Now in his eighth NBA season, McConnell is a fan favorite with a different team, the Indiana Pacers. In true McConnell fashion, the reserve point guard didn’t want to focus on his accomplishments as his team prepared to face the Sixers on Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. “I’m just trying to live in the moment,” he told The Inquirer. “I don’t want to focus on or reflect on anything that I’ve accomplished so far. I think when I’m done playing, there will be a time for that.”
“I’ve been watching him for a long time,” the coach said. “Payton Pritchard is T.J. McConnell with a jump shot, and that’s the guy you want on your team. “He was that guy that people always said wasn’t big enough, wasn’t fast enough, not athletic enough. But nobody figured out that he’s got huge balls and is skilled. I love the kid. I’m just interested to see how he fits there if Brogdon and (Derrick) White take up most of the (backcourt) time off the bench.”
