Nobody here argued that Carter is not a better offensive threat then Lowry.
Lowry is easily the better 'overall' player. I never said he's the better offensive player. That is why is he leads the playoffs in deflections, loose ball recoveries and is among the leaders in taking charges. Until last nights game he led the playoffs in point net differential, highlighting how valuable he is in the league.
The value of someone is measured in dollars during free agency. 2001 VC would command max salary from every team in the league. Can't say the same for Lowry if he were a free agent this off season.
Demar is also going to make the max this off-season, does that make him better then Lowry?
Vince was a great player, nobody here saying otherwise. The value of someone is not measured by how much they make...that is the dumbest statement I've ever heard. Carmelo makes more then Lebron. A couple years back Joe Johnson made more then Lebron. Heck, Dwight Howard is still one of the highest paid players in the league.
And of course Lowry wouldn't get the max - he's 30 years old, lol. If he was 25-26 years there is no doubt he would.
