Toronto traded Kyle Lowry to the Miami Heat at the beginning of the free agency. He was arguably the most veteran player on the Raptors’ roster before he moved to the Heat. He recently had a sit down with CJ McCollum on the radio where they chatted about several things. Kyle discussed how he got into the game by looking for basketball tryouts in the newspaper with his brother.
