If we could ask a favour though. We're welcoming feedback and suggestions on perhaps things you'd like to see. At the end of the day we're doing this for you guys by making everything here easier available for you the user. Please send your feedback (Regardless if its positive or negative) to raptorsrepublic@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance and we hope you guys enjoy the application.

    Everything Kyle Lowry

    Came across a little gem on ESPN, couldn't find a real Kyle Lowry thread, so here it is.

    ESPN ranks Kyle Lowry as the 13th best free agent this year, although they do count a bunch of guys who may not opt out (Melo, Lebron, Bosh, etc.).

    Here's the article (insider) :

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/story...ee-agents-2014

    They peg Lowry's Suggested AAV (average annual value) as $8.5 million for 3 years, which would make me thrilled.

    Here's the write up:

    Along with Stephenson, arguably no player has increased his market value this season as much as Lowry did, playing at what should have been considered an All-Star level and being the main driving force behind Toronto's ascension into the playoff picture (although both of those facts should be tempered by the reality that he's done it in the Eastern Conference). His caustic personality hasn't gone away, and he is 27, so he doesn't get the full bump to an eight-figure AAV.
    Lowry's shooting troubles of late may actually help that very team friendly deal come to fruition.

    Kyle Lowry - Defensive Dynamo 18/19 (Charge Drawing Champion)

    Daymn. That's the stuff championships are made of man, any coach will tell ya. Crisp switching, Defence in the post, perimeter D, transition D, team D communication, positioning for charges, and positioning for steals on passing lanes, all elite.

    Kawhi just said he texted him....so a part lie?
    I'm just poking fun. They definitely spoke and Kyle was pretty prickly at that media avail at the start of the year.

    Bbref currently has him at a 65% probability.

    By the time he hangs it up I'm guessing it'll be closer to 90% or above.

    Whoa Kyle lying!!! Kawhi and Kyle said they talked immediately after the trade, but he said he hadn't spoken to him in that interview.

    I'm just glad how at the national level people finally saw what Lowry is and what he means to this team. Also really happy for the guy, showed the most pure joy with both the ECF trophy and the Larry OB. Did whatever it took.

    I'm so happy for this man. Always believed in him. At the beginning of the year I'd have friends who'd rag on him and I was adamant that we put our faith in him. Paired with a superstar, he stepped up huge. The start of that closeout game was as electric as I've ever seen him play. He went and got it. Unbelievable.

    No question now that his jersey gets retired before DeMar's...maybe do them together, that might be fitting. If kawhi re-signs and has a long career here, that order still might be re-written.

    If we'd have lost to the Sixers for sure or the Bucks and Kawhi left, I think he would have been traded lol

    It was 11-2 Lowry vs GSW at the start of Game 6 yesterday. KLOE on the biggest stage of them all. What a blast!
