Blake Griffin: Svi Mykhailiuk Is 'A Basketball Purist' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Jun 28, 2020 4:21 pm

Blake Griffin and Luke Kennard praised Svi Mykhailiuk's development over this past season, highlighting his natural feel for the game. 

Mykhailiuk averaged 11.8 points in 31 games as a starter, including shooting 40.2 percent from 3.

“Svi is one of the guys on our team who just really is like a basketball purist. He’s putting in the time every single day. He’s in the gym sometimes multiple times a day. He’s listening, he’s learning, he’s watching. He has a really good feel for the game," said Griffin.

Kennard noted Mykhailiuk's constant improvement and dedication to the game.

"He learned something every day. Svi is a workhorse, man. I mean he’s always in the gym. He’s always there getting shots up early, staying after. And he’s a smart player, he’s smooth.”

Would be thrilled to see him somehow land back with the Lakers again at some point. Great team guy and solid all around player.
