    Damnit I miss Kyle Lowry.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely glad that trade was made, but I wish the Rockets could get him back.

    Having a top 10 PG list without Tony Parker seems kinda ridiculous.

    He was pretty maligned in Toronto last season because of his injuries and also because his anti-Calderon style of play was seen as "selfish". If the Raptors don't see him as their long-term answer at PG worth signing an extension to, I'd love to get him back for Lin + Motie.

    The low ranking for Rondo and Rose is a bit surprising, but understandable considering they are trying to predict their utility after significant injuries. But, excluding Tony Parker is going to make them look stupid halfway through next season. 31 isn't too old yet, and he's still got Duncan and Pops and the rest of the Spurs to help him keep looking good.

    Yeah, he would be a great fit on this team, too. He's not as ball-dominant as Lin, and is a better defender/3P shooter/rebounder. If we could get Lowry back in exchange for Lin and a young guy/draft pick, I would do it in a heartbeat, even though I am still a fan of Lin's game.

    Also yeah LOL at Parker being excluded. The guy might be the 2nd best in the league behind CP3 and he doesn't even make their top 10? BSPN really likes to pretend the Spurs don't exist, don't they?

    One of the worst lists I've seen. Parker, Rose and Rondo this low? Rose is arguably #1-3 PG, even better than CP3 in terms of scoring and athleticism. CP is a better floor general but Rose when healthy has a elite penetration-unguardable like Lebron.

    Imo, Rose > Westbrook because of defense, BBIQ, mid range shooting %. Westbrook is better rebounder. They are near equal assisters, even though Westbrook has Durant as teammate. They are both beastly athletic and amazing penetrating.

    #1 Rose
    #2 CP3
    #3 Westbrook
    #4 Parker

    Sounds about right. Im a huge Lowry fan but I don't think he belongs on this list yet.

    I wonder how KL's personality meshes with the current group. On one hand, he did have some beef with McHale and can be a hot head. On the other hand, it may be helpful to have a teammate ready to call out Harden and Howard if they **** around or dog it on D.

    I think we get a lot of what KL brings to the table from Beverley, though, at a fraction of the price.
