Ty’s Top 50 NBA Players Countdown – #39

As the NBA off-season continues, all of the big news stories and free agency signings seem to be winding down. As someone who mostly writes about the NBA here at WTP, I need to find some way to get some content out. That brings us to what absolutely nobody asked for, but you’re getting it anyways! Welcome to Ty’s Top 50 NBA Players!

Every day for the next 50 days, I am going to be counting down a list of who I believe are the top 50 players in the NBA.

Coming in at #39 is Toronto Raptors point guard, Kyle Lowry. Lowry was drafted in 2006 by the Memphis Grizzlies with the 24th overall pick before signing with Toronto in 2012 after a small stunt in Houston. Over his career, Lowry is averaging 14.4 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 5.9 APG. Last year however, he averaged above his career high in all three categories by putting up 16.2 PPG, 5.6 RPG, and 6.9 APG.

This past season, Lowry made the all-star game for the fourth straight season and in the 2015-16 season, he made his only All-NBA team. He was also a member of the 2016 Team USA olympic team that won a gold medal. Lowry is one of the most underrated players in the entire league, but simply is not a top 25 player, especially heading into this year. He does everything pretty consistently whether it be scoring, rebounding, or facilitating. Yes he is an unbelievable basketball player, but there is a lot of good and better players in the league than him, so I simply could not put him higher than #39. Let’s see how he adapts to his new teammate, Kawhi Leonard, this season after losing DeMar Derozan.

50. Terry Rozier
