Lowry got to Toronto after being traded by the Houston Rockets without knowing what would come for him in his career. With his partner in crime DeMar DeRozan, they put Toronto back on the map as a contender in the East. Unfortunately, the duo was broken up as DeRozan was in the Kawhi deal.
Although this move was the biggest in Raptors history, not only for the player that was coming in but also because it ended up in the only NBA Championship the Raptors and the country of Canada have won.
Now, it’s time to turn the page for both Lowry and the Raptors and form a new path without each other.
