Kyle Lowry has always had a special bond with Drake. The bestselling artist and Raptors ambassador video called Lowry during tonight’s presser.
The Toronto Raptors broke their 9-game losing streak with an emphatic blowout victory last night. Kyle Lowry played in what was possibly his last game on the Raptors a few hours ahead of his 35th birthday.
He finished the game with a line of 8/5/9, which is a just depiction of his time with the Raptors – exceptional and underrated. Teammates Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby brought the pain to the Nuggets, as they proved with a 24-point win.
This was possibly Lowry’s final press conference as a team leader, and he made sure it was eventful. Kyle stopped halfway through the proceedings to address Drake, who’d Facetimed him just then.

Lowry started by shouting out the Raptors’ all-woman broadcast, the first in NBA history. He then noted how crazy it would’ve been to play this game in Toronto with fans instead of Tampa. He then switched his attention to Drake, who’d called him up just then.
“Guys, we have a special guest here.,” Lowry said before showing his phone, which had Drake on the other end, to reporters.
“If you guys have any… I’m here to translate. I’m his translator,” Drake can be heard saying.
“No you’re not. No… I’ll hit you when I’m done, bro,”
