Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry described the feeling as 'kinda weird' given the uncertainty of his future in Toronto on the eve of the NBA trade deadline.

In their 135-111 win over the Denver Nuggets, he left it all on the floor with a gutsy performance, recording eight points, nine rebounds and five assists, finishing a +42 in his 33 minutes on court, even receiving a FaceTime call from rapper Drake during his post-game press conference.
"Guys, we have a special guest here.," Lowry said before showing Drake on the other end of the call to reporters.
"If you guys have any… I'm here to translate. I'm his translator," Drake jokingly said.
"No you're not. No… I'll hit you when I'm done, bro," Lowry responded before ending his call with the Raptors' No.1 fan.

Following the game, Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said Lowry will "go down as maybe the greatest Raptor, I think."
"He plays harder than anyone I've ever seen," Nurse added. "There's no higher compliment I can give than that."
While it's unclear if Lowry has played his last game in a Raptor uniform, earlier in the day, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the team was discussing deals "on multiple fronts" for both Lowry and Norman Powell.
