Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry admits changes need to be made after team’s sweep in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.
Poor performances bring changes, just ask Kyle Lowry
Following the Raptors game 4 loss to the Washington Wizards, which resulted in a series sweep, Kyle Lowry voiced his opinion on his organization, saying that changes likely need to be made.
Lowry continued, expanding on just how painful the loss was.
Sounds pretty miserable.
So what, exactly, does Lowry believe needs to be change for the Raptors to improve? Judging by his other comments, head coach Dwane Casey may want to sleep with one eye open.
Let’s give Lowry the benefit of the doubt here. Losing in the playoffs is always painful and getting swept in the manner they did just adds insult to injury. He was emotional and maybe he just let it get the best of him.
Even so, you have to wonder, if Lowry has the gall to say this to a media scrum, imagine what he is saying to friends or teammates? He cannot possibly be the only one in the organization that feels this way.
Even without Lowry’s latest comments, this has not been a great stretch for the Raptors.
This Wizards series was the team’s first seven-game series sweep in franchise history. Additionally, it was the first time the Raptors have been swept in a seven-game series and the seventh time in eight attempts that they have failed to advance past the first round. The Raptors have not won a playoff series since 2001. Fourteen years ago.
You do not want to be on that side of history.
Meanwhile, off the court, fellow rappers are trolling Drake, the Raptor’s most famous fan, on social media.
Clearly, this is not working for Toronto. Try something else and hope for the best.
