Young / Monk / Lowe

I love this Zach Lowe sentence, a mere parenthetical remark, about Trae Young’s passing.

(Seriously: He has every pass, and he releases the ball a beat earlier or later — depending on what does the most damage — than the typical NBA point guard. Such quirky timing is the mark of genius in a passer.)

It reminds me of how I’ve heard some people describe the piano phrasings of Thelonious Monk. And it is like the thing it describes — a nice feat for a writer.
