The Griz Guards: Lowry vs. Conley

by

comment
In the first installment of this pre-training-camp look at the Grizzlies roster, I compared the statistical record from Mike Conley’s rookie season to that off the best current point guards in the league.

Chip Crain, of Three Shades of Blue, asked how Conley’s backcourt competitor, Kyle Lowry, would stack up if his 07-08 season were submitted to the same test. The short answer: Very well. Lowry had a higher PER than Conley last season (14.32 to 12.65) and probably a slightly more effective all-around season.
