word is the houston rockets will hold competion for the starting point guard spot. and these two young man will duke it out. who do you think should start.
Aaron Brookes...nuff said
Aaron Brooks. They need offense more than D.
i think brooks is a better leader then lowry.
Lowry is a pitbull lol, but Brooks should start. I think they're a perfect change of pace.
Lowry is a backup Brook proved himself hes a great scorer which they lack.
They need the scoring more than anything, especially with no Yao and who knows how long with no McGrady. I like both guards better as backups though, but I think Brooks is going to be the fearless leader they need because they still have the goal to make the playoffs.
they have stated that brooks is there starting pg.. where did you read that they said its gonna be a competition? link
why is this an issue? BROOKS PROVE HIMSELF doing the playoffs that he is the ROCKETS POINT GUARD...LOWRY is a backup... a pitbull on defense..HE was giving the starting job at MEMPHIS BUT HE didn't show he has a complete game...both offensive & defensively..plus he doesn't have an outside shot.....Thats why they traded him to HOUSTON..
Brooks was probably the rockets best player in that second round against the Lakers. I think he could be the team's mvp next year if TMac doesn't get back to full health.
People forget how good Lowry is. Lowry is probably a better balanced point guard than Aaron
Brooks but Brooks is quicker and is more of a nightmare match up though.
Lowry is a better natural PG and defender, but he cant shoot at all. Brooks can score very well and he's a decent enough passer. They need scoring much more, Lowry is a backup PG who changes the pace with full-court pressure on D. It works out perfect.
