Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry and Miami Heat small forward Jimmy Butler are really good friends and usually like to troll each other.
At the 2018 All-Star game, Butler trolled Lowry and the Canadian franchise on national television. When TNT analyst David Aldridge asked Butler what he thought about the Raptors, Jimmy — standing right next to Lowry and former Raptor DeMar DeRozan — didn’t mince words.

Moreover, last season, Butler FaceTimed Lowry from the Minnesota Timberwolves locker room and told him he was going to embarrass him in Toronto as they face the Raptors.
As you can see, Butler and Lowry love to fool around with each other. However, their latest interaction was actually pretty cool.
Lowry FaceTimed Butler after a fan told him the Heat star was his favorite player in the NBA.

Butler is having a great season with the Heat. The now five-time All-Star is averaging 20.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 6.3 assists while shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 83.6 percent from the free-throw line.
The Heat, led by Butler and rising star Bam Adebayo, are 33-15 on the season. They are tied with the Boston Celtics for third place in the East, just two games back of Lowry and the Raptors for second place.
Toronto is 36-14. Additionally, they have won 11 straight and are cruising right now.
