Philadelphia coach Doug Collins — "He's fantastic. I love his game. I love the way he loves to play basketball. He's terrific."
New Jersey forward and former Texas teammate Damion James — "He deserves it. By far, he was one of the best players in the NBA last year and he really separated himself from the other players. He's doing great."
NBA TV studio host Marc Fein — "With four kids, and being in this business, I try to find people that I can feel comfortable having my kids root for.
