Shooting Russ Smith is Shooting... Humbly?

So I know a lot of us (mostly playfully) rag on Russ as a shooter who only thinks about getting his, and I sort of agreed. Then, I found this video in the related videos section of Howie's UL vs. WVU football highlights, and seeing as it's basketball season I figured I'd watch it just to maybe get more insight on this team. I started watching with the expectation of Russ being super giddy after a game in which he was given the green light to shoot to his heart's content and revealing the shooter's superego that I (and I know I wasn't the only Cards fan who had the same view) just knew he had. But then Russ started talking. And he was so laid back. And he didn't want to talk about his shots, or his scoring, and when directly asked about it he diverted the attention from himself and so truthfully talked all about how he felt bad for the players who were hurt that gave him a chance to play and how he only wants to do something special and be a part of it with his teammates. Just watch it for yourself and see. All I know is that I couldn't stop watching until it was over. After seeing this short close up, Russ seems like a special young man. Somehow I love this team even more.
