The Miami Heat are in a very peculiar spot right now as a team, franchise, and organization. Built to be able to maximize the greatness of Jimmy Butler, as displayed by his two trips deep into the NBA Playoffs in three years, there is a bit of mystery surrounding this current bunch.

While they seem to have the talent to be able to compete with anybody in the league on a given night, they’ve shown inconsistencies that leave them susceptible to being beaten by any team on a given night as well.

And while that problem has to be bigger than any one man, one player’s performance has really come under scrutiny because of it.

In the second year of a three-year arrangement for about $90 million bucks, Kyle Lowry hasn’t quite lived up to the hopes of some that support the Miami Heat. And in fact, his name has been a rather hot topic in terms of trades, from the perspective of some of the rumors out there and the actual hopes of some Miami Heat fans

The Miami Heat have lots of hoops left before them on the year and to get where they hope to go, they’ll need the best that Kyle Lowry can offer them.

Here was Lowry’s take on that chatter though.

"“I’ve been in trade rumors before,” he said. “I have a very nice contract that can be moved. The organization believes in me and I’m glad to be here. “I want to stay. I enjoy this place. I picked this place. I feel we have a chance to always compete for a title. With Jimmy, Bam, Tyler and Spo as a coach we always have an opportunity.”"

And to the point of his overall production, the veteran point guard continued to say the right things. Effectively saying that he would love to produce at a super high level on his own accord, but he knows that it isn’t the way this particular bunch would go about maximizing themselves.

And you know what? That’s the exact right answer.

Though he could stand to shoot more of his open opportunities than he does, his role isn’t to chuck in Miami. Again, you could stand him to shoot more of his open looks, but there are intricacies that go into that as well.

Here is exactly how Lowry articulated it though when asked about his production, specifically, about his “low-scoring totals”.

"“I don’t care,” he said. “Of course, I would love to average 25, but if it doesn’t win games and doesn’t help our team overall, it doesn’t matter. I would rather get two points and help these guys win the game.” But he also makes this clear: “I always want to do better. Individually you want to do better. But if your team is winning, you go with what it is.”"

So, whether you are a fan of Lowry or not, still want him with the Miami Heat or not, or are just a general commentator making an observation from afar about a team that you’ve seen play basketball this season—Kyle Lowry doesn’t seem to care.
