HoopsHype Kyle Lowry rumors

But given the chance, Lowry stalled. He diminished the club’s hot start as a product of being ahead of the curve coming out of training camp, suggesting that when other teams got up to their speed, the Raptors got caught. He spoke vaguely of "things internally that probably need to be fixed." And he didn’t exactly bubble over with enthusiasm regarding Casey: "I respect Casey as a man. He’s a hell of a guy," said Lowry, who played four of his worst games of the season against Washington, on the heels of slump in production that began in earnest in the early days of the 2015. "[But] at the end of the day, like I said, it’s not my choice, not my decision. At the end of the day, yeah, if he’s the coach, I’m a player. I’ve said that a couple of years now. At the end of the day, whoever the coach is, if he’s the coach, then I’ll be back playing for coach Casey." SportsNet

Those who know Lowry say that it would be wrong to put too much emphasis on what he said or how he said it. Lowry and coaches have always been territory rich for head butting, but by all accounts Lowry and Casey had a positive end-of-season meeting, and if they weren’t always sending affectionate texts, were able to work together.

He was forced to the bench in the second quarter with three fouls Tuesday and it coincided with a lineup switch Wizards coach Randy Wittman used, going small to spread the floor with Pierce at power forward, which led to scores in 14 of the last 17 first-half possessions in the stretch that decided the game. "I've got to figure out a way to stay on the floor," Lowry said afterward. "I feel s----- right now." ESPN.com

But this time, Lowry won’t be satisfied if the Raptors come up short again, even if encouraging hugs and uplifting cheers are sure to follow. “We want to play as long as possible and if we lose in the first round, I think I will be really disappointed,” Lowry said. Washington Post

The Minnesota Timberwolves duo are playing their first game in Canada as NBA teammates on Wednesday against the Toronto Raptors as part of Canada Basketball night. Before the game, they posed for a picture with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Alas, in an embarrasing gaffe, the PMO's official Twitter tagged Bennett — whose Twitter handle is the really confusing @anthonybennett, not even an underscore — but identified him Kyle Lowry, the Raptors point guard, who is from Philadelphia.
