I started looking back through the old stat sheets today, and something interesting caught my eye. Kyle Lowry's stat line this year are eerily similar to that of our old friend Rafer Alston in his first season with the Rockets (05-06). Check it out:
Kyle Lowry 10-11 12.1 PPG 3.9 RPG 6.4 APG 1.43 SPG 0.31 BPG 2.1 TOPG
Rafer Alston 05-06 12.1 PPG 4.0 RPG 6.7 APG 1.60 SPG 0.24 BPG 2.5 TOPG
Here is the kicker.....Kyle Lowry shoots better FG%, FT%, 3P%, AND had less TOPG. And not to mention we never have to see floaters clanking all day. Welcome back Rafer! I like you better this way.
