Raptors such as Kyle Lowry appreciate Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and the rest, but recognize that they are all playing in the same league, on the same court. There is no awe factor, no intimidation (even when Garnett talks, as he is prone to do, or starts swinging his elbows).
“I don’t think we’re going to be intimidated by anybody,” Lowry said after a team practice on Thursday at the Barclays Center.
“They’re just players. You respect them. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, those guys have got rings. They’ve got points, they’ve got accolades, they have all those things.”
