In the early-goings of an MVP-calibre season, Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry has let his play do the talking.

Averaging 17.8 points on a career-best 49.7 per cent shooting while dishing out a league-leading 11.3 assists per game, Lowry has positioned his team to an excellent 11-1 start to the season.

After an off-season that saw Lowry’s best friend, DeMar DeRozan, traded and the firing of the only Raptors head coach he had ever known in Dwane Casey, Lowry has remained rather mum on the two topics outside of what he said on Media Day in September.

In an interview with ESPN’s Marc J. Spears published Thursday, however, Lowry finally opened up about the major events of the summer.
