and Harden would be.

    Noone wanted to pay lin that 8 mil a year so i dont understand why the Rockets high balled. Morey is overrated, but hey he acquired harden and Dwight right?

    Looking back now, Houston should have Made sure Dragic never left Houston, as he is the best player out of the three. PHX are only paying him 7.5mill per year, awesome deal for the Suns.

    Dragic would be the best fit with Harden and Dwight but IMO Lowry has proven to be a better player than Dragic, I just dont know if Lowry can play at this level with another all star on his team let alone two.

    Very similar stats but when watching both teams I see Lowry as the better leader on both offence and defence, there's a reason so many people around the league are talking about him

    So im guessing majority of people will rank them
    1. Dragic
    2. Lowry
    3. Lin

    Do you reckon Lin in on their level or behind.

    This is a moot if not somewhat useless arguement. The Rockets made those moves to give them the ability to trade for and extend Harden and to eventually pair him with Howard. Its not like they opted to sign Lin over those guys. By the time they ended up signing Lin they had not point guards on the team and he was the best available option. Also that Toronto pick for Harden turned in Jeremy Lamb which partially turned into Harden. Would you trade Lowry for Harden? The cap space the freed up with Dragic turned into Howard. Regardless what you think of Howard would you not trade Dragic for Howard?

    I think between Lowry and Dragic, that Lowry was the better fit and the guy they did want to keep but he and Mchale didn't get along. That would certainly have helped solve their perimeter defense problem. Dragic would not have worked well along with Harden because he's more of a scorer and needs the ball in his hands to be effective which deirectly nullify's Harden's game.

    Its easy to say in hindsight the Rockets made a mistake but in reality these were calculated and painful moves that they had to make.

    This. Both have their pros and cons but overall neither has shown to be better than the other.
