    I totally understand Kyle's answer. The Raptors traded his best friend and most loyal Raptor ever, after lying to his best friend and most loyal Raptor ever. Yeah, Kyle was pissed on a personal level.
    It wasn't a lie, it was business.

    • Kyle said last year he kind of wanted to be a spur. Masai said ok I'll bring the spurs to you.

        you're more like Lowry than any of us.

        Lowry: "As long as I'm winning I'll be in Toronto"
        golden: "As long as he performs I'll like him as a player"
        On that point, sure. Masai made that clear.... the goal in Toronto is championship. Anybody not on board with that?

          DeMar, Lowry's best friend, told Lowry he was lied to by Masai. Doesn't matter what really was said by Masai to DeMar, Lowry is going to believe DeMar.. If you don't believe your best friend, you're not really a friend.
          If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

          • Kyle has always been loyal to winning and success, not to Toronto.

            When he re-signed in 2014, I knew that it was because of the attention, success, love and money he was able to secure. Again, Toronto was the most ideal despite a team like Houston wanting him back. He had everything the first time around.

            Then when he re-signed again, we all knew that there was a legitimate chance he'd leave Toronto for San Antonio... until they threw all that money at Patty Mills. When the money was no longer favourable, he went back for the +$30M paycut, with a chance to stay competitive. If he'd gone to San Antonio, barring that changes what would've happened with the Kawhi situation, I think that team is right there with Golden State/Houston.

            I don't know if it's ALL about championships for Lowry, moreso if all the boxes are checked off.

            DeRozan, on the other hand, probably would've re-signed if the Raptors were a shitty 41-41 team. Lowry would jump ship I believe, which is why he's had to suck it up, and constantly refer to the trade as a "business," knowing he'd snake the franchise for more things addressed on his little bucket list.

              People can talk about Kyle's poopy pants or big booty all they like.

              Guy is a fucking G.

              Just carry us to the promised land, Kyle.

              • Lowe has Lowry in his things he likes this week (and at #1 to boot):
                http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...yson-tatum-nba

                1. Let's give Kyle Lowry a signature move
                It can be hard to pinpoint what makes Lowry great beyond shooting and defense, which admittedly comprise a lot of it. So much of Lowry's brilliance lives in his bobs and weaves through the nooks and crannies of the game -- in those moments, invisible to some, between when he gives up the ball and when he gets it back. It's hard to conjure a signature move from those two-second bursts of bouncy hyperactivity.

                A nomination:

                http://media.video-cdn.espn.com/gifs..._Shot_2gif.mp4

                That is a Kyle Lowry shot. He is so good at zooming into the lane, stopping on a dime, spinning, and reclining waaaaaaay back so no defender can bother that gorgeous, high-arcing fadeaway.


                A second very-Lowry thing:

                http://media.video-cdn.espn.com/gifs...Drive_2gif.mp4


                He has been fooling suckers with this bit for years. Lean toward that shooter coming off a screen -- doesn't matter if it's Kawhi Leonard, DeMar DeRozan, CJ Miles, Terrence Ross, Norman Powell, Lou Williams, or Greivis Vasquez -- and Lowry will fake the pass there, and zip into the lane untouched.

                Lowry might be in the midst of his best season. He leads the league in assists. He is spoon-feeding Serge Ibaka -- thriving as a full-time center -- with one-touch, thread-the-needle pocket passes. Lowry has dished dimes on 28 percent of his ball screens, the third-highest mark among all rotation players, beyond only Milos Teodosic and Ryan Arcidiacono -- two guys who would be happy literally never shooting -- per Second Spectrum data.

                Lowry is always on the lookout for Pascal Siakam in flight, and Pascal Siakam is always in flight. He's shooting 61 percent on 2-pointers, by far a career high.

                Toronto is deep, nasty, and smart -- a delight to watch.

                      KeonClark = Cabbie burner account confirmed. But KeonClark is more entertaining than Cabbie these days. He's lost his edge.
