Loyalty is a foreign word in today’s NBA. So, it’s fitting that the man who defines this word plays in a different country. Toronto Raptors PG Kyle Lowry.
The Raptors knew a change was necessary if they wanted to reach the next level after 5 straight playoff appearances, all ending in heartbreak. They also knew Lowry was the catalyst for a championship run if surrounded by the right pieces.
Without having a rock like Lowry to ensure Kawhi’s transition aligned with Toronto’s vision, their mission of reaching the NBA finals would have remained impossible. Fortunately, Lowry’s impact is colossal, and his presence has made this Raptor run possible.
