Kyle Lowry on LeBron James: “One of the best players in the league besides Steph.”
— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) May 16, 2016
I love this. It’s the little guy of the East letting the big dogs know he’s not backing down. Obviously LeBron’s one of the two best players in the world, if not the best, but Lowry knew exactly what he was doing here. I one hundred percent believe that this jab is gonna bother the shit out of LeBron. The only problem for Lowry here is that this isn’t the LeBron of the mid 2000’s when he could easily be mentally rattled. This kind of stuff only serves as motivation here for him. The Raptors don’t have much of a shot in this series, and I think Lowry might have just made it harder. But I still like the move. The competitive side of me just can’t not like it, whether it was smart or not.
