I'm not giving Kemba a pass, Lowry is the better player of the 2 because of his defence. I am saying that Kemba will probably not have stats better than Lowry going forward because of playing with 3 other creators. Lowry playing off the ball is irrelevant - though maybe I am missing your point completely.
Lowry might have better stats if he was slumming it on the Hornets and running 75 high pick and rolls a game.
That doesn’t make an ounce of sense. He would have far less open looks and prob would be slumming it much more on defense. Walker has been the more efficient shooter from mid/three the past decade despite having far less drawing attention away from him.
Kemba isn't an insanely efficient player, despite being a very good scorer. Lowry has a better career FG%, 3pt%, and TS%. You're talking about the past decade? Lowry's averaged 57.1 TS% during that time. Kemba's only surpassed that once in his whole career. You could say Lowry's benefitted from DD or Kawhi, although I don't think DD is that great, but Lowry's still much more efficient this year.
Lowry's probably couldn't put up the scoring volume that Kemba does, but he's a great scorer in his own right and is much better at all other facets of the game including efficiency.
