Kyle O’Quinn conducts a Twitter Q&A

New, comment

Oh, those lazy quarantine afternoons...

It has now been two-and-a-half weeks since our last taste of NBA basketball, and we’re all in the deep throes of that roundball withdrawal. To help pass the time during another afternoon without professional sports, Sixers big man Kyle O’Quinn hopped on the NBA’s offical Twitter account for a brief Q&A. Let’s get to some of the highlights:

While I’m a little disappointed to know a Sixers teammate doesn’t merit Kyle’s mantle of “funniest,” it’s hard to argue with Michael Beasley, who once sent us all down an existential spiral pondering the limits of the human brain.

At the time, O’Quinn’s 15-seed Norfolk State team upsetting the 2-seed Missouri Tigers was just the sixth time that a 15-over-2 upset had occurred in NCAA tournament history. However, it wasn’t even the best 15-over-2 upset that tournament (Lehigh beating Duke over everything). Still, what a memory for Kyle and his college teammates. I miss March Madness.

I don’t know if this is the same time with his mom as the one Kyle was talking about, but this tweet alone may be my favorite NBA moment in at least the last two-and-a-half weeks.

One thing we can all agree on: Matisse Thybulle’s smile is something contagious that I wouldn’t mind catching. Stay safe, everybody.
