“Thank you to the wonderful Raptors fans across the NBA, especially in Canada! I am amazed by your passion for our team and the support you have given me,” said Lowry in a Raptors press release. “When I re-signed here this summer I said one of the great things is being able to play for an entire country. This is further proof how really special that is.”
The guard earned 805,290 votes. Of course, this is no surprise to us—he’s been averaging career highs this year, and was even named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week in December. (Oh, and should we mention that the Raptors told us Lowry had their full support in this exclusive interview?)
