By now, you’ve probably heard about Jamal Murray’s 12-point performance against the Dominican Republic last night. You may not have heard what former NBA All-Star Steve Nash, Team Canada’s general manager, had to say about it. Here are his comments via Sportsnet.ca:
“I’m just starting to get to know him,” Nash said of Murray. “I’ve watched him quite a bit. He’s got a tremendous amount of ability. He’s got a very bright future. It’s very exciting for our program. But it’s also exciting for me as a point guard – to see a young player come through with that much ability is very fun and exciting.”
Here’s a link to his highlights in case you missed them earlier. Murray and Team Canada take on Argentina tonight at 6 p.m. ET on WatchESPN.
