    I think we had a poll before were I think Lowry won overwhelmingly. For the upcoming season who will post the best numbers?

    1.) Goran - Will have free reign in the phoenix so I think he does the best

    I am not sure about the other two. Lowry is more proven and I think he will be second best, but Lin has proven everyone wrong, but his shot isn't very good, and he needs to do a better job of handling the ball. He is bigger than Lowry and he can get to the line a little more so it is a hard decision between those two.

    Goran is the best of the three, but Lowry's playing in Toronto and nobody knows where Lin's playing yet so it's hard to say.

    All things being equal:

    1. Dragic
    2. Lowry
    3. Lin

    Not Lin that's for sure

    He's clearly the worst of the three

    Though none of them are THAT great anyway

    I would say Lowry, but he's gotta defer the ball to Bargs, Jonas, Demar

    Lin has the best leadership/intangibles qualities of the 3 IMO

    How that factors in how the season will go I'll leave it up to you, if in terms on wins and close out close games - then I think it will help :)

    Lin, he'll be free to shoot, free to pass and free to operate unlike working with Amare and Melo. If the teams remain unchange, I mean we do not get Howard, or Bynum, Goran probaly will have better success to the team than Lowry because the East are so loaded.

    haha Dragic and Lowry are both better than Lin

    you put either Dragic or Lowry in that offensive system the Knicks had and watch them be all-stars( for proof ..see Raymond Felton with NYK, and after)

    Lin will be running McHale's PnR heavy offense, which was built to inflate PG's stats, Dragic will be running Phoenix's more up-tempo PG heavy offense, and Lowry may wind up splitting time with Calderon. Right know I'd have to say 1. Dragic 2. Lin ............ 3. Lowry

    1. Lowry

    2. Lin

    3. Dragic

    Lowry quietly has a pretty decent supporting cast in Toronto. Dragic will hit a bump and his confidence will plummet, he'll be hot and cold all season. Lin won't be Linsane but he'll prove he's a good starter, not All-Star level, but good.

    How easily people forget that just last season, Lowry was the starter over both Dragic and Lin. Then that unfortunate incident threw him off his game. He will be back. He really never should have left.

    This.

    Though I think Lin has the most potential. He's a few years younger.

    Depends what you mean by best season. Stats? Team success? Lin might average 16 PPG on 41% shooting, 6 assists and 5 turnovers, but Rockets won't make playoffs. All he does is pick and roll and if you switch on it or make him go left he is looking like a middle schooler.

    I'd say Lowry will have pretty good season. Same for Dragic they should bond well with Gortat. Don't know about Beasley, if he is capable playing within flow of the offense.

    LOL what? They suck. Dragic's cast in PHX would destroy them.

    Lowry, Derozan, Ross, Bargnani, Valencuinas(sp?)

    6th man Calderon

    Amir Johnson.


    Hornets matched EG.

    Toronto's going to love having Lowry. If he's healthy and happy, I can see the Raptors fighting for the eighth seed in the playoffs.

    I think Dragic will drop off from the level he reached last year. It won't matter because Phoenix is pretty much lottery bound this year anyway.

    Lin is the mystery man for me. If he stays in NY and the Knicks can stay healthy, he'll thrive. If he's in Houston without Howard, he'll struggle, as will the rest of the Rockets.

    Even with Howard and Lin, I don't see us being better than a fifth seed in the playoffs.

    Definitely Lowry

    He's the better player out of the three.
