    Man this guy is awesome. One of the few stories in this league worth passing on, wish him the best. Great farewell post.

    Freddy seems like the guy who has been groomed for this. All the non-basketball leadership things Kyle brought need to come from somewhere and Freddy seems like he has the makeup of being that dude holding guys accountable etc
    100%. It was obvious when we re-signed Fred after his 2017-18, Bench Mob/6MOTY year that he was the anointed, chosen one, heir apparent. Masai was quoted (jokingly), saying he would have traded Kyle's ass on numerous occasions and I think Fred has always been the kinder, gentler Lowry-lite backup plan in case that happened. And that day finally happened.

    But Kyle matured a lot after we won the chip. He mellowed out and became more endearing to the fanbase, media and openly supportive of his coach. If we didn't win the chip, there would be people wanting to run him out of town years ago as a playoff choker. Fortunately, Lowry was able to go out with his head held high with nothing but respect and well wishes (other than everybody around here should be wishing the Heat to fail spectacularly).

    This sign and trade so far is only helping Kyle . Am I wrong ?
    Think the Raps are pretty happy getting Achiuwa.

    I was thinking that same too. I think it even came up off hand in an interview Yuta did for that Japanese Olympic team.

    One of my favourite memories was the November 2014 game against the Bucks, the one we won 124-82. Not an obvious choice, but at the time, I was immobile and miserable and hadn't smiled in a long time. Watching this game was legitimately a joyful experience. None of the Raps could do anything wrong that night and I found myself laughing, of all things.

    Lowry is the last guy from that 2014 roster to head out.

    Thanks, man. Best of luck; I know Miami is gonna love you. GROAT.

    In Toronto making 30 million a year we as fans would appreciate anything Kyle does cause of what he given us in the past . He is going to the Heat and that means 30 million dollars of expectations . Can his body give them 30 million dollars every night ? Heck in year 3 of Lowry's contract he will have a 35 year old Butler making 48 million a year . This Heat team is either going to be really really good or might be a disaster in 3 years .

    Kyle embodied the grittiness that it takes to be a thriving Canadian. When it snows over night and you got to shovel your ass off and still get to work on time. When people count you out, but you know; they know nothing. When you greet your adversary with a smile, until game time comes.

    He was not Canadian, but playing for the only Canadian team, he played like a true Canadian.

    All the best Kyle (unless we meet you in the playoffs)
