Raptors Media Day: Kyle Lowry Interview

A summary of Kyle Lowry's media day interview, as the point guard talked about the importance of Lou Williams, staying motivated, and the Raptors are division favorites.

Kyle Lowry held court at media day and you can watch the full interview above. Some key points:

  • He's very happy to have the roster back and in tact. Lowry also cited James Johnson and Lou Williams as key additions, especially noting that Williams could be a fourth quarter scoring option for the team
  • Lowry shrugged off suggestions that he will now lack motivation having been rewarded a huge contract. This is going to be an ongoing discussion especially if he gets off to a slow start. But Lowry says he is still very motivated and wants to prove this team can win a lot of games
  • He brushed off suggestions that the Raptors are favorites to win the Atlantic Division. Although, from here, we'll say what Kyle wouldn't: the expectation is most definitely for the team to repeat as division champs this season.
