Phoenix Suns rookie big man, and #1 overall pick DeAndre Ayton isn’t worried about being overshadowed by the sensational play of Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic.

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.”
