Lowry and Lin are both warriors who sacrifice their bodies for a win. But man I miss Lowry's bulldog defense. Lin should be a good starter, but I really loved Lowry's entire game, once he learned how to make a 3.
Lowry didnt get along with McHale and isn't as calm as Jeremy Lin is on the floor. However, both are clutch players who play with heart and aren't afraid to drive in and make contact with their body.
I think Jeremy Lin is better in the long-term plan of this team, especially if Rockets obtain another all-star scorer. Even though he mostly drove and scored a lot during Linsanity you can tell Lin also has a lot of untapped 'pure PG' game in him. Lin would be the better fit and facilitator for this team with Harden plus another all-star scorer on this team.
