“It’s growing,” LaVine said of his relationship with Donovan. “I’m open with him, and I told him to be open with me. We’ve had ongoing dialogue. We text. We have phone calls. We have meetings. It’s been good. He wants the best out of you and he challenges you. I like that. I think I respond well to that. I appreciate him and I support him.” The feeling is mutual. “I attribute it to him,” Donovan said. “Ever since I came here, everything he’s wanted to do has been about winning… And I think he wants to be told what are the things that’s he’s got to do to take himself to a different level because he hasn’t won.
