Doncic, who seems to be the clear cut favorite to win Rookie of the Year honors, is taking the spotlight among all rookies this season.
Ayton isn’t concerned.
“I don’t care. That’s on them,” Ayton said, according to The Athletic.’s Michael Lee,
“The only thing for me, I want to win. This is an organization where we can make a lot of history and we have hungry fans and that’s the only thing on my mind. The only thing for me is to be consistent as a rookie, to keep playing hard, keep being coachable and just listen.”
Ayton is averaging 16.7 points, 10.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks per game this season.
“We all have different paths,” said Suns head coach Igor Kokoskov.
“We all live our own lives. It’s a good story for media and they all compare. In 20 years, it’s fair to draw the lines and see where we are, what we achieve. Maybe we have two Hall of Fame players. And that’s a pretty good class.”

Celtics’ Kyrie Irving Credits Team Meeting for Spark
The loss to Milwaukee back on December 21st was the Celtics’ 3rd in a row and dropped their record to 18-13 on the season.
“We could pinpoint a lot of turning points,” Irving said, according to Jay King of The Athletic.
“We just want to build that chemistry first. Just getting with one another (after the Bucks loss), really put everything out there and then move on from that point. At that point, playing against Milwaukee, we weren’t at rock bottom, but we needed to address some shit in this locker room. It’s just good to get stuff out in the air.”
Irving believes in this team’s chances this season, despite the early struggles.
“We’re not on a good team, we’re on a great one,” Irving said. “We have the talent to be great.”
