Kyle Lowry’s midair flop is glorious

Not only is Raptors’ Kyle Lowry an All-Star, he also is a flop-star. But what makes this flop so wonderful is that Kyle flops in midair against the 76’ers.

Past unnecessarily haunting fans of Toronto Raptors

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports For longtime fans of the Toronto Raptors that had become accustomed to leaving basketball behind at the end of the regular season, it’s hard to believe that Canada’s lone NBA franchise has now been a respected playoff contender for a little more than a year.
