Not a lot of threes, a lot in the mid-range, getting to the cup. I think his IQ is what surprised me the most.”

He’s so humble, he has so much ability, you know and he loves the game, he’s a student of the game, he always wants to get better. With that humility and that love and that drive he has for the game, he’s one of the greats in the game for a long time.”
