One of the best postgame interviews of the season so far 😂 pic.twitter.com/k893WoVaXD— Orlando Magic (@OrlandoMagic) January 21, 2021
The 2020 draft class is the gift that just keeps on giving. Their lack of canned answers in interviews is so refreshing and fun and it should stay that way.
Deandre Ayton joins Shawn Marion as the only Suns players with 25 points, 15 rebounds & 5 blocks in a game over the last 30 seasons pic.twitter.com/d8n4LO3Vs2— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) January 21, 2021
For two seasons, Deandre Ayton has been called a draft bust and a "poor decision" because he was selected first overall before Luka Dončić and Trae Young. Ayton’s rise has been slower than his draftmates, but during the Phoenix Suns’ most successful season in recent memory, he is proving he is anything but a bust.

The shittiest part of Shaq being an asshole is that none of these players can beat his old ass lmaoooo.— sandie (@sandiesideup) January 22, 2021
Picturing Donovan Mitchell trying to square up with Shaq with Shaq simply flicking him away like an ant.
RJ Barrett bout to have his 5th good game in a row now, need the TL to speak on it.— Robel (@robeltussin) January 22, 2021
And he did! The Knicks’ win over the Golden State Warriors came largely in part from Barrett’s 28 points and 5-assist contributions.
