3. All-time leading assist man in team history.
One of the amazing things about Lowry’s game is his ability to do everything at an above-average clip. Not only is he a great shooter and defender, but he is a premier passer in the NBA as well.
He has averaged 6.2 assists per game for his career, and his average has been nearly eight per game over the last three seasons. At the age of 35, in some way, his game is getting better.
He had several games with 15 or more assists this season, with 15 against Orlando and Detroit at separate points during the year and 19 assists vs. Boston on March 4. In his nine seasons as a Raptor, he dished out 4,277 assists. He is the franchise’s all-time leader, ahead of Jose Calderon.
Kyle Lowry is the greatest passer in Raptors history.
Lowry would become the all-time Raptors’assist leader in January 2020 when he hit the 3.771 plateaux in assists during a win over the Hawks, moving past Calderon. After years of constant flux at point guard, Lowry gave Toronto some stability and elite performance at that spot.
His 4,000 assists as a Raptor, which he obtained on January 14, made Damian Lillard, Stephen Curry, and Lowry the only players with 4,000 assists for their respective teams before his trade.
