Lowry and Foye
Last Tuesday Kyle Lowry had a triple double and had a game-winning tip in at the buzzer in the 2nd overtime of the Grizzlies preseason game verses Houston. He had 21 points, 12 assists, and 11 rebounds. He missed almost all of last season after breaking his wrist during his 10th game. I think he will surprise a lot of people this year. Lowry and rookie Mike Conley Jr. should be a good combo because they are both really fast.
Randy Foye, another former Villanova Wildcat, is poised for a breakout season with the Minnesota Timberwolves this season. He had a solid rookie season, averaging 10 points and making the NBA all rookie first team. He'll be playing on a completely different team this year because of the Kevin Garnett trade. Ricky Davis and Mike James were also traded, which frees up plenty of playing time for Foye. He came off the bench last season, but will likely be the starting point guard this year. Minnesota has a very young team and Foye and Al Jefferson will be the leaders. They also have lottery pick Corey Brewer from Florida's national championship team.
Just found out Foye injured his left knee and will be out several weeks.
