    With Lowry an official Raptor, does Toronto have the potential to become a top 10 defensive team? Last year we were middle of the pack and with another full year under Casey and the addition of Jonas and Lowry I think that Raptors could be top 10 for sure.
    I agree, but the question is does that mean we will win? we need to score some points too...

    2 interesting reads on Lowry.

    Line of the articles:

    Williams, now the Raptors’ director of player development, first met Lowry when he was in high school. Williams’ alma mater, Villanova, was trying to recruit Lowry. Villanova wanted Williams to help with the pursuit, which was ultimately successful.

    “Point blank: Kyle, he was an a—— when I first met him,” Williams says. “I didn’t have a great relationship with him.

    “He was dismissive. He was rude. But you know what? He was focused. At that age, at that time, he thought he had to be a certain way. Being from Philadelphia, not only do they have to be tough, but they have to have that persona that they are tough.”

    While the Houston situation proves Lowry can still get defensive, he has matured as his career has progressed. Heimerdinger says Lowry seemed far happier when he last saw him, when he was injured with the Grizzlies. Lowry is now a father to Karter, his son with Ayahna Cornish, who excelled on the court at both Cardinal Dougherty and St. Joseph’s University. He eschews a lot of the glamour that comes with the life of a professional basketball player. He frequently makes unpublicized trips to children’s hospitals.

    Williams has been monitoring Lowry’s growth for a decade now.

    “Now, it’s a beautiful relationship,” Williams says. “He has an older brother, but I feel like I’m an older brother, too.”

    I like the comment about the unpublicized trips to children's hospitals. It says something about his character that it isn't a part of the NBA marketing crap.
