Rapper Jack Harlow was in attendance for Game 1 of the Knicks-Heat playoff series, and he seemingly confirmed a hilarious rumor about Kyle Lowry.
Lowry fell into Harlow, who was sitting courtside, after taking a contested three-point shot. His reaction to the play instantly went viral on social media.
Lowry’s lower body has been a talking point amongst NBA fans and media dating back to last season. Photos of his backside began to circulate online during last year’s playoffs, which led many to post comical responses.
One of those people was former NFL star Ryan Clark, who sent out a Twitter message saying, “Kyle Lowry has to be wearing some kind of padding under his uniform. No way my man built like that.”
On Sunday, Jack Harlow gave fans an answer to the rumors.

“Kyle Lowry just took a fadeaway three and landed in my lap,” Harlow said. “His s— was like a pillow.”
Fans immediately lost it.
One person wrote, “Someone lock Jack Harlow up NOW!”
Someone else commented, “Pause. Flagrant 2 on Jack Harlow.”
As far as the game goes, the Heat would take a 1-0 series lead with a road win over the Knicks. Jimmy Butler led Miami with 25 points, though he did go down with a late ankle injury in the fourth quarter.
Lowry added 18 points off the bench, nailing half of his three-point attempts and dishing out a team-high six assists.
Game 2 of the series will take place on Tuesday night in Madison Square Garden. New York will look to even the series before heading to South Beach.
