Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Keith Rivas – So, yes, the Toronto Raptors majorly disappointed in this year’s NBA playoffs — but during the regular season things were a different story for Kyle Lowry & Co.
Last year Lowry averaged 18 points, seven assists, and five rebounds per contest. Toronto flew to pretty great lengths to kick the season off, but saw things crumble right before their eyes without even a single playoff victory.
As the higher seed, mind you. Once the Raptors get over the inexperience bump in the road, Lowry’s true light will shine and it will be more than dangerous. It’ll be deadly.
Ben Buchanan – Kyle Lowry was on a tear for parts of the 2014-2015 season. He was an All-Star starter and was picking up slack when teammate DeMar DeRozan went down with an injury. Lowry averaged over 18 points and 7 assists in 2015. He also is a very good 3 point shooter, at 38% from beyond the ark. He should have a very good year in the 2015-2016 season if he doesn’t taper off like he did towards the end of the 2014-2015 season.
Steve Turner – Kyle Lowry had such a great 2014-2015 season. The All-Star point guard took the leap and embedded himself as one of the best point guards in the game. He really helped that Raptors team while DeMar DeRozan was out last season and I know Lowry is only ready to improve. Lowry’s a great passer, but he can really dictate the court on the offensive end of the ball.
Sauping R. Arguello – Lowry makes the list based on his first half of the 2014-15 season. He finished the season less than impressive when the Raptors had to make a run for playoff positioning.
