You should read the whole article, but here are some gems:

"I've known GP for about a year, since All-Star break last year," LaVine said. "He's always been one of my idols. I'm from Seattle, he played in Seattle, so growing up I watched him, and I didn't even know he knew Milt. I told Milt he's one of my biggest idols, so he's been coming here the last couple of days and he's been talking to me and it's been cool."

"I appreciate the mentorship," LaVine said. "I've learned a lot of stuff so far. I'm not sure if I want to tell you all the secrets though. I feel like you can pick stuff up fast. Just from talking with somebody, you don't have to spend a lot of time with them. Not physical attributed but mental things are the biggest things that I look for."
