Despite missing a last second shot that would have given the Raptors their first series win in 13 years, Kyle Lowry emerged as the unquestioned leader of a team thought to be closer to a top-five lottery pick than the playoffs at the beginning of the season.

Lowry joined TSN 1050 on Monday to discuss his personal growth, what was going through his mind on his final second drive and whether his future plans include staying in Toronto.

“That last play will be my summertime grind,” Lowry said of his final shot which was blocked by Paul Pierce in the lane as time expired. “That will be the picture in my head.”

Maturing from a player who had a reputation as someone who butted heads with his head coaches – including Dwane Casey – Lowry said he grew up on-and-off the court this season, taking a leadership role on a roster that featured the youngest starting lineup among NBA playoff teams.

Following the Raptors' elimination, the attention will now turn to Lowry's impending free agency, and whether general manager Masai Ujiri will be able to keep his team's most important piece.

At this point, Lowry said he has not considered his future, although he had kind things to say about the team and city.

“Love the city, love being here, love being part of it. Love the organization, but haven't really thought about it.”
