The Miami Heat are a roster loaded with veteran players who are experienced in the playoffs such as P. J. Tucker and Markieff Morris. They're gearing up to make a run for the championship after making the Finals during the 2019-20 season. One of their key acquisitions for the team was 6-time All-Star Kyle Lowry who was acquired from the Toronto Raptors in a sign-and-trade.
Kyle Lowry brings a lot to the table. He's one of the best playmakers in the league, and plays fairly solid defense as a point guard, often drawing charges and sacrificing his body.

He claimed that the Miami Heat "have a lot of intelligent players" and that some of them "are very athletic", but added that Kyle Lowry isn't one of them.
