“He’s a tremendous example, in my eyes, of what a professional really is," Brett Brown, then the Sixers head coach, said. "You see how he takes care of his body, you watch how he prepares for a game. ... He’s class. He’s all class. To see him get rewarded tonight as a Philadelphia 76er, as one of our own, with 10,000 NBA points, that’s a big number. That’s hard to do. I’m just so proud of him and I’m especially grateful to have him in our program, showing the way to a lot of our young guys.”
