  • Coach K: "I was ecstatic about watching him today. He’s better than four years ago. Four years ago, he was 21, and he was just on the verge of becoming who he was going to be. But he had a great practice today. You don’t practice like this [every day]. He hasn’t been in practices like this. Now [we'll] watch what he does for the next few days."
  • Damien Lillard: "D. Rose, he's just a phenomenal player. Athletically, you can tell just by watching him... Because of his athletic ability, I don't think anybody internationally will be able to stay in front of him. So he can get in the lane, make those plays for guys to knock down easy shots."
  • Jim Boeheim: "He's been the most impressive guy here."
