Kyle Lowry: 2006, Round 1, Pick #24
Don’t look now, but yes, that’s a third Raptors starter on the list. Masai Ujiri has really built something special in Toronto.
Lowry didn’t come with much pedigree out of Villanova, and he struggled to make a consistent impact for the Grizzlies and Rockets before finally landing in The North and turning into an All Star late in his 20s in a rare late breakout.
Lowry is more than the numbers, constantly taking charges and grabbing 50–50 balls, doing the little things that make him one of the game’s great point guards.
Notable Achievement: 1x All NBA, 5x All Star
