It is the Golden Age of point guards in the NBA, a position with a depth of talent league-wide perhaps never before seen and Kyle Lowry has one pertinent thought on his position in the pecking order: Hang on, I'm coming.

Lowry, a supremely confident 26-year-old who could very well be handed the reins to the Raptors for the 2012-13 season, wants to join the likes of Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and the others who have taken the position to untold heights in recent years.

"I think I've broken into that second tier a little bit better than people expected me to and I'm trying to break into that first tier," Lowry said Tuesday after being formally introduced as a Raptor along with new teammate Landry Fields.

"It's going to be tough but I'm going to work myself to the point where I'm going to be in that first tier."
