Kyle Lowry is brutally honest on his day back home in Toronto
Kyle Lowry spent a total of nine seasons with Toronto Raptors prior to signed a three-year, $85 million contract with Miami Heat last season. It’s no surprise that he’s leaving a team he’s built on essentially his legacy and winning his first NBA title.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Heat Guardian hasn’t played in Toronto in front of electric Raptors fans since February 2020. He’s scheduled to return to the Six on February 3 next year, and Lowry revealed. that he is extremely nervous. Via Marc Spears of The Undefeated:
“I’m a man’s man, but I knew I would be a little sensitive and cry that day. I do not know. I can keep it,” Lowry said. “I talked to [former Raptors teammate] DeMar [DeRozan] about it. But it was one of those days where I knew there was going to be a lot of love for me and I was going to return the love, it was going to be exciting when it went down because I didn’t know what to expect.”
One of the reasons Lowry might even have a chance with the Heat is because of how much he’s grown as a player and as a person in Toronto. The veteran player made six All-Star appearances while contributing a huge part to their NBA championship in 2019 alongside Kawhi Leonard.
Now, Lowry is chasing another ring with the promising Heat team, who are shaping up to be one of the best teams in the Association at both ends of the floor. His leadership and versatile skills have greatly benefited Miami, but Lowry’s heart will forever live in Toronto.
