Well, well, well, what do we have here?
The Toronto Raptors chase to repeat as NBA Champions was cut short Friday night after falling to the Boston Celtics in Game 7, 92-87.
While Wizards fans probably could care less about who advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals, they're certain to like these comments from Raptors' G Kyle Lowry, postgame.
"When we got swept by the Wizards I read every single article. I read every single thing that was said about me - good, bad, evil, terrible, awesome, and I used it as motivation," Lowry said. "And that's what [Siakam] is going to do. That's the advice I would give him."
Lowry's comments came after he was asked about the advice he'd offer to up-and-coming star teammate forward Pascal Siakam who was extremely underwhelming in the series.
But enough about that.
Remember the time! April 26, 2015, Washington defeated Toronto in Game 4 of their first-round NBA playoff series, 125-94 -- it was Washington’s first playoff sweep since the 1977-78 season.
John Wall averaged 17.3 points and 12.5 assists in the series while Bradley Beal averaged 20.8 points and 5.3 rebounds. Lowry came through with a disappointing 12.3 points on 31% shooting, with 4.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds.
Yes, the Raptors won the NBA Championship in 2019 but who cares, Washington living rent-free within the head of Lowry, at least for a little bit, is a championship in itself.
