I've always said, this kid will grow a lot faster being out on that floor than he will sitting on the bench. It's good to see him trying to make the most of it. And I have said it before, I was very intrigued by the fact that he is a guy who, if he is not scoring points, he does other things on the floor that affect the game. Whether it is rebound or a blocked shot or a good pass. He doesn't have to score to be noticed out on the floor.
I see his confidence growing as well. He is getting into the mindset of knowing our league and knowing the level at which he has to play every night when he steps out on the floor. He is learning every night. One of the things that I was most concerned about bringing him on board was understanding this game. When we go through game plan, game strategy, is he really picking everything up? He will nod his head and say he is. And he is. He understands it. When he doesn't know, he asks questions. But right now when he steps on the floor you can see he is really bubbly. And he loves being out there. And it looks like he is having fun. And that is important.
