What can you say about Kyle Lowry and what he means to Toronto? Some would say he first arrived to an impossible situation, playing for the NBA’s only Canadian team, a franchise that no one ever took serious enough to include in potential contender talks.
That’s fair. We weren’t anywhere close to contention when he arrived. Fans were worn down by betting on Bargnani, watching Chris Bosh consistently marching to the finals each year with Miami, and DeRozan emerging as our heart and soul without any real parts around him. But then Kyle arrived.
Once this new team started making the playoffs, they never stopped. After some heartbreaking defeats at the hands of players like Paul Pierce and LeBron James and a devastatingly risky DeRozan/Kawhi trade, Kyle brought us a championship. What an amazing nine-year run.
This episode is dedicated to Kyle Lowry and contains some snippets from his journey here as well as some amazing insight from some of our amazing guests like Alan Shane Lewis, Derick Deonarain, Cathryn Naiker and Katie Heindl!
Thanks, Kyle. Time for a new era.
