Indiana Pacers big man Myles Turner has the ultimate respect for point guard TJ McConnell.
(via Indiana Pacers):
“TJ’s someone who I came in with during a couple pre-draft. He didn’t get drafted, he was someone who had to kind of fight and claw for his opportunity, and I think he takes that same mentality year in and year out. He’s someone that nothing’s guaranteed for him, he knows that, and just the way TJ plays, as hard he plays, that’s never going to change. I think the mentality he built coming into the league pushed him into what he is now.”
