Much has been made over Kyle Lowry's dramatic transformation.

Lowry, the formerly rotund point guard who weighed 210 pounds last season, shocked the basketball world when images of a new, lean, and clean Lowry surfaced on Instagram during the summer.

His weight loss was a talking point on a recent episode of "The Dan Le Batard Show," and Lowry detailed how he and teammate DeMar DeRozan would occasionally slip out for late-night fast-food runs.

"Whose idea was it to walk to McDonalds to get McFlurrys at like three in the morning? It was yours," DeRozan said to Lowry.

"That was when I was fat, though," Lowry quickly shot back.

The two did eventually make it to the drive-thru window, but since they didn't have a vehicle, the two All-Stars were denied service. They ended up having to get a motorcyclist to get their order.

Based on Lowry's weight loss, it appears those late-night escapades have subsided - and it's for the best. Lowry is slated to start the All-Star Game for the Eastern Conference in two weeks, and DeRozan will likely join him as a reserve.
