    Happy thing is McHale is some of the reason Dwight chose to sign with us.

    Count me as another one who would rather have Lowry on this team than McHale.

    Actually we think he's a talented player that lit up the Lakers and Spurs for 38 points when he was allowed to play his game. And is now used as a placeholder for a coach who has never proved anything, but seems to get more leeway than said player.

    Those were both high TO games. D'Antoni encouraged him to play through his sloppiness, and he was a much sloppier player then than now. McHale can't expect Beverley type of TOs from Lin when Lin is a very on-the-edge type of PG that looks like he can make mistakes at any time but also may make a breathtaking play at any time as well. On defense Lin can be stupid, but he also can be very good. If they can get him to stop helping so much, he'd be so much better on D.

    The coach's record is good, but the team doesn't look well organized with its players properly utilized.

    ... and yet the genius GM let him go and signed Lin with a "poison pill".

    Can you read Morey's mind?

    What is Lowry's usage rate? A case could be made, his usage rate now, vs when Rudy Gay on the team. Rudy could be the 'Harden' of Toronto with the number of shots he put up, but question is, did Rudy handle the ball a lot while Lowry played with him and what were Lowry's stats?

    Man.... that's a really big knock on our talent evaluation when Lowry and Dragic are doing so well right now..

    This is hilarious. Why? Raptors are barely a .500 team playing in the terrible eastern conference. Yeah this definitively means Lowry is a superstar!

    Nice try troll.

    We were in a completely different situation with those two. Morey found them in the rough and they did well here. Keeping Goran for what he signed for would have been a mistake.

    Parker is 42 and Lowry is 7. That tells you all you need to know about that stat.

    Goran makes about the same as Lin. Who is a better player?

    This tells you Parker plays with teammates who are better at basketball than Lowry's.

    Apples and oranges. Goran had a player option Morey didn't want to hand out. On this team it would actually hinder us from pursuing a 3rd star in 2015. Lin's signing doesn't impact 2015 and at the time the team was looking for high upside since we had NO Harden, NO Howard and and bunch or draft picks.

    Hindsight is a *****. When we signed Lin we were going to be one of the worst teams in the NBA.

    NO WAY MAN. I mean Parker just plays with Duncan, Ginobili, Belineli and the entire Spurs Bench. Those guys are total scrubs! :rolleyes:

    Goran would be the third star.
