Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry discusses watching the growth of former Raptors teammates from afar and why he dislikes playing against Fred VanVleet.
- Kyle, Fred had said that you're still watching pretty much all the Raptors' games. Why is that important for you [INAUDIBLE]? And maybe, what's it like just to watch it, see it from the other side?
KYLE LOWRY: They're my guys. I said earlier, they-- Freddy's a little-- like my little brother. I talk to him every other day, twice, three times a week, four times a week maybe. Depends on the [INAUDIBLE].
And OG, Pascal, Chris Boucher, those guys are guys that I've been knowing now since they've been in the NBA. And I'm just happy to be able to be a part of their successes in their career. And I just keep-- I love to watch them be more successful and grow and continue to build their legacy, their career. [INAUDIBLE] their families. And I just wanted to be big brother, who's really proud of these little brothers.
- Kyle, Freddy said that he enjoys playing against you.
KYLE LOWRY: Mm-hmm.
- Do you enjoy playing against him?
KYLE LOWRY: No. I love playing against him. He's one of the most competitive players [INAUDIBLE] ever. From day one in training camp picking up full court, picking me up full court, joining me to shoot before training camp practices, and just learning he's a guy that. like, his career, his path is gonna be a story just gonna continue to be one of the greatest stories in NBA history because he's gonna continue to get better.
And for me to know him and to be a part of that, I hate playing against him. But I love playing at the same time. Thank you, guys.
- Thanks, Kyle.
