Kyle Lowry says he wasn't throwing shade at LeBron after Game 7

May 17, 2016

Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry led his team to the Eastern Conference Finals with a magnificent performance in Game 7 against the Miami Heat, scoring 35 points with nine assists and seven rebounds. Immediately after the game, Lowry seemed to pay Cavaliers star and four-time MVP LeBron James a backhanded compliment in an interview with Doris Burke, and his comments quickly went viral.

On Tuesday before Game 1 of the Raptors-Cavaliers series, Lowry insisted that he wasn't taking a shot at James, and said that he believes James will eventually be regarded as one of the best of all time.
