“Shaq continues to sing your praises,” Charles Barkley says in TNT’s pregame interview with Phoenix Suns 22-year old center Deandre Ayton.
You can tell that really meant something to Ayton. A lot of players in the league already think that their stuff doesn’t stink but Ayton will take that positive feedback to heart. The teary eyes of nervousness and youth should make every Suns fan smile. It was a great way to start the game and anytime you can get action from Ayton on the mic, it makes for an event and can fill you with wonder.
