Kawhi Leonard can't replace Kyle Lowry's best friend DeMar DeRozan, but he and Lowry share a special bond now as NBA champions. 

While meeting with the media following Toronto's 114-110 Game 6 victory over the Golden State Warriors Thursday night, Leonard revealed what he texted to Kyle Lowry once the San Antonio Spurs traded him to the Raptors

The chemistry built between the two since that text was sent was palpable when they sat down together for an interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols: 

Along with Danny Green, the Finals MVP was sent to the Raptors in exchange for Jakob Poeltl and DeRozan, who had been Lowry's teammate in Toronto since 2012.

Leonard, Lowry and the Raptors certainly made things work out by winning the franchise's first title.
