Who were some of the veterans who had the biggest impact on you and mentored you the most – whether it’s on or off the court. Collin Sexton: K-Love, Chris Paul and Coach Avery Johnson. Those guys, they’ve been where I want to get to. I just take bits and pieces of their game so that I can learn from them and understand the game even more. My relationship with Chris goes back to high school when I played on his teams (Team CP3). Ever since then, we’ve just been building that relationship. I talk to him every week and just pick his brain and figure out how he feels about certain plays and things that I can incorporate into my game. It’s cool.
Which point guards did you look up to the most when you were growing up? Collin Sexton: My favorites were Allen Iverson and Kobe Bryant. Those two are my guys. I got a chance to sit down with Kobe and talk to him for about 40-to-45 minutes, just picking his brain. It was cool. I’m [glad] that I got to meet him before the tragedy. But it was cool, just being able to sit down with Kobe Bryant – one of the best to ever play – and being able to ask him pretty much anything. We talked about everything.
Second-year guard Collin Sexton suggested an alteration to the halftime routine so players could get back onto the court quicker for warmups, maybe around the five- or six-minute mark. Is that a start? Would that help? “Just get the legs going, the blood flowing,” Garland said. “That’s on us. We’re professionals. We’re grown men. It’s on us.”
