GIF: Kyle Lowry Fools Pistons By Feigning Timeout

Kyle Lowry, Andre Drummond

This isn’t standard, but a layup by Kyle Lowry with a little under four minutes to go in the first quarter in last night’s Raptors-Pistons game only happened after he lulled Detroit into thinking he was about to call a timeout. Lowry’s switch-up has been done before, but it’s still scarce enough to work. Read More »

Justin Bieber

Poor Justin Bieber just can’t seem to get out of his own way. While tweeting in support of Kyle Lowry’s bid for All-Star starter, the Canadian megastar failed to include the proper hashtag that makes a vote actually count – leaving the Toronto Raptors’ point guard out of approximately 31,000 extra tallies.

Stephen Curry Inches Closer To LeBron James For All-Star Game Votes Lead

Stephen Curry

As Steph Curry keeps racking up wins and mind-blowing highlights, LeBron James is resting an injured back and knee. Not only have those developments drastically altered the MVP race, but they’re influencing All-Star voting, too.

Dwane Casey Says He’ll Fight Coaches If Kyle Lowry Isn’t Voted All-Star Reserve

Dwane Casey, Kyle Lowry

Kyle Lowry deserves to be a starter in February’s All-Star game. But the relative anonymity of the Toronto Raptors point guard compared to counterparts like John Wall, Dwyane Wade, and Kyrie Irving trumps on-court play when it comes to starting spots for the mid-season classic. The opening five are decided by the fans, while the rest of the 12-man roster is chosen by conference coaches. Read More »

GIF: Kyle Lowry Dishes Dime Through Kevin Love’s 5-Hole

Kyle Lowry, LeBron James

Back to basketball. The Raptors looked really good early on against the Cavalirs last night, but LeBron James put on his cape and scored 35 on the way to a 105-101 win, their second against The North during their current eight game winning streak. Despite the Cavs pulling it out at home, Kyle Lowry found time to slot a pretty dime to Amir Johnson while also nutmegging Kevin Love. Read More »
