Kyle Lowry does not see size. On the basketball court he sees only opportunity.

Whether the opponent between him and that opportunity is bigger or smaller than him just doesn’t enter into it.

In Lowry’s mind the opportunity is what matters.

We know this because after a recent game in Cleveland we were asking him about his penchant for going in the areas where the bigs normally roam and winning more than his fair share of battles.

On that particular night, Lowry was pulling down rebounds at a rate a man his size has no business doing.

After his scrum with a handful of media types, Lowry was asked if there was a particular art to winning those loose balls when going up against men twice his size.

Lowry looked at his questioner like the answer was obvious to anyone with half a brain.

“No, you just go get it,” he said half smiling at the absurdity of the question or more likely the guy asking it.
