After joining the Heat in 2021, many have termed veteran point guard Kyle Lowry "washed." In the 2023 NBA playoffs, 37-year-old Lowry is a critical reserve for Miami.
The Heat are on the verge of reaching the NBA Finals for the second time in four years. Lowry has championship experience despite not being with the Heat in 2020's Finals.
Lowry and former Raptors superstar forward Kawhi Leonard won the 2019 NBA title. Toronto's first championship.
“Get another, then another. I can play this game well for a few more years. I want to keep winning.
Lowry never won another title or made another Finals appearance with Toronto. He signed a sign-and-trade contract that sent him to Miami in 2021.
Lowry and the Heat missed the NBA Finals last season by one game
Lowry and the Heat have a chance to redeem themselves in this year's East playoffs, up 3-0 on the Celtics. If they accomplish so and win the 2023 NBA title, Lowry will win his second title in 17 seasons.
The Boston Celtics defeated them in the Eastern Conference finals in seven games.
