Kyle Lowry is an All Star caliber NBA player and the biggest difference between us might be that he can interact while focusing intently on a game that he is truly invested in. I think I am actually closer to being paid money millions of dollars to play professional basketball than I am to being personable, engaging, and informative while watching my team play. That one minute interview probably ranks in the top 5 of most impressive things I have seen an athlete do - on or off the court. Hell, if he didn't casually interject to narrate plays that were happening in real time during the Villanova game then I would have had no idea he was multitasking. Maybe I would have thought he was falling in love with the wall or something, but I wouldn't have known he was tempering his emotions while his alma mater was in the process of winning themselves a Final Four berth.
This interview reminds me of when talking on the phone was actually a thing people did (when they weren't just in desperate need of an ambulance), and girls would always find the most inopportune time to try to do it. Then you would sit there "talking" for an hour giving more canned one word answers than you would while sitting in a doctor's office. Thank God those days are over, because while women might tell you they were of detriment to healthy relationships, I would tell you they were of detriment to the sports viewing experience. If this were me it would have been 60 seconds of uh-huh's, yeah's, and what's like I was pretending to listen to a story that a friend was accidentally telling me for the 15th time, but Kyle Lowry responded to original questions (relatively speaking considering the state of sports media) with acceptable answers. I think I speak on behalf of every single one of my ex-girlfriends when I tell you that's simply not something I will ever be capable of.
