Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry had everything set up for him to be a hero Monday night at the end of Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Down by one, clock winding down, chance to win the NBA Finals, gets a good look at the basket, and… he missed the shot very badly.

Kyle Lowery, on the other hand, was nowhere near Scotiabank Arena Wednesday night.

That didn’t stop him from joining the ranks of people blamed for things they did not do like what happened to folks with names similar to Eric Weddle, Michael Cohen, Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Gordon, Jon Jones, Dee Ford, Zane Gonzalez, Chris Conte, Zion Williamson, and others.

It’s something that happens so often now that if you have a name similar to someone famous, and they do something people don’t like, you might as well just play along. That’s what Kyle Lowery did and it was pretty great.

It couldn’t have been easy. Take a look at this venomous tweet.

That one tweet triggered SOOOOO many comments trying to correct it.

Some people still didn’t get it.

It’s not the first time he’s been tagged for something the “other” Kyle did either.

Truth. So, solution?

It wasn’t all bad though.

Silver lining!
