"Say what you want but we are Now CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!"
Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry has returned to instagram for the first time since the NBA All Star weekend. This time around, Lowry was showing off his most recent achievement, the Larry O'Brien trophy.
As seen in the IG post embedded below, Lowry shared a series of photos with the trophy, his wife and kids, and his teammates as the Raptors prepare to celebrate their first-ever NBA title with the city of Toronto.
"No words to explain these feelings and images !!! Hard work pays off I PROMISE!!! #WETHENORTH!!!!!! Say what you want but we are Now CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD!!"
Kawhi Leonard was crowned NBA Finals MVP following Thursday night's victory at Oracle Arena but it was Lowry who provided the spark from the jump in Game 6. The 33-year old point guard finished with a team-high 26 points to go along with 10 assists, seven rebounds and three steals as Toronto dethroned the two-time defending NBA champs.
"Words can't explain it, to be honest," Lowry told ESPN's Rachel Nichols. "But the feelings of just success, the adversity, the ups and downs. It's what you work for as a professional, as a man. You just wanna be at the top of your game when you need to be at the top of your game. And it all kinda worked out at some point."
