Happy Thursday! Congrats to Kyle Lowry for hitting a milestone last night: his 10,000th point as a Toronto Raptor.

Lowry revitalized his NBA career at Toronto, where he landed in 2012 after stops at Memphis and Houston. He played his best basketball with the Raptors, becoming a six-time NBA all-star and an NBA champion in 2019.

He joins Chris Bosh and DeMar DeRozan as the only players in franchise history to score 10,000 points as a Raptor.
