Brett Reed, CJ McCollum’s coach at Lehigh University, on how Damian Lillard and McCollum fit alongside each other: “You’ve got two guys that I think are really vested into winning. And because of that commitment to winning, more so than even their own personal accolades, you’re seeing the team kind of follow that lead and exceed expectations, grow and develop. And I think they found a way to really complement and support each other in a great way that builds a strong team.”

When asked for his thoughts on Wade, McCollum didn’t hold back in his praise. Dwyane Wade is a very special player. Obviously, you look at his game; it’s well-rounded. He’s one of the rare guards in the NBA that play the 2-guard and still post up. He can play back-to-basket, he can manipulate pick-and-rolls, and he can create for others. So guarding him is a nightmare at times because he gets to that right hand, you know he’s going all the way to the cup. He can go left, pump fake, hit you with the right-to-left crossover. He’s got a very mixed arsenal. There’s a reason why they call him ‘Father Prime.’
