Kyle Lowry

Raptors growing by leaps and bounds without Rudy Gay | Toronto Sun

Kyle Lowry, easily the most hard-hit by the trade of his best friend and godfather to his son, has found another gear. Rather than lament Gay’s loss in the locker room he is thriving in an offence that has lost the sticky nature of a ball being thrown into a proven scorers’ hands and then staying there until said scorer could find a shot for himself. Now the ball moves from one set of hands to the next not settling until the defence has been run sufficiently ragged and don’t have that last burst to close on a shooter who all of a sudden has space and time to set up and calmly deliver.

“What am I gonna do?” Lowry said with a laugh. “It’s my job. It’s a business. Be mad? It is what it is to me. I’m really not worried about it. Until, like I said — I’ve said it 50 million times and I’ma say it 50 more — until the day something happens, I’m a Raptor and I’m gonna play for the Raptors and play hard for the Raptors.”

Does Kyle Lowry remain a Raptor? Part 1 of 2 | Raptors Rapture

Fans of the Toronto Raptors have been treated to a brilliant season from their point guard, Kyle Lowry. He has done everything one could ask: he’s averaging 15+ points PG [per game], and sports a much-improved assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.17/1. Kyle rebounds remarkably well for a small man, and is an excellent defender. There’s no indication of him causing any issues in the locker room, and even his habit of battling with his coach seems to have dissipated. Kyle is playing great – so let’s trade him.

Years of Dolan deals produced this Knicks disaster | New York Post

The home-and-home sweep to close 2013 certified that Ujiri’s pair of trades with the Knicks never looked better — two trades he made in two places that have wrecked owner James Dolan’s grand plan.

En route I asked Austin, “So are you in Caseys dog house or something? Why isn’t he giving you any PT?” To which he replied, “politics man. it’s all about politics in this game.” I said, “I hear ya brother.”

    I love the Austin Daye quote on why he isn’t playing. It’s not politics dude, it’s the fact that you are are one dimensional player whose one dimension has vanished.

      Or another way to play that:
      There is probably politics going on with playing time, but Austin Daye has not played well enough to get past the politics. Mo’ wow, mo’ PT

      Lolz i dont even think that story was real. I read the story and the guy telling it said that he saw Austin and some girl at the movies. The guy went up to him and asked Austin why he doesn’t play and Austin said because of politics. Then apparently the guy asked Austin to follow him on instagram so he could impress a girl and to his surprise he took out his phone right then and there and followed him. Either way he never got the girl. Dont think that was an actually quote by Daye, but either way your right.

    The New York Post article is very interesting in that if you shuffle some of the names around it could easily be an article about the Raptors from about 3 years ago.
