Kyle Lowry & DeMar DeRozan Bromance Is So Strong That It's Making Us Miss The OG Raptors

If you ever doubted whether Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan would still be best friends after the Raptors, Sunday night's faceoff between the Miami Heat and the Chicago Bulls probably had you feeling pretty silly.

The NBA stars' bromance was on full display as their teams duked it out at the United Center in Illinois, and dare I say, it might've been heartwarming enough to melt even the iciest of sports fans' hearts.

The two could be seen embracing and joking around like a couple of giddy high school kids ahead of their game on Sunday, footage that'll have you calling your best friend up quicker than you can say, "I miss you, bro."

As if that wasn't wholesome enough, DeRozan also opened up about his ride-or-die relationship with Lowry during a post-game conference, because that's clearly all anyone wants to talk about.

“If my mom had another son, it’d be Kyle. If his mom had another son, it’d be me, you know? That’s as simple as I can put it,” DeRozan gushed to reporters. “That’s how close we are. That’s what it is to me. He’s like a big brother to me, and vice versa, I’m like a big brother him even though he’s older. That's just my man.”

And of course, Lowry also had nothing but praise for his brother from another mother during his post-game interview.

“He’s in a great place,” the Raptors GOAT said. “He’s leading these young guys. He's showing these guys how to, you know, win and close out games, and he’s kind of showing the world that he still is really, really talented at basketball.”

The much-anticipated return of the Raptors' GOAT Kyle Lowry to Toronto could go off with a whimper rather than a shout next month following changes to the NBA's schedule and new COVID-19 health measures.

On Monday, the team announced a list of alterations to its 2021-2022 calendar. A total of six games were rescheduled, including the Raptors bout against the Miami Heat at Scotiabank Arena, which has been moved to February 1, 2022.

If you're a die-hard Raptors fan, you'll want to start wearing your mask properly if you want to watch the entire game. Scotiabank Arena has started to crack down on mask mandates and is kicking people out of the venue who aren't following the rules.

According to the Toronto Star, the number of Raptors fans ejected from the arena saw a slight uptick this week after 17 non-compliers were kicked out during the team's Tuesday faceoff against the Philadelphia 76ers.
