Kyle Lowry organized a trip to the Bahamas for a majority of the Miami Heat players between the end of the regular season and the start of the first round.
Players said the trip was a welcomed excursion for a mental break and bonding.
“Kyle met with me and told me what he wanted to do with the team. He had all the logistics figured out and I gave him my blessings,” Spoelstra told Yahoo Sports. “There are only about a handful of players like Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Udonis Haslem who’ve played for this franchise that I know could have pulled off something like this. It shows you how special Kyle is and how much we really respect him as a person and a player.”
Lowry has struggled in the playoffs since injuring his hamstring, which has left the Heat with a decision between he and Gabe Vincent.
