Kyle Lowry's Mom Went To Last Night's Raptors Game & She's Still Repping Merch

The Toronto Raptors may not have Kyle Lowry on the court anymore, but they have his mom in the stands, and by the looks of it, she's still a big fan.

Marie Hollaway took to Twitter on Thursday night to share a few close-up photos from the team's bout against the Philadelphia 76ers with the caption "I couldn't stay away."

The iconic mother of two also shared a selfie of herself repping Raptors gear, causing fans to pour messages of love and appreciation into the comment thread.

Despite his trade to the Miami Heat over the summer, it's not surprising to see the Lowry family showing up for the Raptors. After all, the GOAT himself still has deep ties to the team.

Last month, the NBA star revealed that he still hopes Toronto will win another championship and hopes his absence will allow the team's rising stars Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, and OG Anunoby to come into their own.

"I want them to be the All-Stars. I want them to be the champions again. I want them to get opportunities to create generational wealth," he said.

Kawhi Leonard's time with the Raptors might have been brief, but his role in guiding the team to their first NBA Championship has forever cemented his place in the team's history — well that, and the fact that he's a walking, talking meme-machine.

Fred VanVleet, who also became a prominent player during Toronto's 2018-2019 season, appeared to set the record straight about his former teammate's often baffling personality during an appearance on the All The Smoke podcast last month.

A devastating loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night placed Toronto's home record at a dismal 2-8. And, as you could probably guess, they aren't happy about it, especially not Pascal Siakam.
