What Had Happened Was: 5/8/17
Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.
Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry had to watch his team get swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference semifinals Sunday night, losing 109-102 to the reigning NBA champs. Even though Lowry did not suit up, a late scratch because of an ankle injury, he was a hot topic all over social media.
Lowry’s outfit had him being compared with a host of other celebrities and actors. So even though the All-Star guard couldn’t offer his team anything on the court, he at least gave fans a good laugh while testing their pop culture knowledge.
