Heat’s Kyle Lowry Undergoes Incredible Body Transformation

Heat’s Kyle Lowry Undergoes Incredible Body Transformation

Kyle Lowry is an NBA champion, six-time All-Star and one of the most consistently reliable guards of his generation.

The respect he commands from his peers and observers is justified and speaks for itself.

That said, Lowry has always had one fatal flaw: he tends to let his body go. And it’s not any sort of big secret. It is something both he and his former teammate, DeMar DeRozan, have publicly addressed.

“Whose idea was it to walk to McDonalds to get McFlurrys at like three in the morning? It was yours,” DeRozan said to Lowry during an interview with Dan Le Batard.

“That was when I was fat, though,” Lowry replied.

Well, Lowry was fat once again in 2021-22. Between that and his injuries, he had a rough go of things in his first season with the Miami Heat. It got so bad that team president Pat Riley openly called him out afterward.

A consummate professional, Lowry heard the critique loud and clear.

This week a photo emerged of Lowry looking incredibly skinny. And seeing as the offseason is still in full swing, it’s clear that he took last season’s failures and Riley’s criticism to heart.

With social media being what it is nowadays, reactions came in swiftly:

Last season Lowry put up 13.4 points per game on 44 percent shooting from the field and 37.7 percent shooting from beyond the arc. In addition, he also chipped in 7.5 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game.

It will be interesting to see if a better conditioned version of the 36-year-old can improve on that in 2022-23.

The Heat are having a busy offseason. They are 1 of 3 teams in the hunt for a Patrick Beverley trade and the “most determined” suitor for one of the league’s premiere superstars.

They seem to have a Plan A and a Plan B for this summer – plus a Plan C option if all else fails.

There have been some unfortunate offseason controversies that have mired the team, but for the most part everyone seems focused on what lays ahead.

Miami came very close to making the Finals and competing for a championship in 2021-22.

Will the Heat be able to right that wrong come next year?

Time will tell.
