Lowry has yet to become a leader in Toronto.
Though the point guard can be a good defender and a versatile player, he failed to demonstrate his ability to lead his team at the point this season. Lowry’s numbers were promising for the month of November, but his play declined after he missed time in December because of a triceps injury.
For the 2012-13 season, Lowry averaged 11.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.4 assists in 29.7 minutes of game play. When Jose Calderon was traded at the end of January, Lowry was forced to take over the lead guard position for himself, and he didn’t quite deliver for the Raptors.
Lowry needs to lead the team next season by facilitating plays and running offense. Hopefully, he has yet to reach his potential at the point guard position.
