In 12 games since Brooks has been traded Kyle is averaging over 19pts 7ast and 4.5 rbs while shooting %48 from the field and %45 behind the arc.

Explain to me why people aren't allowed to discuss players in the NBA forum...

As for Lowry: The kid is a beast. Plays defense too. Glad Morey got rid of Brooks; 4 years and $24 million is a steal.

The only reason why I made the comment I made was because the OP just posted stats from one game and thats it. I mean if he/she were to ask "Do you think Kyle Lowry is a good player?" then I probably would've not said what I said. I also don't support the Lebron or Kobe threads either.

I really like Lowry. He's more of a scorer than a distributor at the PG spot, but he gets it w/in the flow of the offense. He plays great team offense, passing and shooting.

best part is hes not afraid to have the ball in his hands at the end of quarters/down in the shot clock. now that teams have to respect his range from 3 hes gonna be a damn good PG

You picked up Marcus Thornton too didn't you? He dropped 23 points, 9 assists, 8 boards tonight and was 4-5 from three. Would have had a good chance of a triple dub if he had played more than 2 minutes of the 4th quarter.

A little if you don't count defense. A lot more if you do. Also way cheaper.

I don't watch either consistantly, so I can only go by stats.

Conley has 2.6 defensive win shares to Lowry's 1.4. (Lowry has 54% the DWS Conley has in 89% of the minutes). And Conley's defensive rating is 3 points better (107 for Conley, 110 for Lowry). Conley also averages 1.8 steals per game, while Lowry is slightly lower at 1.4. (If you go by per 36, it's still 1.8 for Conley and 1.5 for Lowry).

Again, I don't watch either on a consistance basis, but Conely, at least statistically, is playing better D this year.

He's a beast simply because he came out of Villanova.

Even though they were such a letdown this year, I can't believe they played as bad as they did down the stretch and against George Mason.

yea coulda had 2 triple doubles. i wonder if him and tyreke can co-exist next year. i think they should put Reke at full time PG and make him develop more PG skills. him and thornton backcourt could be disgusting.

I was using this year's #s. Conley is at 107.

I had always been under the assumption that Lowry was a better defensive player and Conley a better offensive player. But this year, statistically at least, the opposite is true. You seem to know them better than me, so I was just wondering if you could explain why that may be.

And salary is a totally different issue. I don't include that when I'm ranking players. However, when you expand it from just rankings to building a team, then it becomes a factor.

We'll find out a bit this year. Reke is almost on his way back. I think him and Thornton can work together. Thornton has shown he's more of a playmaker than previously thought. He shows more and more the more comfortable he gets with the team. Him spreading the floor will definitely help since he can hit down open 3's.

Westphal said he wants to try a 3 guard lineup though with Beno-Thornton-Reke. Reke would be guarding opposing SF's, which he can do. He has the body for it at 6'5 220 with a 7 foot wingspan. Plus he's strong.

You want to know the main issue? He plays next to Kevin Martin, a notorious awful defender. DRtg takes into account total points allowed by the team while that player is on the court. DRtg imo isn't as good a stat as ORtg. Defense is much more of a team dynamic, harder to really put a value on.

Again, I don't watch either on a consistance basis, but Conely, at least statistically, is playing better D this year.

those numbers are slightly skewed because of the rockets overall poor defense this year (although that has significantly improved recently). the rockets have no defensive threat in the middle. lowry is a very good defender one on one and as a team defender. part of what he does is force the ball handler to take it in a certain direction. he expects help defense (like all good defenders would), but half the time the bigs are late on rotations or they just arent good enough defensively to make the player alter their shots

astrosmaniac
03-21-2011, 09:11 PM
and lowry's stats are comparable to conley's cause hes been fighting/sharing time with brooks for the first 2/3 of the season. since the ASB he's averaging 17.5 PPG, 7 APG, 4.5 RPG on 47% from the field and 43% from deep. all with an A:TO of nearly 3:1
