Welcome back to Days of Our Kyle Lowry. 

On this week's episode...

OK, so when last we left you, the Knicks had shut down talks for Lowry before the Raptors went on a tear because they didn't want to give up a draft pick and were tired of being made fun of by us the media. Then the Raptors got hot and Lowry has played at an All-Star caliber pace, and it seems crazy to trade him because they could actually maybe win a first-round series. (They aim high in Toronto.)

But with the trade deadline a week away and the Knicks not exactly having righted the ship, we're back to those conversations. 

Oh, OK, so they are willing to trade Lowry. Wait, no. From Yahoo Sports:

So basically, the Knicks want Lowry now, but the Raptors don't want to move him.

I'm still not in on not moving a soon-to-be free agent when you can get something in return for him, but the team is so happy with winning, and the media's all fired up and the fans are having fun believing that there's not a lot of harm in it. This Raptors team isn't really tied to their future at all, but that doesn't mean they can't have some fun for a few more months. 

The Knicks, however, are having a harder time having fun.
