The thing I think Lucas has is that calm poise and mature demeanor about him and he makes everyone around him better.
I took the PATH train in, and I work next to the World Trade Center. The PATH station smelled like popcorn, unlike the urine and blood of the New York City subways. I was immediately smitten.
[James] has taken his game to a level that separates the good from the elite. Right now, he has to be one of those guys that makes the NBA wish it didn't pass the age-limit rule.
Love is one of the top five players in the country, regardless of class. He's old-school, tough as nails and he's starting to extend his game out to the 3-point line. If you're a basketball purist, he's fun to watch.
He'd have to work on foot speed (to play shooting guard), but he's got everything else.
He'd have to work on foot speed (to play shooting guard), but he's got everything else. He really can do just about anything. When he leaves the floor, everybody is going to get out of their seats, because he's got great volleyball instincts. He has the ability to explode off the floor and he does it so gracefully. A lot of that has to do with timing he learned in volleyball.
He was known more so as a perimeter guy last year, and over the course of the end of last season to where he is now, he's gotten a lot more mature in terms of how he understands the game.
It builds to a crescendo.
