“He’s a local guy, playing at Arizona. Certainly a great night to be a Sun”

“The pressure is kind of on now”
“When you pair him with Dennis Smith, you talk about positionless basketball a lot. This is tremendous for Dallas”
“As Dirk retires and cap space opens up, this becomes a good destination in the future because this kid is a facilitator. He makes everybody around him better”
“They need somebody to complement Dennis Smith on the floor. Doncic is a scorer. It takes a lot of pressure off a young player trying to do too much”
“This is a bit of a risk because Doncic is a guy who some people think is going to be a special player, some people think he’s going to be a decent contributor”
“He’s taking jersey No. 2, Kyrie Irving’s jersey”
Windhorst: “5 years from now, people are not going to remember the Trae Young shorts, they’re going to remember that Shai wore that outfit”

: Young at No. 5
“I don’t think any of us saw him going that high”
Mavericks trading for Luka Doncic | Clippers trading two second round picks
“They insured that they got a guy they loved in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and drafted one of the most underrated players in this draft: Jerome Robinson. That backcourt needs help”
You believe that Patrick Beverley?

Statements; Better jacket game: Jackson Jr. or Wendell Carter Jr.?
Proofreading; Does Ayton need to be a bit more thorough?
