It didn’t take long for Kyle Lowry to endear himself with Miami Heat fans.
After just a couple of pre-season games, the former Toronto Raptors guard and fan favourite has made quite the first impression in South Beach.
If social media reaction is any indication, Lowry, who signed a three-year, $90 million (U.S.) deal with the Heat this past off-season, has had no troubles fitting in with a new team and new city.
The transition appears to be a difficult one for Raptors fans as they watch from afar while Heat supporters tweet about their new point guard. Lowry helped bring a championship to Toronto and is largely seen as the greatest Raptor of all-time.
