Analysis: Kyle Lowry waited a long time for the NBA Finals

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 05/31/2019 - 18:43
TORONTO --- Kyle Lowry had never been to an NBA Finals game. This was the deal he made with himself: He wasn't going to see the NBA's biggest stage until he earned the right to be there as a player.

That's why on Thursday night, the Toronto point guard took a little look around at what he's been missing. "It was pretty cool," Lowry said. "It was pretty good."
