As a whole, the Toronto Raptors have already provided a bunch of adorable moments this season. From Siakam’s and VanVleet’s bromance to the Nutcracker performance, tons of moments have had our hearts melting. However, Kyle Lowry might have taken home the prize for most adorable NBA moments of 2020 after pulling off a heartwarming mid-game kiss last night.
Lowry managed to find a little father-son time during the Raptors bout against the Spurs on Sunday, January 12, 2020.
The 33-year-old, who was battling San Antonio’s Bryn Forbes for the ball at the time, managed to tumble right onto Toronto baseline where his family was seated.
In a video posted to Instagram, Lowry can be seen getting helped off the court, but, his gaze is fixed on the sidelines.
The camera then pans over to reveal Lowry’s youngest son Karter who the NBA star sneaks a kiss to before running off to do what he does best.
The brief clip is about as wholesome as gets, and the look on Karter’s face is priceless.
Sadly, the Raptors did ultimately lose to the Spurs 105-104 with Lowry finishing the game with 16 points and a season-high 15 assists.
However, it was hard to feel to bummed after the adorable moment that gave fans a glimpse into the beloved Raptors' personal life — a human moment from a genuine basketball machine.
Lowry told ESPN back in June how much he loves raising his kids in the city.
The beloved Raptor even went as far as to reveal that his kids are enrolled in school the 6ix.

"My kids will never see the way I grew up, and that's a thing I am happy that they won't see, but they'll understand where they come from, where I come from," Lowry gushed in the interview.
Lowry’s boys Karter and Kameron are reportedly involved in various programs and camps in the GTA. Which hopefully means the Raptors player is here for the long haul.
The Raptors will play the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday, January 15, 2020, at 8:00 p.m.
