While some Philadelphia 76ers fans might not have forgotten about their 2019 post-season coming to an end at the hands of Kyle Lowry‘s squad, count the Toronto Raptors veteran as unfazed by the chatter from his hometown crowd.
Fresh off an injury spell that kept him out for 11 games, the Philadelphia native returned home for his third game back in the lineup to take on the 76ers Sunday — an eventual 110-104 loss for his Raptors. He found himself on the receiving end of some heckles from the Philly crowd.
Lowry reportedly responded to the fans with a chorus of “Come see me” as he exited the tunnel, according to Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Marcus Hayes, adding, “I live at 20th and Lehigh. Come see me!”
The 2019 champ also addressed the heated exchange after the game.
“I don’t know, he was talking too much,” Lowry told reporters Sunday when asked what transpired between him and the heckler. “He talked too much — I don’t know him, but he ain’t worth my time.”
That said, the Villanova alum also said he feels no ill will towards the 76ers faithful.
“I don’t care, this is Philadelphia,” Lowry said. “I respect it. I love it. Because when I come home … I’m going to be here. So, if they’ve got a problem, they can find me.”
Lowry posted 26 points in Toronto’s loss on Sunday, pacing the Raptors and matching Philadelphia’s Tobias Harris for the game-high mark.
